A little diversion into Slovenia, maybe hoping for a visit of Roglic and Pogacar next year….
A mountain stage with no particular heights (the peak was slightly above 1140 meter and the arrival at 612 meters.
Nevertheless, Koen BOUWMAN won his second stage from a breakaway ahead of Mauro SCHMID and Alessandro TONELLI.
BOUWMAN wins with the mountain (Blue) Jersey. the first dutchman to wear this in the history of giro. A deserved win for the leader in the mountains
The arrival had a sharp turn with 50 meters to go and Andrea VENDRAME who was ready to sprint but was closed to the fences
Nothing happened in the GC and all the bullets are left for the last mountain stage on the Marmolada
An important abandon by ALMEIDA for Covid
Angela GRANOLI’s Giro GirANdo wins the stage
Angela had Vendrame on her team and was ready to celebrate with him but in the end was captured in the corner. A well deserved victory for Angela, with some additional distance to the monkey
Two more stages to go (+ bonus stage) , the game is still open with 6 teams in less than 50 points:
- The queen stage (Marmolada)
- A Time Trial in Verona
- A Bonus for GC
Still some shuffle possible
Angela GRANOLI’s Giro GirANdo wins also the mountain stage.
Lots of points on the table today before we get to the final classification
