Barbara Guarischi fifth on final stage of Tour of Chongming Island

Team VIRTU Cycling Women´s Barbara Guarischi finished 5th in today´s third stage of the Chinese stage race, Tour of Chongming Island where Kirsten Wild conquered the top step of the podium.

The stage took place on a circuit of 11.5 kilometers, which was to be completed 11 times for a total of 121.5 kilometers and naturally and as expected, a number of different riders launched furious attacks from the bunch in order to prevent the however inevitable bunch sprint.

Team VIRTU Cycling Women lead out their Italian sprinter and Guarischi did what she could to reach the finish line first of all but had to settle with fifth position.

The race was won by Charlotte Becker from Hitec Products-Birk sport.
