Longo Borghini wins Giro dell'Emilia Donne

Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle High5) defended her title at Giro dell’Emilia Donne, winning the race on the steep slopes up to the Santuario della Madonna di San Luca, a 2km final climb. The Italian brought back a late attack from Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (Cervélo-Bigla), and went on to beat the South African to the line by three seconds. Belarusian Alena Amialiusik (Canyon-SRAM) completed the podium another ten seconds back.

“It was a very good race, it was a fast one and we worked really well,” Longo Borghini in a press release. “Chloe [Hosking] managed to be always in the top three in the sprints, and in the end the team led me out before the climb. Chloe was very, very good, Gio [Bronzini] pulled a lot, and Emma [Johansson] was able to help me to find a good position.”

The women raced for 99km, beginning in the Emilia Romagna capital of Bologna, before following a flat parcours to San Luca. The final 2.2km consisted of the steep climb to the finish line. Longo Borghini and Moolman-Pasio escaped the peloton, and contested the victory with the Italian winning by three seconds.
