Bongiorno da Melide, Ticino! Welcome to Switzerland for the start of the 18th stage of the 2020 Giro d'Italia! From Lugano, we have moved South a few kilometers, to Melide. This small village is best known for Swissminiature, an open-air museum containing over 120 famous buildings and monuments of Switzerland in 1:25,000 scale, as well as some model railways, ships or mountain railways. Moreover, the Melide causeway across Lake Lugano is an important connection between the Southern section of Ticino an the rest of Switzerland, being both a railway and motorway bridge.

From the start, we'll first go back to Lugano before heading West, as we can't really ride through the lake. The riders will however follow the shores of Lake Lugano until its southmost point in Porto Ceresio, thereby crossing the Swiss-Italian border in Ponte Tresa.

The first part of the stage is slightly undulating, as we head south to the Lago di Varese. We then continue our "Four-lakes tour", coasting the Lago di Comabbio before finally crossing the Ticino river in Sesto Calende, reaching the shores of Lago Maggiore, after about 60 kilometers.

From there, the roads will be really flat for about 45 kilometers, and the intermediate sprint in Baveno, after 89.7km, was also placed on this section. The (uncategorized) hill climb from Fondotoce to Bieno with slightly more than 60 kilometers to go should then wake up the riders, as the most important part of the stage is about to start.

The riders will descend to the outskirts of Verbania, today's arrival location, and will ride along the shores of Lake Maggiore until they reach Cannero Riviera. Let's hope that everyone is awake by then, as from there starts today's sole categorized climb - the 1st category ascent to Monte Ologno!

However, even after reaching the KoM sprint with only 32.2 kilometers to go, the climbing isn't done, as after a short descent, we'll go further up to Piancavallo, the highest point of the stage. Only about 25 kilometers will be left from there!

The final downhill to the finish line is interrupted by another short counterslope - which may invite for a decisive attack, as it's just 15km of descending to the line from there!

As we already said, that finish line will be in Verbania, home to about 30,000 people. The Lake Maggiore massacres of World War II are among the darkest chapters of the city, and a memorial in Fondotoce still testifies to this crime. On a more positive note, several churches and palaces can be seen here, as well as a botanical garden - and the shores of Lake Maggiore always invite to take a refreshing bath!

We'll see in a few hours who will take a bath in champagne, and who will rather be drowning on that tough climb! Two days ago, Maglia Rosa pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki delivered his masterpiece by keeping up with the best climbers on the Mortirolo - so the Monte Ologno should be a walk in the park for him, right?

Well, we surely hope that we'll see much more moves than on stage 16 - in which case the Pole might really get into troubles! But he's suprised us so often by now - why not today? He's surely not on the favorites list - but who knows, if he can keep up until Piancavallo, anyone could win this one!

The bookmakers however go the safe way, naming the strongest climbers on their list. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy come out on top once again. Great downhiller pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Shikai and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Reis are next - we'll see if the Portuguese has finally found his legs! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Amador, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Schleck and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Bongiorno haven't done great things so far, either, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Haig is still in the fight for the overall podium - a stage win would definitely be a great bonus for him!

But will they really do more than what we've seen so far? Especially those who want to move up a few positions absolutely need to take some risk soon - why not today? Else, it's highly probable that a breakaway will take this stage once again - and with the gaps in the GC already quite large, we can again expect a few big names to be on the move early on!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_01.jpg

The riders are lined up at the foot of Monte San Salvatore - which they won't have to climb, though. The mountain to their left, the lake to their right - let's go!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_02.jpg

However, it takes until we reach a small hill in Lugano to see the first wave of attacks, led by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sakalou. Maglia Azzurra pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman was very attentive and is right behind, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Ji and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_03.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Izagirre is trying to finally get a notable result in this Giro, taking pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Kozhatayev and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sergis with him.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_04.jpg

Next is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Iturria, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Vosekalns is trying to make it three pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Evonik - ELKO riders up front! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen is attacking once more as well!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_05.jpg

Of course, if pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen goes clear, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal has to do so, too - as they are 2nd and 3rd in the U25 standings. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Bizkarra is the third pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Isostar - Specialized rider on the attack.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_06.jpg

It still isn't over, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot breaks away! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh, another familiar attacker, is trying to catch up.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_07.jpg

