9.35 But there isn’t any kind of continuous action, and we regret not seeing any blue uniform at the head of the platoon to relaunch the action.
9.34 Now the group is led by Chloe Dygert (USA).
9.33 Anna Kiesenhofer (Austria) enters the final circuit.
9.30 A totally new Olympic podium could come out, with three exclusive nations and three athletes who are deserving of the race. They dared, cooperated well, mocking all of them.

9.11 Omer Shapira (Israel) begins to lose something.
9.08 Ruth Winder leads the group in favor of the United States.

8.58 The group is increasingly thinner and no one is able to react vigorously. Only 50 km to go.
8.55 Annemiek van Vleten has already earned 40 ″ on the group. We must react, otherwise the European champion risks making a void.
8.53 The second blue also comes off, Soraya Paladin.
8.52 BUT NOW COMES A DECISIVE ATTACK BY VAN VLEUTEN !!!
8.51 Meanwhile, the blue Marta Bastianelli and the Australian Tiffany Cromwell stand out.

8.43 The blue have nothing to lose. Time passes, and if they want to bet big, they have to move the race as soon as possible.
8.41 The shooting continues: now it’s the turn of the London 2012 Olympic champion Marianne Vos, followed by her national teammate Demi Vollering. The advantage of the three leading players is lowered, but it is still 8’35 ”.
8.39 We recall the names of the three leaders: Anna Kiesenhofer (Austria), Anna Plichta (Poland) and Omer Shapira (Israel).
8.37 And here Annemiek van Vleuten accelerates, but the blue are too far behind.
8.36 Germany and the USA close the gap. Now the race must come to life, otherwise it will be too late.
8.34 Maybe the Dutch Demi Vollering tries. Let’s see if any athletes will react.

8.14 The race could also turn into a race for sprinters, but it is essential to reduce the gap from the fugitives.
8.11 Tactical situation to be understood, a very strange match.
8.08 Even Anna van der Breggen, the very favorite, to increase the pace in the group.
8.04 Compared to what happened yesterday with the men, today the fugitives have a better chance of arriving, if the group does not activate quickly.
8.01 The first effects of the chase can be seen: the group is about to take back the counterattackers, the margin drops below 10 ‘.
7.59 Now it’s time for Holland: Demi Vollering at the head of the group, it is essential to accelerate.
7.56 80 kilometers to the finish line, in about twenty the hardest part of the race will begin.

Welcome to our LIVE LIVE of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic race reserved for women’s cycling online. With his 137 kilometers, the Japanese track that will lead the athletes dal Musashinonomori Park al Fuji International Speedway, presents the beauty of 2692 meters of total elevation gain are really demanding. All on a track that will favor, above all, the Dutch girls; ma Italy is ready to defend itself with its brightest star: Elisa Longo Borghini.
After about 40 kilometers between the plain and a bit of a slight slope, we will begin to climb first gently, and then decisively, towards the first ascent of the day, that is i 4.3 kilometers at 6.1% of Doshi Road GPM. After the brow, there will be no space to breathe: stretch on a slight slope and immediately after the climb to Kagosaka Pass, one a tear of 2.2 kilometers at 4.6%. From there on there will be one descent of about 15 kilometers and another 18 kilometers of plain, with some stretches on a slight slope, to get to the finish line.
The tricolor champion Elisa Longo Borghini will be the undisputed captain of the Italian national team. The 29-year-old from Verbania hopes to be able to climb the podium again in five circles after the bronze medal won in Rio 2016, and she has all the credentials to be a protagonist, given the track that is congenial to her. Elisa will therefore be joined by two promising young people of the caliber of Soraya Paladin e Marta Cavalli, and by a highly experienced athlete such as the former world champion, European and Italian Marta Bastianelli.
Against the blue battleship stands out precisely the dreaded formation of the Netherlands led by the outgoing Olympic champion Anna van der Breggen, the stainless Annemiek van Vleuten, who gave up the Giro Rosa to focus on Olympic preparation, Demi Vollering, and the London 2012 gold medal, the eternal Marianne Vos. Van der Breggen, reigning world champion, has just returned from domination in her fourth Giro Rosa, and is the all-time favorite to win the second consecutive gold medal, which could be the icing on the cake of a simply glorious career that will end. right at the end of this 2021.
So beware of a possible outsider like the British Elizabeth Deignan, fifth in 2016 and silver on the way home in 2012. Let’s move on to the Polish one Katarzyna Niewiadoma, sixth in Rio, but above all in South Africa Ashleigh Moolman, one of the absolute protagonists of the last Giro Rosa where she conquered the second step of the podium and a wonderful stage victory on Monte Matajur; which made us understand his great ambitions on a difficult path like that of Tokyo.
At the same time we also have the Danish Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig, which will have in front of it a track that is decidedly suited to its characteristics. Ultimately we have the Australian lineup of Amanda Spratt, Grace Brown, Sarah Gigante e Tiffany Cromwell, who have all the credentials to make life hard for the dreaded Dutch, and who knows, maybe teaming up with our blue ones.
