Tomorrow great challenge for the pink jersey

May 24, 2017

After the big effort of the Stelvio stage, won by our Vincenzo Nibali, today the top riders have been given a fairly quiet race won by the French Pierre Rolland.

 

“It was not a day anyway easy,” says Enrico Gasparotto, “because we have a lot of strain left in the legs yesterday and today we have faced several climbs at a “cheerful” pace.”

 

Tomorrow with the 18th stage from Moena to Ortisei, the Giro d’Italia 2017 comes in a very important phase. The queen stage across the Dolomites, indeed, takes 5 consecutive climbs with not even a single flat stretch in between: Passo Pordoi, Passo Valparola, Passo Gardena e Passo Pinei and the final climb Pontives. 

 

This stage has a drop of a little less than 4.000 m in 137 km with an average gradient of 7% and topping out at 15%. 

 

“It’s one of the last stages – says sports director Paolo Slongo – where we can try to earn important seconds on the two rivals Tom Dumoulin and Nairo Quintana.”

 

“They are roads – he added – that the boys know very well and have done so many times. We have come many frequently among these mountains for our training camp before the Grand Tour. ”