At the end of the short descent, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett is the next to try his luck. No response from the peloton so far.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_08.jpg

The front riders are already more than two minutes ahead, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Crncevic, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Budenieks and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Costagli decide they're still close enough to have a chance of bridging the gap.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_09.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Abreu seems to be inspired by their attack, trying on his own as well.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_10.jpg

So far, no serious threat for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman's KoM jersey has attacked - which pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz is trying to change now. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna takes his wheel.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_11.jpg

The pack still doesn't seem to really care. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Nizzolo is leading, but definitely not pushing hard. The gap to the front of the race has outgrown the 3 minutes mark by now.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_12.jpg

Even the latest attackers eventually make it to the leading group. With an advantage of almost 5 minutes, it's probably safe to speak of the Breakaway of the Day now.

Once again, we have some strong climbers up front, led by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Ji and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh can almost match his climbing skills, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Vosekalns not far off, either. The latter furthermore has the huge advantage of having three teammates with him - all of which are decent to good climbers, too.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman will surely try to extend his lead in the KoM standings - or at least hold on to his jersey. Furthermore, we might see him attacking on the final downhill, being the strongest rider of the group on negative slopes.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Iturria, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Kozhatayev, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh - all of them are strong climbers as well. None of the group's riders can however be classified as "weak" on the uphills, making for a wide open race.

If we should have a sprint on the last kilometer - which is relatively flat again - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Budenieks looks to be the fastest - but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman or pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna might make up for a slightly lower top speed with their good acceleration. But as always on such stages, it would mainly come down to good positioning!

First of all, they have to make it, of course - and then, it's all but granted that all of them survive the climb(s)!

GC-wise, this breakaway could be interesting mainly for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal, who are 17th and 20th - and with the current gap have already moved up to 10th and 13th respectively. Furthermore, we have 2nd to 4th (pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Budenieks) of the U25 standings in this group.

But just as interesting will be the duel pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman vs. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz on Monte Ologno - if they make it until there. The Serb currently is 8 points ahead of the Ecuadorian - with 16 points on offer, it could well go both ways!

Last but not least, here's an overview of these 21 riders:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_13.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Generali are doing most of the chasing work so far - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak and/or pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Talansky have to feel good today! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Leung and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Fominykh are close to the front - too; will they chase down their own teammates? At least in the latter's case, it might be understandable, as they have one of the weakest riders up front.

Their deficit isn't really changing, however; it's been hovering around 5 minutes for some kilometers now.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_14.jpg

The leaders have just left behind Varese, riding by the shores of the correspondent lake for a few kilometers. About half of the riders up front don't do any work: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sergis, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Budenieks, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Vosekalns, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Kozhatayev, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Izagirre, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Iturria and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh, who all have a teammate taking turns however.

They can't extend their lead anymore, but don't lose time, either. 4'50" is the latest information we have.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_15.jpg

The pack has reached the third out of four different lakes today, Lago di Comabbio. Just a few kilometers until we get to the southmost point of today's stage. But with pretty much no wind today, the direction doesn't really matter.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Rosskopf and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Fernandes are leading the pack, but not really the chase, being still 4'53" behind the breakaway. It's a still a long way to go, though.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_16.jpg

"Leading" is the right word, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz leads the escapees over the line at the intermediate sprint, by the shores of the Lago Maggiore. The riders currently are in Baveno, just vis-Ă -vis of today's arrival location Verbania. They still have 25km to go until their first passage over there.

Here's the full points distribution at the intermediate sprint:

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz - 10 (27)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sakalou - 6 (18)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Abreu - 4 (5)
4. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Ji - 2 (2)
5. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Crncevic - 1 (1)


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_17.jpg

The pack has definitely picked up the pace, reducing the deficit to 3'44" by this point. It looks like they finally do care about a stage win! And especially pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Generali seem to be willing to work a lot to get at least a third straight stage podium.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_18.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett leads the front group into the climb from Fondotoce to Bieno. With maximum gradients of 7%, it's not a big deal - but more of a wake-up call, as we said pre-stage.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_19.jpg

Still, it's a great opportunity to further cut down the breakaway's lead - and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Ludvigsson is surely a good choice to do so. 3'18" remaining as the pack enters this ascent.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_20.jpg

