Giro d'Italia Internazionale Femminile
Stage 8: Verbania - San Domenico di Varzo - Stage Details

Emma Johansson has finished tenth in a tough mountain finish on the penultimate stage of the Giro d'Italia Internazionale Femminile.

A 23km uphill finish, including a 13km climb with an average gradient of 8%, meant it was a day for the climbers. Current Queen of the Mountain Emma Pooley (LBL) took out her second stage win of the Tour.

With the climb on the peloton’s mind, it was a fast and furious start to racing.

“The team plan was to try and get a couple of riders up the road in support of Emma for the final climb,” sport director Gene Bates said.
