Lotte Kopecky got a formidable stage victory at the Giro Rosa.
In the streets of Maddaloni, the Belgian rider was the fastest of the leading group, edging out Lizzie Deignan and Katarzyna Niewiadoma.
At 24, Kopecky won for the first time at the highest level, the Women’s WorldTour.
“The third time was finally the right one! I was starting to get a little impatient after my 2 podiums on the previous stages.
It’s fantastic to finally be able to have a big victory.
After stepping on the podium twice, I knew my condition was more than good, but it's always frustrating not being able to finish the job. "
“The circuit included a pretty difficult hill today.
I was left behind from the front group but finally made it back and felt I had a good chance of winning.
I was second out of the last corner & gave it my all on the paving stones.
I do not yet realize what is happening to me, it is wonderful. "
“I'm aiming for victory in the Belgian championship, but I'm not going to focus on the result.
The Belgian championship is always a special race.
You can imagine all the possible scenarios, the course will always be different.
I will give the best of myself and maybe I will leave with the tricolor jersey. "
