Amanda Spratt and two-time stage winner Annemiek van Vleuten finished in second and fourth place on today’s final stage of the ten-day WorldTour race, the Giro Rosa.
The two ORICA-SCOTT riders arrived at the finish line in a small group of general classification contenders after breaking away on the final climb of the race.
The stage result today meant van Vleuten successfully retained third place overall and won the Queen of the mountains and points jersey’s along with Spratt moving up one spot to conclude the Giro Rosa in fifth place for the Australian outfit.
“For me the most important thing was to come away with two stage wins,” Van Vleuten said. “Third on GC is nice and to win two jersey’s is also nice but winning is the best thing for me, I always want to win.”
