Marianne Vos (CCC-Liv), who has won three stages of this edition of the Giro Rosa, was involved in a crash with overall leader Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) that prevented her from contesting the stage 7 final sprint in Maddaloni. CCC-Liv confirmed that Vos' injuries include abrasions but no fractures.

“I don’t know exactly what happened,” Vos said. “I was one of the first to crash, the girls in front of me touched wheels and then it was one big domino.”
