2017 Giro Rosa Stage 10 – the last chance! Videos, photos, media and more

The final stage of the 2017 Giro Rosa, and the last chance for General Classification hopefuls to take aim at Anna van der Breggen, and for everyone else to go for that final moment of glory.  Nine flat-ish laps, and a stage final going up then don Mount Vesuvius, before screaming into the finish.

It was pretty much non-stop attacks, especially from the sprinters, who hoped that if they could get enough room, they could hit the top of Vesuvius before the climbers overwhelmed them, and still be in with a chance.  And of course, all kinds of riders were making moves.  Boels-Dolmans were ready for everything the rest could throw at them…. but would it be enough?

As aways, I’ll add in more videos as I see them – and remember, I’ll be talking about the Giro at Look Mum No Hands! in London on 19th July – please do join me, if you can.

Ever wondered how the UCI highlights videos are made? Listen to Rose Manley talk about her amazing work, in this podcast-interview.

If you are in Italy, or have a VPN, please do watch the highlights on RAI – but if not….

If you’ve been enjoying the Giro, click through to the race sponsor page, and thank their sponsors, it really makes a difference.  And I’ve got some more very simple ideas of what we all can do to help women’s cycling – please do take 5 minutes to do some of these, because it all adds up.

I still don’t know what’s happening here…







Looking on the Vélofocus twitter, I saw this from earlier in the week, which is pretty classic Giro Rosa…
