21th Fantasy Giro D’Italia – 2023 – Stage 10 – results

I am a little in delay with comments on the Giro, so here we go:

GRAND SLAM:

Magnus Cort Nielsen won the stage, now he is joingin the club of winners of stages on all 3 tours (106th rider)

NEW GLASSES FOR THE EF EDUCATION DESIGNER:

Did you see that Jersey? Year over year EF Education show terrible cycling jerseys. They even call these special editions for the Giro…. but every year they place a couple of riders in breakaways and stage victories so that we are forced to look at them.

FAMILY AFFAIRS

Davide BAIS won a stage on friday. His brother Mattia was on the attack on saturday and ended the stage 6th.

YOU CAN’T DO THAT

Remco Evenepoel won the TT stage on sunday…. and a few minutes later he abandoned for positive covid test. He was clearly out of shape, he won by only 1 second….

Possible reasons:

  • He has covid (really)
  • He was not top performing and shamelessly abandoned before the mountains
  • He was positive….
  • He honoured his contract to be present for 10 stages and that’s it
  • He is ready for the Tour

ABANDONING THE RACE

To give you a hint, only 2 pink jersey were (forced to) abandon: Merckx (he is always, anyway the previous case) in 1969 and Pantani in 1999

The GC is reshaped now with 3 riders in 6 seconds and Geraint THOMAS in Pink

Lots of other guys abandoned, most notably Pozzovivo, Vlasov and Uran

Full Points

Every year a few teams reach the outstanding result of bringing all 15 riders to score at least one point. Generally this happens in the final stages of the Giro.

This year it happened as early as stage 7 for two teams:

  • daniele Pontiggia Pippero
  • Alessandro Roggiani RENZ Team

Another bunch of people acquired this result on stage 10

  • Andrea Puricelli Business Suppost

  • Einypw Team Pie
  • Elena Mauro Elena’s Team
