Giro d’Italia – ST 19
May 11th – June 2nd
FRIDAY, 31 MAY 2019
Treviso>San Martino di Castrozza, 151km. Mountain.
“Going to the finish it was definitely a fast climb – explains Vincenzo Nibali – and therefore it was difficult to make the difference between the Top riders. In the last two kilometers the speed was high and apart from the attack of Miguel Angel Lopez the overall leaders controlled each other. My feelings are good and tomorrow who wants to win the Giro will have to invent something”.
Waiting for the last mountain stage, today in San Martino di Castrozza the Colombian Esteban Chaves won arriving solo among the splendid Dolomites. No change in the overall standings with only Lopez gaining 44s on the big contenders.
Tomorrow the stage will probably be decisive for the final victory with the ascent of Manghen Pass more than 20km with nearly 2000m in vertical altitude and after the Rolle Pass, over 20km long, and finally the 11km climb to Croce d’Aune.