We don't know why or how, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage indeed manages to lose touch on this short hill. We didn't get a notice about a technical problem, so he just has to be on a very bad day.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_21.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett leads the group all the way to the hilltop. They'll now descend to Verbania, while the climb to Monte Ologno starts in about 20 kilometers.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_22.jpg

The peloton hasn't been pushing too hard on this incline, just reducing their deficit by 15 seconds. Most of the top climbers are already well positioned, knowing what awaits them in about half an hour.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_23.jpg

Ouch, that hurts! Just as the pack picks up the pace again on the descent, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kruijswijk punctures! Will he be able to re-join?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_24.jpg

The leaders have arrived in Verbania, taking the same final meters of the descent that will lead them to the finish line 55 kilometers later. They have to turn left for now, though, entering that additional lap which contains all the fun of today's stage!

13km to the foot of Monte Ologno.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_25.jpg

While the riders are on the flat roads along the lakeside, let's take a look at what awaits them in a few moments. Especially the start of the climb isn't much easier than the Mortirolo was two days ago. It's still slightly shorter and below 10% of average gradients, but with more than 10km in length it provides a great opportunity for an attack! Be it in the breakaway or back in the pack - if those groups stay apart, that is!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_26.jpg

The climb is on for the breakaway! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett leads them into the first slopes that are already quite steep - and will reach up to 11% eventually!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_27.jpg

The peloton - which pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kruijswijk has just caught up with a kilometer ago - follows about 3 minutes later, led by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Castrillo. Not the greatest climber, he probably won't keep the lead for a long time, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Rosskopf is already there to take over!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_28.jpg

Two kilometers of climbing done, as it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Pruus taking command. The escapees' advantage is already down to 2'21" - let's see if they can reach the top ahead of the top climbers from the pack!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_29.jpg

Of course, the pretty high pace in the bunch almost instantly drops the first riders. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Haugard is among them, just like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Reus and yesterday's runner-up pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Gamper.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_30.jpg

Then it's time for the sprinters to say goodbye to the pack. So we have pretty well-known riders back here - but none that we would expect further ahead in the mountains. Except maybe for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kruijswijk - who just seems to have spent too much energy trying to close the gap after his puncture. Bad luck for sure!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_31.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sakalou is now leading the breakaway, as the peloton is already well within sight! Only 1'29" remain of the 3-minute gap four kilometers ago - that went fast! When will we see the first attacks?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_32.jpg

Not yet, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Aker - MOT still have three helpers keeping up the pace for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Pruus, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Aranburu and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Quintana. No attacks either in the front group, which sees the gap go down to one minute now!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_33.jpg

More and more riders are dropped, leaving just 83 men in the peloton right now. The most notable name is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Ludvigsson, though, so no GC rider has shown any weakness so far.

Stage 18 / 21: Mountainous, 170.1km

Melide (SWI) - Verbania

Part 2 / 2



pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_34.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Bizkarra is the first rider shed by the breakaway - no surprise, as he's done a lot of work today! Still no attack - but that's pretty difficult when the strongest clibmer in pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz is pulling the group!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_35.jpg

All of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe's helpers have tired by now - and the pace has dropped once again! This would be a perfect opportunity to attack - but no! So it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Van Niekerk who sets a steady yet rather slow pace - which is still enough to catch pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Bizkarra.

However, the breakaway's advantage has jumped up by a minute already - where are the top climbers???


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_36.jpg

Nothing happens until we're 1.3km from the top - and it's obviously pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz launching the attack for the KoM points! If he arrives first on top, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman needs to take at least 3rd to still have the exclusive lead!

Meanwhile, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Budenieks, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Gillett and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Crncevic have been dropped - bad news for the Latvian's U25 ambitions!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_37.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz indeed manages to break free from the group - but he still has pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman with him! Definitely not the scenario he was hoping for, as he can't take the KoM lead in this constellation - he has to hope to finally drop the Serb!

But that doesn't happen, as he even barely holds on to take maximum points on top. He still does it, reducing his deficit to 2 points, as we'll see later.

