Erić lead out an attack from AVV, and she, García and Cavalli were instantly alone.
Jelena Erić is another one having an under the radar really strong season. It's just not the kind that will be picked up on CQ or PCS. She's like Movistar's Audrey Cordon-Ragot, she can just be plugged in as a helper in any role and do well at it, from leading out Norsgaard or Sierra for a sprint, to unleashing van Vleuten or Patiño on a climb. As the GP Ciudad de Eibar showed, she can definitely climb, finishing with Santestebán and Mavi García in a race finishing at Arrate, and the stage of the Ruta del Sol she won had the 7,4km @ 7,5% Gaucín climb in the middle and a puncheur climb just 5km from the line.

If she was male, Unzué would have locked her up to a ten year deal, she's precisely the kind of rider he loves.

Yeah Erić is a great teammate. She and Biannic are crucial to their success.

Cavalli is putting up a great fight.
 
Some suffering going on in the HOS group at the moment. Cavalli is trimming this down big time.

Edit: Marta dropped, Brodie Chapman dropping back and doing her job for FDJ. Dani Rowe absolutely cooing with delight about a piece of basic domestique work as Brodie pulls Cavalli for a hundred metres and gives her a bottle as her leader passes.
