Giro d’Italia live in the ticker – 6th stage for Scalea: Showdown of the sprint stars on the Mediterranean Coast

It’s sprint time in the Giro d’Italia right now. After yesterday, the fast men in Messina decided to win the stage among themselves, today’s 6th stage will also be a day for the sprinters.

The 192-kilometer-long section takes the field from Palmi to Scalea. Start is at 12.50. The route is almost completely flat, only in the beginning there is an increase of the fourth category. Possibly a chance for Lennard Kennan to secure more points for his mountain jersey.
After this, however, the sprinters are in demand. Two of them should be particularly motivated: Mark Cavendish and Caleb Ewan were left on the only mountain of the day yesterday and therefore had no chance of fighting for the victory in the final. Today they will fight back. Arnaud Démare, on the other hand, is hoping for his second victory in a row.
