2022 - 47th Trofeo Alfredo Binda - Comune di Cittiglio (1.WWT)

Come on, guys! Surely this race deserves a thread!







Startlist for Trofeo Alfredo Binda - Comune di Cittiglio 2022 (procyclingstats.com)
Trofeo Binda is both a long lasting and historic race, but also one of the few that neither Van Vleuten nor Van der Breggen has ever won. And that won't change this year. Four time winner Marianne Vos was on the initial startlist, but has pulled out due to a cold.

Instead Trek looks like the team to beat with defending champion Elisa Longo Borghini and world champion Elisa Balsamo as leaders of a strong lineup. Question is if we'll see another solo victory or if it will be decided in a sprint in a smaller group this time.

With 400 WWT points on offer to the winner, Balsamo has a chance of overtaking Lotte Kopecky, while Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio can get on equal points with the Belgian, if she's the first to cross the line.

Shirin van Anrooij can regain the lead in the WWT youth classification, but Niamh Fisher-Black, Femke Gerritse and Julia Borgström also have the opportunity to wear the blue jersey after the race. Due to the weird rules, even someone on 0 points, like Sarah Gigante, might end up in the lead.
