Today was a day of a number of endings. Not only this was the last Women’s World Tour race in Europe but today was the legendary Giorgia Bronzini’s last day as a racer. Final races are normally easy affairs for the retiring riders, most of them are over their peaks and it is rare that they are in contention for the win. Yet, Bronzini was there, when around the middle of the race, a big group broke off from the main peloton. And she was there at the very end, to finish an illustrious career with an illustrious win.
The Women’s World Tour now has only one round left, but for now, all eyes on the Worlds!
