Yesterday’s Giro stage* had Tinkoff working on the front all day, seemingly to safely deliver OGE’s maglia rosa to the finish line for a blingin’ win.
In a short, difficult stage, Tinkoff-Saxo drove the peloton all day long, leaving Orica-GreenEDGE’s Michael Matthews fresh to take the sprint win and keep the pink jersey, with Trek’s Fabio Felline and Philippe Gilbert taking second and third. But the result is secondary to what happened on the road today.
After last weekend’s racing, we’re a quarter of the way into the WorldTour season, with seven of the 28 events now completed. So how are the standings shaping up?
