After yesterday’s bonkers day, the GC contenders took it easy on Stage 15 of the 2022 Giro d’Italia and let a big break go. In that break was Trek-Segafredo’s Giulio Ciccone, who had diamonds in his legs. Racing with head and heart, he attacked on the steepest part of the final climb to take an emotional solo victory. Second on the stage was Bahrain’s Santiago Buitrago and third was Antonio Pedrero (Movistar). Only the KOM jersey changes shoulders tonight, back to Jumbo’s Koen Bouwman and Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) hustles his way back into the top ten.
