Vos Wins 2010 Trofeo Alfredo Binda in Cittiglio

"La cannibale", Marianne Vos (NED-Rabobank), gave an encore performance on via Valcuvia in Cittiglio on a sunny Spring day to win the Trofeo Alfredo Binda, the first women's first World Cup race of 2010. Only a few weeks ago Vos also won the women's cyclo-cross world title.

"I am happy to repeat the success here at Cittiglio", said Vos happy after the race. "Today, I have had very strong opponents, large and enthusiastic crowds, and it was exciting to again raise my arms in victory."

"More than that I just could not do", said Noemi Cantele, the first of the Italians in fifth overall. "I had four sprinters with me so I am still happy with my result."
