Elise Chabbey overcomes crash to take Giro d’Italia Donne mountains jersey lead


Elise Chabbey (Canyon-SRAM) overcame an early-race crash to take fourth place and the overall lead in the mountains classification on stage 3 at the Giro d’Italia Donne. The Swiss rider was part of a decisive breakaway that gained more than three minutes on the main field, which also launched her into fourth place in the overall classification behind Anna van der Breggen (SD Worx).

“Mikayla [Harvey] had just attacked on one of the climbs. I countered just near the top and kept going as it went into the downhill. At that point we were in three: myself, Lucinda Brand and Liane Lippert, but my back wheel slipped out on one of the corners and I came down,” Chabbey said of the accident.