This trio now has quite a considerable gap, and they even have a great downhiller with them in pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman - can they pull it through all the way?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_39.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Iturria and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Costagli are next to arrive on top, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh. They already have a 43" gap to the leading trio!

Let's take a look at the full points distribution on top of Monte Ologno:

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz - 16 (60)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen - 12 (28)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman - 10 (62)
4. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Iturria - 8 (18)
5. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Costagli - 6 (22)
6. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh - 4 (10)
7. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot - 2 (2)

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman holds onto the Maglia Azzurra, but only 2 points ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz! We'll surely have a great duel between them on the next two stages!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen moves up to 7th and should not be ruled out, given the good performances on the last few days!

At the group's tail, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna is heavily struggling now!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_40.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman attacks! The Serb uses his superb downhill skills to create a gap between himself and the duo pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen! Can he go all the way to the line?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_41.jpg

When starting the last part of the climb, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman still has a lead of a few seconds on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen - but these chasers don't seem to be too worried yet. There are maximum slopes of 10% right ahead - spending too much energy can cost dear on such ascents!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_42.jpg

Meanwhile, the peloton finally, finally arrives on top of Monte Ologno. Want to guess their deficit? I'll tell you: 4'35"!!! They had again cut that gap down to under a minute - just to chill during the rest of the climb!

Well, there are some happy men up front, who surely won't complain, as they're very likely fighting out the stage win once again.

And the happiest man on earth should be pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki anyway, as he never was in danger of losing contact on that climb. Another mountain checked off his to-do list...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_43.jpg

Well, that attack didn't stick. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen are all caught again by the chasing group - leaving 15 riders up front:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Vosekalnspcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sakalou
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Iturriapcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Romanpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Kozhatayev
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernalpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Izagirre
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Costagli
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Ji
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Abreu



pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_44.jpg

Which means that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sergis were dropped over the top of Monte Ologno and are still desperately trying to catch up again! We're in the 10% section now - does someone have enough left to launch a decisive attack here?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_45.jpg

Well, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz leading, it's hard to go faster and break away, so the group reaches the top of the stage still with a headcount of 15. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sergis and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna are already 1'46" behind - they will have to hope for the leaders to not push too hard on the downhill!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_46.jpg

Just as the peloton heads into those steep slopes, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe finally decides it's time to go! Can anyone counter the Estonian's strong push?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_47.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe still has a slight advantage - but over the hilltop, we see pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kirsch and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil trying to break free as well! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy had led the pack - can he now go along with this attack?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_48.jpg

Yes, he can! And so, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe now leads 14" ahead of a chasing quartet consisting of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kirsch!

However, they're just 17" ahead of the peloton - where pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki is still sitting comfortably in the middle.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_49.jpg

It's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Bongiorno leading the chase, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Schir, who for once was able to keep up. With that many riders still in the pack, it's pretty likely that the attacks won't lead anywhere - but we'll see!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_50.jpg

No attacks on the descent so far, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh leads the group onto the final 20 kilomters of the stage!

Despite the attacks from the peloton, they still have a three-minute advantage - with pretty much just descending roads left. The last short (but rather flat) ascent will be upon them in a kilomter - last realistic chance for those who don't fancy a sprint lottery!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_51.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe still looks determined to pull through, but the chasers are getting closer and closer. He has overtaken all left-behind breakaway riders bar pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sergis so far, so there are 17 riders remaining ahead of the pack.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_52.jpg

The breakaway tackles this last uphill section of the day - let's see what happens!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_53.jpg

Further behind, it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Carboni reeling in the quartet of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Kritskiy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kirsch. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe doesn't seem to be going full gas anymore, either, seeing that his attempt is doomed.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_54.jpg

No attacks whatsoever on this last incline - 15.5 kilometers to go! Will someone still try his luck on the descent, or are they already starting the sprint preparations?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_55.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe has just caught pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sergis and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png McKenna - and at the same time is pretty much caught himself. But there are still a few seconds between him and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil - will he accelerate again?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_56.jpg

10 kilometers to go for the escapees, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Kozhatayev leading them on the downhill. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman is sitting in third to last position - saving energy or preparing a late attack?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_57.jpg

The peloton flies by this point 3'08" later - being definitely out of contention for the stage win. That's yet another steep climb wasted to improve on their GC positions - but well, we don't make their strategies, do we?

