18th fantaGiro – stage 13 – Shock the monkey

It was supposed to be a flat stage for sprinters but something happened

The Stage

Arrival at Monselice that despite the name is not a mountain but on the flat between Padova and Rovigo.

And we expected the group to go flat to a sprint, with two minor climbs in the last 30 KMs

But Sagan first and Ulissi then decided to shock the monkey and distance Demare out. It worked out for Ulissi but not for Sagan

The group split into 3 groups, Demare in the third, Sagan in the second and Ulissi in the first group

The first group of about 20 man had all the top 10 and Ulissi.

Diego ULISSI launched a long sprint and won easy… well, not so easy with Pink Jersey Joad ALMEIDA fighting to the line and taking second with time bonus. Third was Patrick KONRAD

Second victory this year for ULISSI and 8th of his career at the giro


Fantasy Giro

For the second day in a row, our Rookie Einypw’s Team Pie wins a stage climbing to 9th place overall

On the top we have now a tandem of Alessandro Roggiani’s RENZ Pro Team and Rene van Noort’s CARPE DIEM II, who lead by a bunch of points on davide guarisco’s Pro Secco Cycling Team and Matteo Canali’s Pizzoccheromania
