Marianne Vos added yet another win to her stellar palmarès, winning the second stage of the Giro Rosa Iccrea. The triple world road champion sprinted to victory on a tough uphill finish ahead of Dutch compatriots Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) and Lucinda Brand (Sunweb).

Despite a cut to her knee from a crash earlier in the day, general classification leader Kasia Niewiadoma will continue to wear the maglia rosa as the race moves into the coming eight stages.
