Amanda Spratt: Finding the podium again at the Giro d’Italia Donne


Last year’s Giro d’Italia Donne is probably one Amanda Spratt (Team BikeExchange) would like to forget. After two years of stepping up onto the podium, all while supporting the race winner, she walked away with an injured shoulder, concussion and more than just her goals for that race in tatters. The Australian rider’s injuries meant that hopes of shifting up the podium steps at World Championships, on a course that suited, disappeared as well, along with much of the rest of her season. 

All in all, 2020 was a year that promised so much for Spratt – between Olympics, Worlds and the Giro d’Italia Donne – but delivered little. Expectations of top performances shelved, the aim to race again before 2020 as a team helper became enough – which she managed to do at the Tour of Flanders – as there was no time for looking back.
