Premondiale Giro Toscana
Stage 2: Pontedera - Volterra - Stage Details

It was quiet day in the bunch for ORICA-AIS. Stage two of the Giro della Toscana ended in a bunch sprint won by race leader Marianne Vos (Rabobank Women). Vos extended her race lead thanks to bonus seconds on the line.

After three days of racing, Vos leads Bronzini, in second, by 18” while Cromwell sits in third place 21” behind the Dutchwoman. Johansson remains in fifth place overall and was the best finisher for the Australian outfit on Friday, just outside the top ten on the stage.  

"Our intentions were very conservative. With both Emma and Tiff having a high GC position and the anticipation of a fast flat race, we elected to make ourselves as inconspicuous as possible and stay fresh for tomorrow's decisive mountain stage." - Sport Director Martin Barras
