pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_map.jpg



Un cordiale saluto a tutti - we're back in Imola, where pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Mathieu van der Poel won the 11th stage of this 2020 Giro d'Italia yesterday. The race takes off from here for what will be this year's last chance for the puncheurs already!

Unlike yesterday, we'll have completely flat two thirds of the race first, whereas all the difficulties await us in the final part - including an uphill finish.

From Imola, we'll head pretty much straight north, by-passing Ferrara and Rovigo as the largest cities along the course. Towards the end of the long flat roads, in Solesino, after 107km, we'll have today's intermediate sprint, before hitting some hills once again.

First on the list will be the climb up to Castelnuovo, a category 4 hill, whose top will be reached after 133.7km. The toughest uphill section will however be the next one, as we'll see a category 3 KoM sprint in Crosara.

From there, only 26 kilometers will be remaining - including another (uncategorized) hill climb to Perarolo, however. After the descent, flat roads will lead us into today's arrival location, Vicenza. This city of slightly more than 100,000 inhabitants is an important commercial centre, whereof jewelry is the most important domain. About a fifth of Italy's gold and jewelry is produced here. But besides of precious stones, you can as well see old ones - many of them built by famous architect Andrea Palladio (which is why the city's surname is "City of Palladio").

However, the monument that we'll take the closest look at hasn't been built by him. The Basilica Santa Maria is right on top of Monte Berico - where we'll have today's finish line! It's a short yet steep climb - really made for the guys with a lot of punch! Let's see if they'll really get to fight for the stage win up there, or if the breakaway takes it once again! Furthermore, the final ascent has been classified as a category 4 climb, offering some minor KoM points for the stage winner, as well as the usual 30 points for the points standings in hilly stages.

The bookmakers list once again - probably for the last time - the puncheurs on top of their stage favorites ranking. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare - once again - come out on top, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Vakoc, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Boswell and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Izagirre. The one-star group then mainly contains hybrid racers, with the exception of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom, as they name pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Talansky and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arndt. Again, two pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Generali and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Team Puma - SAP riders each.

Let's see if pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak can finally make up a bit of that handicap from stage 4 - if he really wants to have a shot at the GC win, he'll have to step up his game soon!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_01.jpg

It's another cloudy day, but again without a lot of wind. The riders are ready, we are, too - let's go!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_02.jpg

As soon as the race starts, the rain does the same. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kneisky and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett don't care und just attack anyway.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_03.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk wants to make up for yesterday's bad performance and goes into the attack as well - followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman, whose target will surely be to finally get the KoM jersey he narrowly missed out on yesterday.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_04.jpg

Attacking next is Austrian duo pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Schönberger and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartner.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_05.jpg

But the breakaway attempts don't stop there, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Mraouni, ever-aggressive pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Fedeli, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Cosnefroy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Coppel trying as well. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Sagiv isn't too happy.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_06.jpg

And he simply follows the next attacker pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Bugge to catch up with all these last few riders. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kneisky, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartner and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Schönberger remain up front.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_07.jpg

But pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Bugge then tries again, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Fedeli. How will the pack respond this time?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_08.jpg

Not at all yet. We again have a trio of blue attackers from three different teams: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Edet and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Cosnefroy. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Turek tries to close the small gap.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_09.jpg

But it's still not over: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Van Zandbeek, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo are trying to escape as well! How many does that make in total?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_10.jpg

We'll probably soon have a better overview, as the attacks and the pack's chasing have both stopped. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Eislers sets a rather slow pace. Understandably, as that rain surely isn't very motivating. However, we can already see some shadows on the road - hopefully the rain stops soon!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_11.jpg

Well, it hasn't stopped so far. But the escapees have now regrouped, as we have our Breakaway of the Day, leading already by three minutes. So let's once again take a look at the 16 guys who are up front - or at least at the stronger ones.

Just as yesterday, the best puncheurs in this group are pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom, who were part of the successful breakaway - but definitely weren't happy with 4th and 6th. Today's finish should suit them better, as it's uphill!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk is a strong puncheur as well, and he's even better rounded than the two former, just like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Schönberger is at a slightly lower level. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Edet will probably be here to help pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom.

Then, we have climber pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero, who has been very disappointing so far - and who doesn't like the hills that much. A slightly weaker climber, but much stronger puncheur than him is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman, who just missed out on yesterday's stage win and will finally want to take over the KoM lead today. He's trailing by just 3 points in the KoM standing.

With pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Bugge and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman has two strong helpers (who both already have a stage win to their name) by his side, whereas pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Cosnefroy - the 4th rider having been in yesterday's successful breakaway - will try to support pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartner.

None of these riders should be a big danger for the GC contenders; pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy is currently ranked highest in 33rd place, more than 18 minutes down. Which is six minutes and more behind most GC favorites.

Finally, let's get an overview of the whole group:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Romanpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Buggepcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartnerpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Cosnefroypcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrompcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Edet
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Schönbergerpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Turek
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Fedeli
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kneisky
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Van Zandbeek



pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_12.jpg

We can pretty quickly observe that not all riders are working in the group - which is justified, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo works for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Isostar, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Turek for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Moser, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Edet for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Air France and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Cosnefroy for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grieg. Which in turn means that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartner, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Schönberger, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Bugge can take it easy for the time being.

The peloton's deficit has gone up to four minutes now, with 150 kilometers to go. About 70 kilometers to the intermediate sprint.

And some good news: the rain has stopped!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_13.jpg

In the peloton, the puncheurs are trying to find a good position already now. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Izagirre and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Boswell are as far ahead in the pack as almost never before, which hopefully is a good sign for them.

Setting the pace are currently pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Garcia Cortina, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Van Poppel, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Sagiv, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Eislers, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Van Winden, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png O'Shea, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Dal Col, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Zhao, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Fominykh and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Castrillo - most of whom are definitely no slouches on the flat! They will try to keep the escapees at bay and then reel them in before it's too late - for once. If they will succeed is a different question...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_14.jpg

At least the tempo riding in the pack has some effect, as the breakaway's lead is down to 3 minutes with 110km to go. Still almost 30 kilometers until the intermediate sprint - and about 50km until the foot of the first hill!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_15.jpg

The same riders are still working in the peloton, setting a good pace, but no horrendous one, given the shape of the bunch.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_16.jpg

Puncture by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Schleck! Fortunately, it's still pretty early in the race, and the pace isn't too high yet. Still, let's hope that the energy he'll need to catch up won't be missing in the finale!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_17.jpg

But pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png EA Vesuvio react immediately and send back pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Jungels, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Girdlestone and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Afewerki to bring pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Schleck back as quickly as possible. Which they do. Still, it took pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Schleck almost 10 kilometers to catch up, whereof he was riding some on his own. He should have enough time to recover until the hills, though.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_18.jpg

Once more, the breakaway riders show absolutely no interest in the intermediate sprint points, so they are pretty randomly distributed like this:

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk - 10 (16)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero - 6 (6)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Turek - 4 (14)
4. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy - 2 (25)
5. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo - 1 (41)


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_19.jpg

Maglia Bianca pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Budenieks leads the peloton over the sprint line 2'53" later. 80 kilometers still to go, about 20 until the first climb starts!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_20.jpg

The gradients of the Castelnuovo ascent (4th category) are pretty constant throughout, hovering around or slightly above 5%. There's a short breather in the middle and the climb flattens out towards the top, hopefully providing the perfect terrain for a tense sprint!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_21.jpg

Five kilometers of climbing to go for the escapees. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman needs to cross the line on top first to definitely take over the KoM lead, or in second position to catch up with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Vakoc.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_22.jpg

The peloton has still been riding slightly faster than the breakaway on the last couple of kilometers, cutting down the deficit to 2'24" by the foot of the hill. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Mullen is setting the pace for the climb, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Sagiv ready to take over.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_23.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk launches the sprint with 1.2km to go! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Van Zandbeek and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kneisky jump to his wheel, whereas pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman has to make up some ground!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_24.jpg

And the Serb does so like a champion, overtaking all the riders up front and winning this sprint!

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman - 5 (36)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk - 3 (3)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero - 1 (1)

With this result, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman outscores pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Vakoc by two points and takes the provisional Maglia Azzurra! Can the Czech strike back later in the stage - or at the finish line?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_25.jpg

We had several riders not participating in the sprint - and these six now have a 23" gap to close: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Schönberger, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Turek, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartner, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Cosnefroy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Edet, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Bugge and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett seem to have done their work and are even further back.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_26.jpg

The three aforementioned riders are actually already within the peloton's field of view as they cross the line on top. 1'52" for them, 2'19" for the pack led by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Sagiv.

