Marianne Vos wins stage seven of Giro Rosa in Italy

Vos won her fourth stage of the race

Dutch cyclist Marianne Vos claimed her fourth stage victory in the Giro Rosa and extended her lead in the overall race.

The Rabo-Liv rider beat Wiggle Honda's Giorgia Bronzini and Emma Johansson of Orica GreenEdge in a bunch sprint at the end of the 92km seventh stage.

She now has a 54 second advantage with two stages remaining.

Britain's Emma Pooley, riding for Lotto Belisol, leads the mountain classification by five points.

Before the riders arrived at the finish there was a minor drama as the United Healthcare team bus got stuck under the finishing line arch. It was a scene very similar to the first stage of the 2013 Tour de France when the Orica GreenEdge bus crashed into the gantry.
