Giro d’Italia lives in the ticker | Stage 11 as a chance for sprinters – Cavendish, Ewan and Dé, are in a duel after Girmay-Aus

The 11th stage of the Giro d’Italia 2022 is tailor-made for the sprinters: At 203 flat kilometers from Santarcangelo di Romagna to the finish in Reggio Emilia, the breakaways have little chance.

The section is all about Parmigiano Reggiano, which the organizers have dedicated this day to.

The route runs from east to west from the coast parallel to the A 14 motorway in the direction of Bologna and then in an arc around Modena to the finish. There the field could be broken up into groups by the wind.

Giro live ticker: The last kilometers

There are four kilometers to go and De Bondt has 14 seconds left. Of course, the sprint teams are able to close this gap quickly. But with the tailwind of the last five kilometers, one should not underestimate De Bondt either.

16:35 – 12 kilometers left: De Bondt extends his lead

Now De Bondt can even increase his lead to 30 seconds. The Belgian stubbornly defends himself against his competitors. The silence before the storm still reigns in the field.

Giro live ticker: The field is catching up

De Bondt is only 17 seconds ahead with 25 kilometers to go. His escape will not last much longer. Tobias Bayer (Alpecin) and Davide Cimolai (Cofidis) are involved in a fall while crossing a city. Both have to switch machines, but can continue.

Things are slowly getting more nervous in the field. Several teams are trying to place themselves in front.

16:00 – 38 kilometers back: Feld stays alert

With an average of 46 km / h, motorists are fast on the road. On the last 15 kilometers they had to pick up a gear again. The goal will probably be reached shortly before 17.00. The soloist has a lead of only 35 seconds, you do not let him go, winning the stage is too coveted.

Dries De Bondt (Alpecin) has become too slow. The former Belgian champion stands out as a soloist from the field. There he is allowed to do something preliminary. De Bondt quickly extends his lead to one minute. There are still 52 kilometers left. There is still no organized tracking work in the field.

15:30 – 70 kilometers back: Short break

The race is again a little calmer. In six kilometers, there is another small change of direction that motorists could benefit from. The drivers take the opportunity to eat again. The atmosphere in the field is currently quite relaxed.

Quick-Step is now trying to open an edge. But they can not stretch the field in this place yet. The pace remains extremely high, it can start again at any time.

11th stage in the ticker: Wind readiness in the field!

The wind is coming right now from the right backwards with a fresh 29 km / h and is pushing the field hard. At the end of the field, the first motorists lose contact. Caleb Ewan is among them.

But to create a larger wind edge, the angle of the incident wind is still too acute. This may soon change, as the route then makes a small change of direction to the northwest and the wind then comes from the right side.

The Giro is now halfway through its kilometers – but today without the great excitement. It is expected to be a quiet day.

13:30 – 155 kilometers back: distance stable

The difference is now equalized at 4:30 minutes, so the Italo duo in front have little chance of a coup today. In the field, Cofidis, Movistar and Groupama-FDJ are at the forefront, but there is still a casual talk. Incidentally, no mountain classifications today, only the two mandatory intermediate sprints.

Giro route: course & profile of stage 11 – day for the sprinters

Welcome to the 11th Giro stage!

The 203 kilometers between Santarcangelo di Romagna and Reggio Emilia are completely flat. There are only 480 altitude meters to complete. The first sprint is held after 76 kilometers in Toscanella di Dozza. Second sprint classification awaits after 126 kilometers in San Giovanni in Persiceto. At the last kilometer of Reggio Emilia, the home track bends twice to the left. These changes of direction will probably be implemented without brakes.

After yesterday’s hilly stage, the pure sprinters get the chance again this time. For riders like Arnaud Démare (GFC), Mark Cavendish (QST) or Fernando Gaviria (UAD) there are not so many options left on this ride. Therefore, the pressure is increasing to be able to note yet another stage success.
