The fourth Giro della Donna took place in heavy rain, but that didn’t seem to bother any of the participants.

Cycling Tips’ photographer Paul Spurlo captured some of the beautiful faces contorted from the pain of the effort, stained with sweat and the road grime of Acheron Way, but the results are beautiful nonetheless!

Once again, we provided the official Cycling Tips Giro della Donna kit and saw plenty of riders and teams wearing their own CUORE of Switzerland kits in addition to it. Treat yourself and see the huge gallery of portrait shots on Cycling Tips’ official Facebook page.