In the meantime, the usual suspects have lost contact with the peloton, but with just a bit more than 50 kilometers to go, there isn't much risk for them to miss the time limit.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_27.jpg

However, there's another split in the peloton, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki being on the wrong side of it once again! He seems to start feeling his legs, as this has happened quite some times lately!

Although this second group can close the gap quite easily this time, the question is whether the Pole can keep up on the next tough climb...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_28.jpg

While pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Edet, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Bugge and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett have been swallowed by the pack, the two groups up front haven't merged yet. Which must cost them some more energy than it would had the first group just waited. Or won't they even regroup?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_29.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Team Puma - SAP surprisingly seem to have chosen pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arndt to be their leader today, given that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare is now helping out with the chase! Which is rather strange, given that the Frenchman is stronger on the hills and he's one of the world's best sprinters! Hopefully for them, this choice will pay out...

It does in what concerns the pack's deficit so far, as it's down to 1'48". 36km to go for the escapees.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_30.jpg

Just in time before the next hill climb starts, the two groups up front have re-united. So the following 13 riders are left up front:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Romanpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Schönbergerpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Turek
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartnerpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Cosnefroy
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Fedeli
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kneisky
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Van Zandbeek



pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_31.jpg

Let's take a look at the profile of said hill - it's a tough one, as we already mentioned! The first 2.5km have an average slope of more than 10%, even reaching 14% at times! The last 1.7km are "just" around 5%, but those who already have sore legs now will definitely struggle to hold on!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_32.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk doesn't want to lose any time, as he attacks as soon as the road starts going up! The approaching peloton surely pushed him to go all in already now - but can that work out?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_33.jpg

With pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Cavagna leading the pack, the breakaway definitely has to hurry up, as the speed in the peloton will likely be pretty high on this climb! Fasten your seatbelts, we're taking off!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_34.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk's attack wasn't successful, and so it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman launching the next one with still almost 3km of climbing left! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk takes his wheel, followed by flat specialist pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kneisky!

The peloton trails only by 1'19", with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Cavagna definitely pushing seriously now!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_35.jpg

It had to be expected that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kneisky eventually has to let go of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman, putting those behind him in a really difficult situation! Can anyone catch up with the leading duo?

Two kilometers of climbing left, as we're leaving the steepest sections behind!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_36.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Cavagna is taking a short break, as it's now pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych pulling the pack uphill. The breakaway is almost over for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Turek and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Van Zandbeek, who were the first two riders to be dropped up front on this climb. But pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Fedeli just had to let go as well, he's right ahead of the blue car. It's not looking great for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo, either, who have a small gap as well.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_37.jpg

Up front, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman simply rides away from pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk and takes maximum points in Crosara as well, securing the Maglia Azzurra for at least three days, as there's no KoM sprint on the next two days!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk comes 2nd - but where's the rest?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_38.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartner has left the others behind - where "others" here means:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Schönbergerpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthypcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Fedeli is about to be caught by the pack, whereas pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartner indeed takes the final points on top of the 3rd category sprint:

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman - 6 (42)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk - 4 (7)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartner - 2 (2)

Which means that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman extends his lead to 8 points - only 5 are available at the finish line. Well done!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_39.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Conti leads the peloton over the top - and the group ahead has broken up on the final meters of the climb! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Cosnefroy is almost caught already, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kneisky just a few more meters ahead. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Schönberger are closing in on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartner again.

The pack has again lost some speed towards the top, trailing pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman by two minutes now. 26 kilometers to go - including the climb to Perarolo, which is pretty steep as well!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_40.jpg

Uh-oh, this doesn't look great for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh today! He has just missed out on a split and absolutely needs to make up some ground before the next hill if he doesn't want to lose his good GC position!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_41.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Campero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Schönberger are caught right now, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grossschartner only a few meters ahead! Which means that we only have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk left up front, separated by about 30"! The peloton still trails the leader by about 2 minutes!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_42.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki has once again been caught behind, and so 2nd overall pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kruijswijk has to close the gap for him! Can he yo-yo back to the front? And what will then happen on the last hill?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Ji and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Anacona both are in this group as well - together with their lead puncheur pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Vakoc!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/mg20_giro_logo.jpg

Stage 12 / 21: Hilly, 15.4km

Imola - Vicenza (Monte Berico)

Part 2 / 2



pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_43.jpg

20 kilometers to go for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk! There's still a 25" gap separating them, with the pack trailing by 2'09"! Will they actually have a shot at the stage win? The next hill will probably decide!

