Giro Rosa: Voss wins, continues in the Pink leaders jersey
 
“The attack from the Russian Ilinykh was ok for the group. That's why the race went on fire only in the final meters. A crash meant that some of my teammates were dropped back, but Lucinda Brand was with me in the finish and I think she would have really deserved to win. There will be some other occasions for her”, said the winner Marianne Vos.

Stage 4 of the Giro Rosa finally hits the coast, 118km north along the Adriatic, heading inland for the finish to Jesi. Once again, Marianne Vos (Rabo Liv Women Cycling Team) is the leader of the Giro, winning the Alba Adriatica-Jesi stage, ahead of the American Shelley Olds (Alè Cipollini Galassia) and the Dutch Lucinda Brand (Rabo Liv Women Cycling Team). Today's protagonist was the Russian Yulia Ilinykh (Bizkaia Durango), who attacked after 50 km and took the lead of the race for 60 km, with a maximum 3-minute gap. Thanks to her attack, she was able to take the first intermediate sprint win in Potenza Picena (Marina Romoli's home town) and the KOM title, too.

With only 5 km to go, the peloton closed down on the break and just before the line the Dutch champion out sprinted a small leading group and seized her second victory of this edition of the Giro, as well as the Pink Jersey.

Tomorrow the Giro continues with a 118,300 kilometers stage from the Region Marche up to Emilia Romagna, finishing in Cesenatico, home town of the famous rider Marco Pantani. This stage is designed for the sprinters.
