Cylance Pro Cycling stamped its presence again at the Giro Rosa with a commanding win of Stage 7 by Sheyla Gutiérrez (ESP). Sheyla crossed the line in full celebration showing her newly minted Spanish National Championship jersey.
It was the seventh day of the ten day tour, and Cylance Pro Cycling already had achieved a 3rd place finish with Kirsten Wild (NED) in a fast sprint finish on the second stage. But yearning for more results, the team was determined to start the race aggressively, and the first Cylance Pro Cycling rider to establish a small break was Dani King (GBR). After many more attacks, the break of the day was established with eleven riders including two of the women in green represented with Sheyla and Rossella Ratto (ITA). With 5 kilometers remaining, it was clear that the break would stay away from the charging peloton. Rossella was determined to secure victory for her teammate, Sheyla, and pushed the pace into a fast leadout as Sheyla sprinted to the line in victory ahead of all others.
This win added to the team’s success in the Women’s World Tour, and solidified Sheyla’s first World Tour win. The team looks to finish the Giro Rosa strongly and continue to find podiums worldwide.
Cylance Pro Cycling Roster for BC Superweek, Andersen Banducci Twilight Criterium
As the women conclude the grand tour, Giro Rosa, in Italy, the men of Cylance Pro Cycling head to Canada for BC Superweek before swinging back south into Idaho for the Andersen Banducci Twilight in Boise. BC Superweek is one of the most hotly contested series in North America due to the fast courses and large prize purses. It offers 9 races over a period of 10 days in the scenic British Columbia; in 2016 Cylance Pro Cycling riders found great success with three wins and two podium appearances between Scott Law (then with Subaru NSWIS Development Team) and Justin Williams.
The Cylance Pro Cycling team will then travel back to the United States for the next stop on the USA Cycling Pro Road Tour, the Andersen Banducci Twilight Criterium in Boise, ID. This will be the first time the team attends Boise’s most prestigious cycling event.
