Movistar take cost in hilly Vuelta Femenina stage 4 as mountains loom

In the future after initiating the echelons that put a number of GC riders out of rivalry for the Vuelta Femenina general victory, the Movistar Workforce had a plan for the ultimate of stage 4, too. After setting a tough tempo up the ultimate climb, the workforce’s GC playing cards Annemiek van Vleuten and Liane Lippert took turns attacking. Though the race got here all the way down to a dash ultimately, the assaults helped Emma Norsgaard who sprinted to a second place that “felt like a victory” after an injury-marred spring for the Danish sprinter.

“It was one other day the place we had a great plan for the ultimate. The concept was to stretch it out with Paula [Patiño] and Floortje [Mackaij], and we set it up precisely as we wished. It was a pleasant workforce effort once more with Paula pacing tremendous laborious on the climb to arrange the assaults. After the GPM we wished to assault, I did, then Liane took over, and I went once more,” Van Vleuten described the motion on the plateau after the day’s solely labeled climb, the third-category Alto de Horche.
