Nibali third at the foot of Mont Blanc
Vincenzo Nibali is third in Courmayeur and thanks to this result he moved up to third place in the overall classification led by stage winner and new pink jersey by the Ecuadorian Richard Carapaz.
Second mountain stage and great challenge among the big favorites. “We tried to make the difference on the hardest climb, the San Carlo – explains Vincenzo Nibali – but we didn’t succeed. With today’s third place I gained 4 seconds and even if I am not many it was important to sprint to reward the work of the whole team “.
“This morning I had no super sensations but then I was fine and so I tried to make selection. Tomorrow another insidious stage and we expect another hard day with the finish line in Como with the same finale of Il Lombardia”.
Great race also for Damiano Caruso who gave a great help to the captain: “Today I was feeling very well and I am very satisfied with my stage. Even today there has been battle and we have not pulled back. Now it will always be like this and we will have to take care of every detail and interpret our opponents’ maneuvers in the best possible way “.
