Today’s 150km stage in the Giro d’Italia finishing atop Mount Etna was won by Jonathan Caicedo (EF Pro Cycling) who attacked from the remnants of the day’s break on the leg-sapping ascent up Linguaglossa to solo across the line. Giovanni Visconti (Vini Zabu-KTM) finished second on the stage, 21 seconds behind, followed by Lotto-Soudal’s Harm Vanhoucke a further nine seconds back. Joao Almeida (Deceuninck-QuickStep) is the new overall leader after a day that saw a massive shake-up in the general classification.
We gather round the table and talk about SO MUCH RACING!
- The World Championships
- The Binck Bank Tour
- Oh … and the Giro
Under discussion: premature celebrations, windy time trials, Peter Sagan’s form, which team has the worst nicknames and is it ever acceptable to wear shoes without socks? And why did Luke say, ‘It’s not that I don’t like it, but every time I see it, I want to gag a little’?
