Emakumeen Bira 2019

Emakumeen Bira 2019 - Overview

 

The Emakumeen Bira marked the 12th round of the Women's WorldTour and the third stage race after the completion of the Tour of Chongming Island and Tour of California earlier in May. It was full-on racing to the very end with Elisa Longo Borghini (Trek-Segafredo) securing the final stage win and the overall victory.

The historical stage race took place in the Basque Country from May 22-25, and this year it had attracted the world's best climbers including Mitchelton-Scott's 2018 winner Amanda Spratt and runner-up Annemiek van Vleuten.

Organisers of Emakumeen Bira announced the toughest route in the event's 30-year history. The four-day race was more mountainous than in previous editions. The most significant change to this year's competition was that they removed the individual time trial in favour of adding more climbing.
