Giro Rosa (d'Italia Femminile) 2019

Can we get an F to pay respects for Lucy Kennedy, the latest victim of Vos the Boss:

If you watched the Trek/Voxwomen coverage, you got to see the stranglehold Mitchelton-Scott had on the peloton at that point. Really spectacular racing.

GCN Racing YT channel also has extended highlights.

Vos almost seemed sad that she won that race lol. Stage 4 looks like another one for Vos. Excited to see the rest of this one, it will be nice to watch the women race in the mountains for once.

Oh man, did you see Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio leading CCC-Liv up the team time trial the other day? I’m not sure she was even sweating. I cannot wait for stage 5.

Based on my zero years of experience racing in the WWT I’ve cooked up a quick guide for celebrating a win in a bike race:

  1. Win.
  2. Celebrate the win.

Note that the order is crucial!

Yes, in the Mitchelton-Scott highlight video Lucy Kennedy acknowledges that she committed the cardinal sin of pumping her fist before the finish line. Would love to have heard what was being said on the team radio in those moments.
