by | Jul 12, 2021

South African Olympic-bound cyclist, Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio, is in high spirits after claiming her maiden stage triumph at Giro d’Italia Donne on Saturday, 10 July 2021.

The 35-year-old took to Instagram to share her excitement, saying: “Finally a stage win Giro Italia Donne on the Queen stage! It’s taken 10 years … but it was definitely worth the wait! Feels so amazing and I certainly couldn’t have done it without the amazing support from my family, team, sponsors, coach, rocacorbacycling team, my fans, my country and of course my carlpasio

Moolman-Pasio clocked 3hr 52min 35sec for the 122.6km ninth stage from Feletto-Umberto to Monte Matajur, which contained two late steep climbs, to win by 1min 26sec over her SD Worx teammates Demi Vollering and Anna van der Breggen.

This victory comes as a motivation for Moolman-Pasio who will be aiming to end SA’s 65-year Olympic cycling medal drought at the Tokyo Games later this month.

She is also expected to compete in the road race on July 25 and the time trial on July 28.
