Report from Noemi Cantele:

I’m really happy to have achieved this goal. I tried for several years to get this jersey but being alone without teammates it has always been impossible.

Yesterday, everything finally went right.

The race was demanding from the start and after 3 of the 11 laps I was in the breakaway, the first in 9
riders.

Then with four laps to go, I attacked on the bottom of the hill and only Guderzo remained with me.

In the last 8km she stopped working with me so I had to pull alone till the end, and have confidence that I could beat her in the sprint.

In the end it all came together.

I could not be more proud with this win and to wear the jersey of my country, it is a honor.

Congratulations to Guderzo, also. She did a good race.
