Filippo Ganna, glimmering in rainbow bands atop his golden bike as World Time Trial Champion, rocketed into hat-trick territory on Stage 14 of this Giro d’Italia. The 24-year-old Ineos rider continued an all-star rise to fame, dominating all others on the rolling 34km course between Conegliano to Valdobbiadene. Aussie, and fellow Ineos teammate, Rohan Dennis finished second at 26 seconds. American and UAE rider Brandon McNulty went quickest amongst the GC favourites to finish third. While the GC Top 10 shifted somewhat, no dramatic changes occurred as Joao Almeida continues his maglia rosa run.
Day three at Doha saw the junior men and the elite women face the race of truth. Both saw superb action, both were exciting in their own way and both ended with The Star Spangled Banner ringing across the podium area. Oh and we got the first Dane on the podium #happyMidge