By the way, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe has been reeled in - alone against 60 was a hopeless undertaking, and he finally realized that.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_58.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz leads the breakaway onto the final five kilometers. We'll have some twisty roads now - let's hope they're still attentive enough to tackle those turns well!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_59.jpg

With three kilometers to go, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz still leads! Which isn't even necessarily a bad position, given the next few turns!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot is in 2nd position, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal. For those towards the end, it will be hard to come up front in time!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_60.jpg

Only two kilomters remaining, as they leave behind the mountain roads! The incline is still slightly negative, which will surely make for a very fast finale!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_61.jpg

And pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz is still in first position under the Fiamma Rossa! Being a non-sprinter, maybe he just hopes to stay there for as long as possible, as this might be his only chance for a good stage result! The order behind him is:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Ji
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Abreu
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Costagli
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Iturria
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Kozhatayev
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Roman
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sakalou
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Izagirre

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Vosekalns even has left a small gap - he doesn't seem to fancy his chances at all!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_62.jpg

600m to go! Due to that final turn, the order hasn't changed so far - but now they will launch their sprints! Given the short distance remaining, those with a good acceleration should have the best chances - if their position isn't too bad already!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_63.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz is clearly fading already, with 400m to go - while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot is about to pass the Ecuadorian! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal are fighting for 3rd, with a slight advantage for the Colombian!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen has got a free road ahead as well, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh might struggle to pass the Norwegian!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_64.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen now with a very strong acceleration, catching up with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz is still resisting, though, leading the race with 300m to go!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal is struggling to keep up with those up front, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Ji don't seem to be able to go faster, either.

And at the end of the group, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Vosekalns and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Sakalou aren't even sprinting at all! What's that strange attitude about?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_65.jpg

With 200m left, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen has taken the lead! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz has even dropped behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal almost level with him, too!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen is able to more or less keep up with the Top 4, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh doesn't seem to have enough left in the tank!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_66.jpg

100 meters later, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen has slightly extended the lead on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal now neck-and-neck! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen is trying, but he doesn't quite manage to draw level with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_67.jpg

Only 50m to the line - can anyone still stop pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen? pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Teklehaimanot holds about the same gap, but he doesn't seem to be able to strike back, either!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Bernal now has a slight edge over pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz - who even needs to hurry up to stay ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Laengen! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh has been in 6th place all the way - and he'll likely stay there.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_68.jpg

It's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Tom Wirtgen! The Luxembourger had an ideal position heading into the sprint, and then left the others no chance in this fast finish! Congratulations to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png EA Vesuvio for their first podium in this Giro - and obviously their first win!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_69.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Daniel Teklehaimanot takes 2nd, and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Egan Bernal completes today's stage podium. Both didn't do anything wrong - but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen was just stronger!

Meanwhile, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Richard Antonio Carapaz narrowly misses out on his second podium of the race, taking 4th place. So the top 4 going into the final kilometer are also the Top 4 at the line - although in different order.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Vegard Stake Laengen just didn't have enough left to overtake any of them - and so the order didn't change compared to the one we had at the red kite, as he finishes ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Tim Kennaugh, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Jianhua Ji and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Jorge Abreu.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_70.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Teodoro Costagli then narrowly defends 9th place against pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Aleksandar Roman - who did a good sprint, but had a horrible position going into the final 1,000 meters.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Mikel Iturria then takes 11th, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Bakhtiyar Kozhatayev and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Ion Izagirre.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_71.jpg

And the pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Evonik boys? Well... We don't know why, but they just refused to sprint - and even finish 33" behind the others, in the order pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Andrei Sakalou - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Andris Vosekalns. They definitely didn't play their numbers well today!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_72.jpg

The points are gone, the peloton will only be fighting for 16th place. Let's still look at what happens back here - and especially at how much time they lose today. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Rosskopf leads them onto the last two kilometers, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Quintana.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_73.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Rosskopf still leads under the red kite, with some of the top climbers right behind: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Chiarello, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Haig, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kirsch, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Spilak, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Reis, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Valls.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_74.jpg

Once more, it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Rein Taaramäe who has most left, taking 16th place, exactly 3 minutes later than stage winner pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Wirtgen.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_75.jpg

While pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Rafael Valls clearly takes 17th, it's a very close call for 18th between pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Takeaki Amezawa and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png William Chiarello - with the better end for the Brazilian. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Jack Haig rounds off today's Top 20.

