Sarah Gigante took her first victory in Movistar colors at Emakumeen Nafarroako. The Australian was the strongest on the day’s challenging route that included eight ascents and soloed to the win in Iruzun. Veronica Ewers (EF Education-TIBCO-SVB) finished second and Paula Patiño in third, giving Movistar two riders on the podium.

“It’s absolutely amazing. I’m in shock, it’s crazy. I’ve never been in the top-10 of a European race, so making my first top-ten a victory is amazing,” Gigante said. “The whole team was so, so awesome. Paula, obviously, coming in 3rd was so good, but she made it even better by helping so much, chasing everyone behind so they didn’t bridge back.
