Either Trek’s Eugenio Alafaci is standing on a box or his teammate Julian Arredondo is tiny! But then, he is a natural in the mountains so perhaps he is just that size. Here’s an interview with the Giro’s current King of the Mountains.

Stage 8: Foligno to Montecopiolo, 179km
In a gripping medium mountain stage, Diego Ulissi put in a well-timed attack amidst a flurry of activity to win the stage while the climbs gave ‘Bling’ the sling and put Cadel Evans into pink.
Stage 5: Taranto to Viggiano, 203km
Diego Ulissi timed his late attack to perfection to sail over the line a second ahead of Cadel Evans and Julian Arredondo as the general classification contenders fought for bonus seconds on the Giro’s first summit finish.
