Marianne Vos took the third stage win of the 2019 Giro Rosa on Thursday on yet another uphill finish in San Giorgio di Perlena.

After a day of constant up and down, the final three kilometres were again uphill, with some ramps well into double figures. The punchy nature of the route meant that Vos was able to take time on all but compatriot Anna van der Breggen (Boels-Dolmans), with Elisa Longo Borghini (Trek-Segafredo) finishing third, some three seconds back.
