On Sunday, Magdeleine Vallières Mill took her inaugural professional victory on Sunday with a precisely executed attack at Trofeo Palma. The win was the second in two days for her team, making a remarkable debut of the recently formed EF Education-Cannondale team.
The day before saw Noemi Rüegg emerge victorious in the bunch sprint at Trofeo Felanitx-Colònia de Sant Jordi. Both events are part of the Challenge Mallorca Femenina, a series featuring three consecutive one-day races in Spain.
