Giro d’Italia – ST11
May 11th – June 2nd
WEDNESDAY, 22 MAY 2019
Carpi>Novi Ligure, 221km. Sprint Finish.
“Today was the second long stage (221km) but without great difficulty – comments our Team ambassador Joaquim “Purito” Rodriguez – where you have to try to do as little effort as possible. The best way is to stay in the middle of the group, ride in agility and protect yourself from the wind. It is forbidden, however, to relax too much because, as has happened today, it’s easy to crash. Also the final can be complicated because so many riders want to stay in front. It is important to be close to the captain”. “Tomorrow will be a nervous and suitable stage for those who want to attack – explains SD Franco Pellizotti – with a challenging climb but too far from the finish line. Today long and quite hot day with temperatures between 25/27 degrees and the ending as expected. Everything will change from Friday!”
The Australian Caleb Ewan claimed his second Giro stage after a bunch sprint. No change in the overall standings with Italian Valerio Conti still wearing the pink jersey”.
