After Equipe Paule Ka bettered some of the top Women's WorldTour teams during the opening team time trial, Lizzy Banks took the second Giro Rosa win of her career on stage 4 in Tivoli.

Last year, Banks' stage win also came on the longest stage of the race, and this year she won on a day which marked the lengthiest Women's WorldTour race to date. Coming in at over 170km, the stage appeared to be suited to a breakaway, and after several attempts from her colleagues, Banks successfully broke free with Eugenia Bujak (Ale BTC Ljubljana), who would settle for second.