By the way, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki makes it back to the pack just under this 20km arc!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_44.jpg

For the moment, we only have slopes of about 5% - which was enough to make pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk crack! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman rides away and already has a minute on the South African! The peloton's deficit is 1'54" - let's see if they hammer up this hill or if they once again slow down in the decisive moments of the stage!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_45.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Conti and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Vosekalns are leading the bunch into this ascent, with all the top puncheurs and GC contenders well positioned - especially pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe, who's already in 6th position!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_46.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal sets an end to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk's escape. It's not his Giro so far...

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman is still 1'30" ahead, but now on the steeper slopes - around 8% - the advantages is shrinking pretty fast! On the other hand, he has almost reached the top!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_47.jpg

But now, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare takes over in the pack, making the pace go up instantly - and the gap go down the drain, or washed away by the rain that has come back! Only 32" remaining as the peloton rides over the top!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_48.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare is still pushing like crazy up front - has he not been informed that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arndt was left behind on that climb? Or do they now go all-in for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Mager, who's still up front?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kruijswijk, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Vakoc, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy - all are in this group as well!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_49.jpg

But it's even worse for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png eBuddy's GC captain pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Aru, who's one group further behind! Can they catch up again with the leaders? Will pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare finally stop chasing? Can pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman hold on to the win?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_50.jpg

10 kilometers remaining, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman is about in the middle of the downhill! Two more kilometers of descending, followed by a false flat and the final uphill section to the finish line!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare is not relenting however, cutting back the gap second by second!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_51.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Fernandes has definitely chosen the worst possible moment for a puncture! What a bummer for the Portuguese, who kept up with the front group all the way - until now...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_52.jpg

With 5 kilometers to go, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman still has a 30" lead, having clearly capitalized on his strong downhill skills! Will this be enough to fend off the approaching pack?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_53.jpg

The answer seems to be "No", as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare has almost closed the gap with three kilometers to go! But will he still be able to win the sprint after this huge effort? Or will pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Mager indeed be able to get the desired result for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Team Puma?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arndt probably won't, as his group is still trailing the 40-rider peloton by about 40".


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_54.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman's great breakaway performance is over with just 2 kilometers to go! Now it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot preparing the sprint for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Reis, with all the big names in the first positions! Well, except for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare and most other pure puncheurs, as the former has fallen back to the end of the group, and the latter are mostly trailing in one of the left-behind groups.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_55.jpg

Here they are, actually, together with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki. They have to hope that nobody wants to keep up the pace in the leading group, if they want to have a chance to come back!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_56.jpg

But the pack isn't slowing down by any means - on the contrary! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Sivakov leads out pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy as we head onto the final kilometer - Fiamma Rossa for the peloton!

Everything is really close together right now; we can just see that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Carboni currently are in the next positions behind the two Russians, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Kuboki and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna close behind! And pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare falling off behind!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_57.jpg

While most of the riders want to take the steep inside lane, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy has chosen to stay on the outside of this final turn, still following his leadout pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Sivakov! 700m to go, and it's a very messy sprint!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_58.jpg

With 500m to go, it's somewhat easier to get things sorted out! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Kuboki have taken the first positions, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe currently in 3rd and 4th.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png van der Poel and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil have taken pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna's and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Kuboki's wheel respectively and are in an amazing position! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Carboni, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Nesset, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kirsch and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Talansky are next!

We then have another row with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Sivakov, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Canty, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Chiarello, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Haig, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Karnulin, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Izagirre, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Boswell and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Brenes, and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Reis and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Bongiorno somewhere between these two rows.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak definitely doesn't have a great position, just like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Shikai and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Mager! That strategy doesn't seem to work out for the Germans!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_59.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna takes the lead ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Kuboki with 400m left! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png van der Poel and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil are still well placed - especially the two latter, as they still benefit from the splipstream of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Kuboki respectively!

One line further back, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Talansky, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Canty are the strongest right now, but that could quickly change - it's just so close back there!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_60.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Kuboki takes back the lead 100m later! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe is very strong, too, having almost caught up with the two leaders!

