In the hunting group, the wheat is separated from the chaff with about 30 kilometers left. Hamilton, Kelderman, Mollema and Nico Denz follow a few meters behind Buitrago. Van der Poel loses contact with Taaramäe. Denz is almost 30 meters behind the quartet of pursuers Hamilton, Kelderman, Mollema and Buitrago. Van der Poel seems to have exploded somewhat.

Giroticker, 12th stage: start attack

The breakaways are now starting to rise again. For the strong climbers like Mollema, Kelderman, Taaramäe or Hamilton it will be important to distance the strong sprinters like Van der Poel, Consonni, Vendrame and Ballerini at an early stage. But with two helpers in the group, it becomes difficult to distance Van der Poel decisively. Especially since the ascent to La Colletta should not be difficult enough.
