Hagiwara makes history at the Giro Rosa

Mayuko Hagiwara (Wiggle Honda) made history Thursday by winning stage 6 of the 2015 Giro Rosa.

The Japanese rider covered her face in disbelief upon crossing the finishing line after holding off a fierce chase. Megan Guarnier (Boels-Dolmans) followed in second, 24 seconds later to keep the maglia rosa, with Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (Bigla Pro Cycling) in third.
