Maria ready for action!

The Russian cyclist of  Cogeas Mettler Look Maria Novolodskaya, continues to attract great attention in this edition of the Giro Rosa 2020.

Yesterday, during the seventh day of the Giro Rosa, María Novolodskaya escaped again with a lot of bravery  and challenging a large squad full of champions. Despite having suffered a great fall the day before during the sixth stage.

 

Novolodskaya true to her style, launched a strong change of pace in the last quarter of the race, disputed between the towns of Nola and Maddaloni with a total distance of 112 kilometers.

The race became more dynamic, since in her escape Maria achieved a difference of one minute and forty seconds. And it was with 10 kilometers to go that a hard-working platoon hunted down the Cogeas Mettler Look member.

In this way, María Novolodskaya once again shines with her own light in a stage of the most prestigious races such as the Giro Rosa 2020.

Congratulations Maria!!!

Novolodskaya close to victory in the Giro Rosa 2020

The Russian Cogeas Mettler Look cyclist Mari­a Novolodskaya was less than five kilometers from winning the sixth stage of the Giro Rosa held this Wednesday, September 16, between the towns of Torre del Greco and Nola with a total distance of 96.5 kilometers.

Maria Novolodskaya launched an attack just over 13 kilometers before the finish line, kept the group under control for a good portion of the race, unfortunately less than five kilometers to the finish, the Russian from Cogeas Mettler Look suffered a spectacular fall on a curve which kept her from any possibility of victory. Maria was assisted by neutral teams and quickly joined the race.

The sixth stage of the Giro Rosa 2020 was seasoned with multiple escape attempts, which were controlled by the peloton, and it was with 13 kilometers before the finish line that María Novolodskaya bravely attempted the escape, practically giving the deadly thrust to the group that could not reach the Russian. Unfortunately for Maria the bad state of the road played a trick on her, the Russian from Cogeas Mettler Look fell losing the important 30 seconds that could turn into victory.

 

Finally the stage victory went to Marianne Vos, Annemiek Van Fluten continues to lead.

Congratulations Maria Novolodskaya for your effort and sacrifice !!!
