The 32-year-old Education First rider accelerated on the final kilometre on a steep climb up to the Superga Basilica overlooking Turin, to finish in 4hr 03min 48sec.

Spanish former world champion Alejandro Valverde of the Movistar Team was close behind in second, with Mitchelton-Scott's Adam Yates five seconds adrift after the 179km run from Magenta, north of Milan.

Tour de France champion Egan Bernal finished in sixth position, 10 seconds behind the leaders.

"Any time you can beat Valverde is a special time," said Woods. "I was fortunate to have a very strong team today. I maybe attacked a bit too much but I wanted to be offensive and I'm glad it worked out."

It was a first victory of the year for Woods, who finished second behind Slovenian Primoz Roglic in the Giro dell'Emilia last weekend.

The Italian classic races continue on Thursday the 103rd edition of the Gran Piemonte, before the Tour of Lombardy, the fifth and final 'Monument' of the season, on Saturday.

A History Of Inspiring Women Cyclists

Back in the 19th century, bicycles were initially designed and developed strictly for men. However, after some time and perseverance, strong-willed ladies decided to take the reins — or handlebars in this case. On a much deeper level, bicycles represented freedom and change for women. It altered the way they could live, travel without chaperones or permission, the way they dressed, and ultimately the way they viewed themselves.
