Giro D’Italia 2018 – Stage 06

First Mountain stage and we have a couple of athletes from Mitchelton-Scott make a 1-2

Esteban Chaves takes a long breakaway and resist to win the stage. His teammate Simon Yates reaches him 500 meters from the line but leaves him victory. Yates also takes Pink Jersey.

Aru and Froome struggle but manage to get to the arrival with the other GC contenders


We have 5 teams taking 118 point:

  • Alessio Ciardi’s “Atletico Lasonil” — Alessio, your Lasonil seems to work: Alessio also takes leadership and Pink Jersey in the Giro
  • Joeren Vandeput’s “Molteni” – We all remember Merckx running with this jersey, you are now third overall
  • Antonio Fusi’s “Stella Rossa Firenze Ciclisti Proletari” – We are ready for your roller coaster Antonio
  • Edward Caley’s “Chris Froom is innocent” – Second stage victory for Ed
  • Giacomo Salmoiraghi’s “GS Stelvio Team” – Giacomo seems to be a rookie to watch

Black Jersey

  • Stefano Bernasconi is Last, but only 10 points from Beatrice Andreola’s “Pere Pere Team”
  • Mario Bisicchia has found himself after the desert and slowly climbing


  • A lot of teams scored points but in similar way to GC result.
  • Leadership is still on Giacomo Salmoiraghi’s shoulders

Special Price

We have two teams that have scored points with all riders. This has never happened so early in the Giro.

Congratulations to:

  • Alessio Ciardi’s “Atletico Lasonil”
  • Claudio Ceni’s “Como C’enno”

Final Note

One final note: Alessandro Mariani asked to change the name of his team, back to VanPoppeDaPaura

we all prefer this name and we accept the change
