THURSDAY, 16 MAY 2019
Cassino>San Giovanni Rotondo, 238km. Hilly.
There was a great battle to go on the breakaway – explains Domenico Pozzovivo – also because yesterday Primoz Roglic had said that he would have given space to the attackers. There were several attempts and at the end 12 riders left the peloton and played for stage victory and especially for the pink jersey”.
“The team remained close to Vincenzo also to protect him from the strong wind – still Domenico – I’m recovering well from the crash of the other day and the hand is progressively deflating and it doesn’t hurt anymore ”.
The sixth stage was therefore characterized by the strong break which arrived with over 7 minutes before the buch an sot ended up revolutionizing the GC. The Italian Valerio Conti is the new leader with a consistent advantage over the favorites for the final victory. The Slovenian Roglic is now 11th with a 5’24 “gap, while Vincenzo Nibali is 14th and Damiano Caruso 19th.
