17th Fantagiro – Stage 3

The Flash report published yesterday has to be changed.

Viviani was penalized for changing route during the sprint damaging Moschetti and Viviani has therefore been relegated to 73rd (last of his group)

Stage Results:

  • 1st Fernando Gaviria
  • 2nd Arnaud DÉMARE
  • 3rd Pascal ACKERMANN

Stage Comments:

Tao Geoghegan Hart (Ineos) lost 1:28 due to a double crash during the stage

The penalisation of Viviani has several negative impacts:

  1. Gaviria is very upset (no picture with his arms raised for him)
  2. Viviani is very upset
  3. I am very upset because i had to rewrite classification
  4. the rest of the world is very upset because we will be forced to see again the Viviani’s jersey – the ugliest national champion jersey ever seen

We will all be wishing for Viviani to win some stages so that he can move into the Cyclamin (points) jersey and we are not forced to see his terrible jersey again


Stage won by a tandem of Joeren Vandeput‘s Molteni and Claudio Mandressi‘s Pedalemolle team

Joeren Vandeput Takes the pink jersey off Alessio’s Shoulders and is now leading by only 2 points on a bunch of 3 followers: Massimiliano Cividini‘s Scappati di Casa, Claudio Mandressi‘s Pedalemolle team, and Alessio Ciardi‘s Atletico Lasonil

The Mountains:

Again Marco Viganò’s KOM team is winning the stage and extending his lead… but the real mountains are still to come. Will he be the King of Mountains at the end of the giro as his team (KOM) promises?
