13.03 Here is Bertinoro’s flying finish line.

13.00 Before the start of the climb we will pass the flying finish line of Bertinoro.

12.58 Brausse, already leader of the ranking of female climbers, having taken the lead on the only GPM so far, can go hunting for other points.

12.56 5 km at the start of the first GPM of the day.

12.53 Already 20 ”of advantage for the German.

12.50 Ceratizit unleashed! After Teutenberg’s attempt and Vieceli’s extension, try to attack Franziska Brausse alone!

12.47 Just over 10 km to go before the start of the Bertinoro climb. Classified as a 3rd category GPM, it measures 4 km and has an average gradient of 4.5%.

12.44 At km 22 the group is therefore compact again. Very high speed in this first part of the stage.

12.43 Acceleration in the group, Lara Vieceli reabsorbed.

12.40 Now Vieceli’s advantage rises to 20 ”.

12.38 After the first 20 km, there are 100 to the finish.

12.32 An athlete has now left the group and is trying to take advantage. This is Lara Vieceli, already seen in the attack in recent days.

12.29 The situation does not change while leaving the province of Cesena to enter that of Ravenna

12.26 We are still traveling very fast. The group is still compact.

12.23 Still no escape when the first 10 km have been covered. After Teutenberg, other athletes from Ceratizit also attempted the extension.

12.21 Now the pace in the group is very high. As long as you go this fast it will be difficult to hit an escape.

12.19 Among the most active is the German Lea Lin Teutenberg (Ceratizit-WNT Pro Cycling), grandson of the great Ina-Yoko Teutenberg.

12.17 For now, however, none have managed to really take advantage. The shots continue.

12.15 Already several escape attempts. It seems that many are tempted to attempt the attack from afar.


12.10 Today’s track will see the first 35 km completely flat before tackling the three GPMs of Bertinoro, Barbotto and Monteleone on some of the roads made famous by the Nove Colli.

12.08 We remind you that Elisa Balsamo wears the Maglia Rosa as leader of the general. The World Champion would also be the leader of the points classification but today the jersey is on the shoulders of Marianne Vos.

12.06 After the initial time trial and two sprinter stages, today the athletes will face the first climbs in the 120 km scheduled.

12.03 The first rides have already started from the group heading towards km 0 and the official start of the fraction.

12.00 Friends of OA Sport, good morning and welcome to LIVE LIVE of the fourth stage of the Giro d’Italia Women 2022!

Friends of OA Sport, good morning and welcome to LIVE LIVE of the fourth stage of the Giro d’Italia Women 2022! Leaving Sardinia, after the rest day, it is time for the group to resume pedaling. It starts from Romagna and in particular from the cities of Cesena which will host the departure and arrival today.

After the short initial time trial and two rather easy stages, today’s route includes the first ascents of this edition. In the 120.9 km scheduled for today, 3 GPMs will be distributed, two of the 3rd category and one of the 2nd. After 35 km completely flat we will start with the Bertinoro climb, starter of a treacherous stage finish.

The hardest ascent will be that of Colle del Barbotto, with its 4400 meters at 8.3% average gradient. It will end with the tear of Monteleone and that of Carpineta, not classified as GPM but still very demanding. The very fast final will come after a long stretch of descent.

Elisa Balsamo starts again in the Maglia Rosa, splendid leader of this race that today will probably have to try to defend herself. Difficult to identify a favorite because the terrain lends itself to different interpretations, but our Elisa Longo Borghini and Marta Cavalli will be able to be found ready. Departure from Cesena scheduled at 12.00, we at OA Sport will tell you every moment of the fraction with live and real-time updates. Do not miss!
