Giro della Toscana
Stage 1: Porcari - Viareggio - Stage Details

Recap:

Stage one of Toscana ended in a bunch kick won by Road World Champion Giorgia Bronzini (Diadora Pasta Zara). Jessie MacLean contested the sprint, with a bit of help from Tiffany Cromwell, and managed ninth place at the line.

"The stage ended on a circuit that we raced around twice. Tiff looked after me here. She kept me safe on the technical bits, and she did an awesome job over the one little climb on both circuit laps. Her tempo on the front strung out the field, and the increase in the pace made things safer for everyone.

I hung around a little too far back than I probably should have. I stayed near Giorgia Bronzini, who is on a killer winning streak at the moment. Everyone wanted Giorgia’s wheel, so it gets a bit messy near her. Giorgia Bronzini won the stage. I went on to finish ninth." - Jessie MacLean
