Anna van der Breggen is primed to win a second world title at the 2020 UCI Road World Championships after securing the overall win at the Giro Rosa on Saturday at Motta Montecorvino, Italy. The Dutch champion, who won the world title in Innsbruck two years ago, will lead the Dutch national team in Imola, after Annemiek van Vleuten was sidelined due to a fractured wrist.  

She secured the Giro Rosa overall victory at the end of nine stages on Saturday and said she was ready to fight for the rainbow jersey in both the elite women’s time trial on September 24 and the road race on September 26.
