Giro Donne: Stage 7 debrief

Marianne Vos - the best cyclist in the world ?
Another triumph for the truly remarkable Marianne Vos, which rather begs the question: is it time we stopped referring to the 24-year-old Dutch champion as "the best female cyclist in the world" and instead just called her "the best cyclist in the world" from now on? Watching Vos is like watching Hinault and Merckx rolled into one - she can do literally everything better than anything else. We're out of time for today, but as usual Podium Cafe have the best write-up on the race.

1.   Marianne Vos (Netherlands) 03:39:00
