After the sixth and seventh place of the first fraction, Chiara Consonni and Silvia Persico were once again confirmed among the best in the RideLondon Classique.
Another important confirmation arrives from the streets of London. After the sixth and seventh place of the first fraction, Chiara Consonni and Silvia Persico were once again confirmed among the best in the RideLondon Classique.
In the final sprint that characterized the second stage (from Chelmsford to Epping of 141 km) the two athletes of Valcar – Travel & Service crossed the finish line respectively in fifth and sixth position.
The race tactics of Davide Arzeni’s girls were very shrewd, who did not let themselves be enticed by the altitude of the stage, on paper the most demanding of the three, remaining in the first positions of the group and managing the crucial stages of the race. Silvia Persico, for example, won the third mountain grand prix of the day; before her, Chiara Consonni had taken the lead, third in the first intermediate sprint at the 62nd km.
And it was again the two from Bergamo who competed in the group sprint in Epping, finishing in fifth and sixth position. It should be noted that Karolina Kumi? Ga also closed in the leading group, 25th at the finish.
Results that allow Valcar – Travel & Service to jump to the top of the team classification, with a 9 ″ advantage over Team SD Worx
With these four top 10 in two stages, tomorrow Valcar – Travel & Service will go on the hunt for another striking result in the iconic London circuit, the city where the RideLondon Classique will end. Six returns for a total of 85 km and in which the athletes will pass on some of the most famous streets of the capital.
And, on paper, a new group sprint should be seen at Victoria Embankment.
