Good luck in Luxembourg, Emma!
"It’s been a big week for women’s racing news - good and bad. We’ve seen some fantastic racing in Italy, with Rabobank and Specialized-lululemon dominating the competitions: Marianne Vos winning the Festival Luxembourgeois Elsy Jacobs and Evelyn Stevens winning Gracia-Orlová in the Czech Republic - but we’ve also seen the Tour of Languedoc-Roussillon cancelled, and just today, it’s been announced that the Giro Trentino has been reduced from three to two dates."
