4.09 Today it will be up to the elite women to compete for the world title in Wollongong, Australia.

4.05 Friends of OA Sport, cycling enthusiasts, good morning to everyone and everyone! We are ready to live together the women’s elite test of the World Cup in Wollongong 2022!

Good evening everyone and welcome to LIVE LIVE of the elite women’s online test of the women’s cycling world stage in Wollongong, Australia. The rainbow jersey will be awarded tonight, in a rather hard course of almost 165 kilometers, favorable to those who know how to move well uphill.

After a first stretch of a fairly easy line of 28 kilometers, the group will face the tear of the Mount Keira, 6500 meters at 6.2% average gradient; it could be the ramp that will start the escape that will characterize the day. You then enter the final circuit, to be repeated six times, with the climb of Mount Pleasant, which will also touch the 14% maximum gradient.

Italy will try to play its cards, also in function of the precarious conditions of the favorite number one Annemiek Van Vleuten, fell during the time trial and left the hospital with an elbow fracture. But after all, the blue can not hide when they have at their disposal reigning champion Elisa Balsamo, nine victories for her this season. With the rank of co-captain there is also Elisa Longo Borghini, capable of exalting herself in the big events, while Silvia Persico also deserves special attention after the excellent season played.

The women’s elite online trial of the World Cycling Championships will begin at 4.25 am; OA Sport will follow the event with LIVE LIVE from the race, so as not to miss a single pedal stroke. GOOD FUN!
