Videos! Stage 5, Giro Rosa 2014

It was the last day before the mountains start – fast, fast, fast.  Before you do anything else, read Chloe Hosking’s blog about it, it gives a really great insight into how team tactics work, and what it’s like inside the sprint.

My race report is on Podium Café, but here are videos and links I liked from the stage.

Full hour of highlights from Italian tv – and 15 mins race highlights from the race organisers, with English interviews with Evie Stevens and Marianne Vos

Here’s Marianne Vos describing the finish, in English

More blogs from Tiffany Cromwell on CyclingTips and from Peta Mullens – and the great photos from Velofocus

Two more videos from Rabo – profiling the bus driver/soigneur

and any doubt as to who the Rabo riders were supporting in the football World Cup?
