While sports fans watch and wait in anticipation to see if Mark Cavendish will surpass Eddy Merckx’s record 35 stage wins at the Tour de France, over the border in Italy, another cycling icon, Marianne Vos, is chasing a remarkable 33rd career stage victory at the Giro d’Italia Donne.

Vos is racing her 18th season in the professional peloton and has been one of the best riders in the world for close to two decades, with 13 world championship titles across three disciplines - road, cyclo-cross and track - along with two gold medals in road and track racing at the Olympic Games.
