Abbott solos to Giro Rosa stage victory

2010 champion takes over leader's jersey from Vos

It was a July 4th to remember for the US National Team's Mara Abbott as she soloed to victory on stage 5 at the Giro Rosa, 73.3km from Varazze to Monte Beigua, and took over the leader's jersey from Marianne Vos (Rabo Women Cycling Team).

Abbott, the 2010 Giro Donne champion, showcased her climbing ability on the 14.8km, category-one rated finishing ascent as she arrived 1:44 ahead of runner-up Francesca Cauz (Top Girls Fassa Bortolo) and 1:49 in front of third-placed Fabiana Luperini (Faren-Kuota). Overnight leader Marianne Vos, paced to the finish by teammate Megan Guarnier, crossed the line in 15th place at 5:15 which dropped the Dutch star to seventh overall on general classification.

Three years after winning the Italian stage race, Mara Abbott once again is in the leader's jersey, 1:27 ahead of nearest rival Tatiana Guderzo (MCipollini Giordana). Luperini, third on the stage, is now third overall at 1:34. Vos trails Abbott by 3:20.

Abbott arrived at the base of the finishing ascent in the main peloton and soon went out on the attack, accompanied by compatriot Evelyn Stevens (Specialized-lululemon). Stevens stayed with Abbott for approximately two kilometres, but she couldn't keep pace with Abbott who rode alone through to the finish. Stevens would ultimately finish 10th on the day, 3:51 behind Abbott.

Abbott started the stage in ninth overall, 2:05 down on Vos, but climbed her way into the overall lead.

"I'm going to try to protect this lead with the help of my teammates," Abbott said. "They have been great so far. They've done everything that's been asked of them. I have confidence that they will continue to give everything until the end."

The Giro Rosa peloton faces another mountain finish on Friday, with the category one ascent to San Domenico awaiting at the stage finale. Saturday's 120km stage should be a day for the sprinters in advance of Sunday's concluding stage, a flat 16km individual time trial.