On the other hand, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy has slightly faded, dropping back to the level of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png van der Poel, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Talansky, who will likely deliver pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Generali's best result of the day.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Canty on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png van der Poel's wheel and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Chiarello on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil's could capitalize on the slipstream in the end, let's see!

Further down the road, we first have a group of riders dropped off the first group, and only then the chasers led by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arndt and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh. Can they still limit or even eliminate their losses?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_61.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Kuboki has now clearly faded and is at risk of dropping far back! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna has taken the lead ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe, whereas pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy seems to have got a second wind, still level with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png van der Poel and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Canty, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Chiarello, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kirsch and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Talansky follow in the next line, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Carboni, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Izagirre, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Bongiorno and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Brenes slightly further back.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Amador, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Valls, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Haig, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Nesset, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Karnulin are next, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Boswell and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Reis.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Faglum Karlsson, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Mager and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Shikai are in the last positions of this first group, from which pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Schleck and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen have just been dropped!

Only 200 meters to the line!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_62.jpg

Only 100m to go! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna are now on level terms, which holds as well for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png van der Poel and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil right behind! Who has got most left?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_63.jpg

It seems to be pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png van der Poel, as he takes the lead just a few meters later! Can the youngster make it two in a row here?

However, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil have definitely not thrown in the towel yet, whereas pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy don't seem to have much left.

Instead, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Canty and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Chiarello are moving up, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Talansky still at that level as well. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kirsch and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Bongiorno are next, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Amador has made quite a big jump forward as well.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_64.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png van der Poel is still leading and definitely has chosen the best line, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil and especially pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe have a much longer distance to cover! These three still seem to be fighting for the podium, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy are slightly behind.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Chiarello and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Canty are doing a great job as well - but it's likely too late to get a Top 5 result.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_65.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Mathieu van der Poel does it again! Just one day after his first GT stage win, he ups the ante and upsets all the big guns today! Fantastic and surprising win, definitely!

But who can take second under pouring rain? It seemed to be between pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy is actually back in contention as well!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_66.jpg

It's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Warren Barguil! He showed a great sprint as well, and will be asking himself tonight what he did wrong to be beaten by the Dutchman today - but this result should still give him a lot of confidence for the dreaded TT in two days!

Gaining even more confidence, that's definitely true for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Rein Taaramäe as well, as he claims the final podium spot of the day. He's really not a sprinter at all, but he's been very attentive and well positioned throughout all stages so far, thus his 3rd place today doesn't come as a big surprise - even though he isn't among the very best puncheurs, either.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_67.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Timofey Kritskiy finally has to settle for 4th, showing that he is ready for the bigger tasks, too. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Sean McKenna makes it a really good day for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Moser - Sygic, taking a very good 5th place, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png William Chiarello takes 6th.

It looked very good for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Brendan Canty for quite a long time - but teammate pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Jack Haig edges him out on the line. That's 7th and 8th for the pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bennelong riders.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_69.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Rafael Valls then makes it two pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Aegon riders in the Top 10 as well, taking 9th place. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Andrew Talansky rounds off the Top 10, narrowly ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Alex Kirsch, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Denys Karnulin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Francesco Bongiorno.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Gregory Brenes and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Andrei Amador take 14th and 15th, before we finally have the two best pure puncheurs in pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Ian Boswell and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Ion Izagirre. No, it wasn't really their day as well - the final hill was probably too short to really capitalize on their superior punch.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Sigurd Nesset, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Rafael Reis and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Giovanni Carboni round off the Top 20.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_70.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Schleck couldn't hide today that he doesn't really like those hilly courses, losing 30" and taking 27th place. Inside the front group ahead of him, we had in 21st to 26th pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Shikai, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Faglum Karlsson, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Mager and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Kuboki.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Team Puma - SAP will definitely have to discuss their tactics tonight, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare basically helped pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png van der Poel to win the stage, while his team didn't even bring a rider inside the Top 20 - and their GC leader moreover lost contact due to the Frenchman's tremendous work. No, that was a complete failure, we have to label it as such.

