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.
