Andrea Vendram won the 12th stage of Giro d’Italia. He was part of a pioneering group of sixteen riders who had gained all the space of a peloton on the mountain stage to fight for the victory of the stage. In the final match, the Italian survived with three other knights and eventually turned out to be the strongest.
INEOS makes a lot of progress, and Bouchard takes a lot of points
In the foreground they did not care. As they entered one by one, they continued to attack the device. Interesting names like Rémi Cavagna, Peter Sagan and Davide Formolo also got into the discussions, but they didn’t get away. Only before the first boarding of the day – more than sixty kilometers later – fifteen passengers were able to escape. Their names: Natnael Tesfazion, Simone Ravanelli (Androni), Gianluca Brambilla (Trek-Segafredo), Mikkel Honoré (DQS), Chris Hamilton (DSM), Vincenzo Albanese (EOLO), Diego Ulissi (United Arab Emirates), Andrea Vendro Citron (AG2) ), George Bennett (Jumbo-Visma), Victor Campinaerts (Kubka Asus), Geoffrey Bouchard (AG2R Citroen), Giovanni Visconti (Bardiani), Nicholas Edet (Covidis), Simon Petteli (Intermarshi), Guy Neff (Israel) and Dries de Bondt (Albicin-Phoenix).
Peloton thought it was perfectly fine, under INEOS Grenadiers all climbers were quietly ridden. It was the perfect opportunity for Bouchard to take his mountain shirt more tightly around the shoulders in front. It is ranked first by all the columns, which will be admired in blue for the time being. The lead group also worked well, although many men had a hard time getting up. In fact, the status quo was there for a long time, until the last rally of the day. At the foot of Paso del Carneo, the contestants were twelve minutes ahead of the peloton. So they could make a bowl and place a card, the victory of the day was for them.
Vendrame skips a hiatus, only three stalkers
The last obstacle began at 23 kilometers from the end and it was Brambella who attacked first. The young Trek climber collapsed, with only five passengers able to hold on to his wheel: Hamilton, Bennett, Vendrami, Visconti and Edith. After Bennett tried, Vendrame hit a nice hole. With the Five Pursuits, Visconti and Edet faced a hard time, so natural selection continued. Vendrame is at the front, Bennet, Hamilton and Brambilla are close at the back. The top of the climb was 10.5 kilometers off the line, so nothing was lost to the chasers yet. Vendrame didn’t even reach the top on his own, as Hamilton hit just below the summit, thus ending up with the Italian AG2R.
The four were matched evenly, so they approached the summit of the final ascent together, and the other pursuers were definitely knocked out for D-Day. The rankings seemed to be taking a day off, but on the last climb Julio Cecone decided to attack. He received help from teammate Vincenzo Nepalese. However, Ineos the Grenadiers did not allow the two of them much space, and in the end it was Bernal who personally brought them back.
In the foreground, Bermabella, Bennett, Hamilton, and Vendrami came down together. The four couldn’t separate each other upwards, but the decision was made about the apartment. Bennett and Brambella were more involved with each other, so Vendram and Hamilton were able to drive two kilometers away. Then the two were allowed to run for victory. Vendrame was much faster on paper and it has appeared. The Italian started the enemy from the front with great confidence and defeated Hamilton with force majeure.
Most of the rankings came together behind the split. Nabali had arrived seven seconds ago. The Trek-Segafredo rider took the necessary stakes in the descent of the last climb and was narrowly rewarded at the end.
