The Twin couple of Giacomo Salmoiraghi and Edward Caley win another stage, but this time not alone as they are joined by Augusto Sansoni’s “Chianti Cycling Team 2018”

Atletico Lasonil is in the lead again

On the back end, Massimiliano Cividini continues to hold on to his black jersey.

Note of (de) merit to Beatrice Andreola’s “Pere Pere Team” who seeked for the expert advise with Mattia and is now second last.

Beatrice, next time choose your riders alone…..


Veteran Andrea Munisso’s “INSOMNIA” take the stage. Andrea is one of the few to be in competition since 16 years and deserves a spot in the annals of this game

Leadership still on Giacomo Salmoiraghi who earned a few points on stage 5 and is holding to that to keep his lead


Today rest day
