Agliè > Oropa (Biella), 183km.
Showdown of the best climbers on the selective ramps of the ascent to Oropa. As expected this year’s ‘Gran Piemonte’ was a race for climbing specialists and saw the triumph of Egan Bernal.
Andrea Garosio was Team Bahrain Merida best-finisher, taking 18th place: “It was a very tough finale. The pace was very high and I could stay with the leading group until 3km to go. Then Team Ineos’ riders attacked and the group split. I tried to stay with the first chase group and lost only some positions in the last few hundred metres. It was a good test for my next race ‘Il Lombardia’. I’m feeling good and I aim to give good support to my teammates on such an important race”.