By the way, 8" behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Schleck, we have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Ludvigsson and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen crossing the line.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_71.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png McCarthy gets a disappointing result again - but at least he tried by joining the breakaway. Unlucky that it didn't work out today... He reaches the line 47" behind the winner, which is also the time that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arndt, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kruijswijk and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh lose today. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Vakoc and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare finish inside this group, too.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_72.jpg

But it's an even worse day for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Aru, who loses 2'13" and drops out of the Top 20 in the GC. It's time to get the real mountains started for the riders who were on the losing side today!

But well, first we have two more stages - including that infamous 55 kilometer time trial in two days. But let's not think about that one too much already, let's rather celebreate today's great winner!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_73.jpg

And the winner is - for the second day in a row - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Mathieu van der Poel! Whereas he "just" mastered a breakaway group including 7 riders yesterday, he was able to beat some of the best puncheurs and climbers of the world on that final incline today, by again finding the perfect timing for his sprint! What a great time he's having here in Italy, with this being alread his third podium in four days - amazing! Congratulations!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Warren Barguil must be slightly disappointed to be beaten by a much weaker climber, and slightly weaker puncheur - but the Dutchman simply is the better sprinter. With the flatter final meters, that might have been decisive - nonetheless, the Frenchman clearly showed that the legs are good, which looks promising for the tasks to come!

Which of course holds even more for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Rein Taaramäe, who is considered to be the best climber in this peloton anyway - and one of the very best time trialists as well. He's showing a good race so far, and as he wasn't able to get a lot of time gaps so far, these eight bonus seconds today are surely welcome!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_74.jpg

This man has once again delivered a very strong performance! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kamil Malecki lost contact several times - and finally only conceded 47" to the strongest, still holding on to his 10-minute-lead ahead of teammate pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Steven Kruijswijk!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Christian Mager finished in the top group, thereby reducing his deficit to 10'15" - but it's not very likely he'll still be up there by the end of the race, either.

So, after all the hills and mountains of week 2 are (already) done, let's take another look at the GC including only the presumed contenders - although we have got no idea for how long pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki can still hold on, and where he'll end up!

In the five stages so far in this second week, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Haig and most of the other team leaders were able to gain 2'18" on Maglia Rosa pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki - which isn't a lot, of course, but the time trial alone could result in much higher time gains for some. And the mountains awaiting us in week three will be tough, especially given it will be week 3! So although the Pole seems to be pretty safe up there, it's still a long way to go for him!


Nonetheless, he'll enjoy the pink and white jerseys probably for at least three more days, as tomorrow is a flat stage, and it's unlikely he'll lose 10 minutes in two days. In the U25 standings, by the way, he still leads 10'34" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Kristaps Budenieks and 17'35" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Egan Bernal, as both finished in the same group as him today.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_75.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arnaud Demare's face says it all - he is not happy about what happened today. Instead of taking his great chances for a stage win, he had to lead the chase for quite some kilometers - only to drop his team leader pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arndt and finally having not enough left to compete himself for a stage result. A disappointing day for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Team Puma - SAP. Nonetheless, the Frenchie defends his points jersey with his 111 points. However, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Mathieu van der Poel has clearly closed in after his back-to-back stage wins, totalling 93 points. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Emiliano Contreras slipped down to 3rd, 35 points behind the leader.

Tomorrow's sprint stage will be extremely important for the Magalia Ciclamino standings, with 50 points on offer for the stage winner!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_76.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Aleksandar Roman finally has it, the Maglia Azzurra! Coming short of the lead by just 3 points yesterday, he joined the breakaway once again and collected 11 points - meaning that he now leads with 42 points, 8 ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Petr Vakoc. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kamil Malecki, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Kristaps Budenieks, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Ian Boswell and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Joey Rosskopf still share 3rd place with 26 points, now 16 points off the lead.

It was a perfect timing to claim this jersey, as with no points available on the next two stages, the Serb can be sure to still wear it at the start of week three!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S12/mg20_giro_s12_77.jpg

It wasn't the best of days for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Gazelle, but as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png cycleYorkshire and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png eBuddy, 2nd and 3rd pre-stage, had even worse days, they still extend their lead! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Evonik - ELKO have moved up to 2nd, 10'49" back, whereas pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Team Puma - SAP are now 3rd, 11'35" behind. Let's see how that changes with stage 14...


But before that time trial which will without any doubt have a big impact on the GC, we have yet another sprint stage awaiting us tomorrow! Let's check out whether the sprinters can again triumph, or if the breakaway riders once again strike back!
