Diego Ulissi (UAE-Team Emirates) grabbed his second victory of this Giro d’Italia and his eighth in total. A ferocious finale on Stage 13 featuring two sharp climbs saw a GC centric group fight it out for stage winning honours and those all important bonus seconds. The Italian powered to the line to pip the maglia rosa with BORA-hansgrohe’s Patrick Konrad rounding out the podium. Joao Almeida‘s second place gives him six extra seconds on all his rivals before the time trial tomorrow.
It was a double-header today for men’s cycling, with Liege-Bastogne-Liege and Stage 2 of the Giro d’Italia raced today. The Giro was fairly straightforward, but LBL – well! That’s a different story!
