Team DSB Bank's Marianne Vos won everything she could this weekend while racing a talented women's field at the Giro di San Marino. The Dutchwoman dominated the race from start to finish.
Friday, the world road champion won the opening four kilometre prologue eight and nine seconds respectively ahead of Lithuanian Edita Pucinskaite (Equipe Nurnberger Versicherung) and Amber Neben (USA National Team). Saturday, she outsprinted a 46 rider group at the end of an 87 kilometre road race. That day she beat Marta Bastianelli (Safi - Pasta Zara Manhattan) and Martina Corazza (A.S. Team F.R.W) in the final dash.
On the final stage, she survived three big climbs and arrived at the finish in a pack of 18. Again, she outsprinted Batianelli, but this time, she locked up her overall win in the general classification ahead of Pucinskaite and two-time Tour de L'Aude winner Neben.