But today's biggest winner crosses the line in 44th place. Yeah, for sure, it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki, who again didn't lose any time today. Only two more mountainous days left...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_76.jpg

However, there are still some riders losing a few seconds today, as a gap opened right ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Brenes! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arndt is in this group as well, just like top puncheurs pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Boswell and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Vakoc. They lose 36" to the pack.

The biggest - and most unlucky - loser is surely pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kruijswijk, who crosses the line 9 minutes behind the peloton - not because he was that bad, but because of a puncture in the worst possible moment.

All riders easily make the time limit today, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Haugard being the last to finish, 26'47" behind the winner.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/GTM/Giro/S18/mg20_giro_s18_77.jpg

And this winner is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Tom Wirtgen! The youngster had already joined the breakaway on the last two mountain stages, getting a 6th place as his best stage result two days ago. Although not being among the best climbers, he showed his strong legs already on top of Monte Ologno - and confirmed this great impression on the final stretch! Congratulations to yet another first-time GT stage winner!

This is something pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Daniel Teklehaimanot has already checked off his bucket list - but he'll still be disappointed about being outsprinted on the final meters. He did a great job as well - but someone just was slightly stronger...

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Egan Bernal continues to impress us in this race, being only a level 3 rider, but already competing for the U25 win - and now taking a GT stage podium - already the 4th for PCT team pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Polar in this race!

The stronger climbers in the group may regret not having tried something on the long category 1 climb - but well, it is what it is.

The fact that there weren't any attacks from the peloton either on that steep ascent definitely makes pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kamil Malecki happy! The Pole still leads the GC 3'02" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Rein Taaramäe and 3'30" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Timofey Kritskiy.

Two more mountain stages are awaiting the riders. Two more days of hoping that the big guns take it easy. Two more days to realize one of the biggest upsets ever in cyling. Only two... However, two with a mountain top finish - and not as easy ones as we had in Aprica two days ago. But by now, anythings seems to be possible... we'll see!


Of course, things look even much better in the youth standings for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kamil Malecki. Although pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Egan Bernal and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Tom Wirtgen have both gained 3 minutes today due to their successful breakaway attempt, the Pole still leads by 12'42" respectively by 15'20". At least the white jersey dream seems to materialize more and more!

By the way, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Budenieks' attack wasn't successful - on the contrary: losing contact in the end, he even fell down to 5th, behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Geoghegan Hart.

It was a good day as well for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arnaud Demare, as none of his closest rivals in the points standings got any points today. His total of 168 point means he still leads 59 points ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Rein Taaramäe and 69 ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Mathieu van der Poel. Both of them could however easily drop down quite a few spots on the final stage if they don't score on the next two days.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Aleksandar Roman will surely have to score on the two remaining mountain stages to defend his jersey, as there's still a maximum of 84 points available - and his current score stands at 62.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Richard Antonio Carapaz has almost closed his gap now, trailing by only two points, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Winner Anacona - not scoring today - is now 14 points behind. We'll surely have some more battles for the Maglia Azzurra on the next two days!

Seeing pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Gazelle still in the lead of the team standings is definitely not surprising, given their advantage. They still lead 14'01" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Aegon - Peroni, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Grieg-Maersk have moved up to 3rd thanks to their double presence in the breakaway. They trail by 17'22". But the big gaps will most likely occur on the next two days, so let's wait and see...


All in all, it was yet another day where we were hoping for some attacks from the pack. We did indeed see some, but way too late, only on the short climb to the top of the stage. The long, pretty steep climb up to Monte Ologno went by without a single attempt - even allowing the breakaway to extend their lead from one minute to almost five...

If the top climbers don't just want to watch pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki winning this Giro, they need to finally step into action - and not only on the final 500 meters of a stage. Tomorrow's stage will be extremely long, containing three category 1 climbs in the last third. Anything could happen - an early attack as well as yet another lame race. Some will hope for the former, some for the latter - we just want to see some great cycling! Let's see tomorrow if we get it!
