Cancelled Giro d’Italia Donne ITT ‘a lottery’ says Annemiek van Vleuten

In her final season as a professional cyclist, Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar Team) wants to bow out on a high note. She is the defending champion in the Giro d’Italia Donne as well as the Tour de France Femmes, and wants to defend both the maglia rosa and maillot jaune in July. 

The start of her Giro d’Italia Donne defence was rained out, though. The opening 4.4km time trial was first paused, then cancelled, as the race jury applied the extreme weather protocol due to heavy rain, lightning and standing water on the course.
