The success continues for Team VIRTU Cycling! 

After an amazing start of the season, we are beyond exited to be able to announce our first Women’s World Tour win with Marta Bastianelli crossing the finish line as the first rider in Ronde van Drenthe this weekend!

It was a very hard race with brutal conditions and teams bringing the best of the best to compete. The race was very dynamic, splitting multiple times, regrouping, and splitting again. Marta came away with the win from a small elite group with two other riders, out-sprinting them to the finish line.  

Marta not only takes the win but also the Women’s World Tour Leaders Jersey. This is the first time the team has had a Women’s World Tour win, which was a big goal for this season. 

 

Furthermore, we are happy to announce that Sofia Bertizzolo was awarded the young riders World Tour Leaders Jersey.

The team continues to put in a huge team effort supporting one another to get these great results.

We are happy and proud to be able to give our partners and sponsors a continued great season – and we look forward to seeing what the rest of the season brings.
