Giro d’Italia live in the ticker: 13th stage from Sanremo to Cuneo – new duel between escapees and sprinters

The 13th stage of the Giro will look very familiar to many fans and riders, because from the start in Sanremo at 13.35 today it goes along the sea to Imperia in the footsteps of the spring classic Milano – Sanremo, but without the climbs of Poggio and Cipressa.

The route then branches north, through a series of tunnels it then goes up the mountain classification to Colle di Nava.

It goes up 10.4 km with an average increase of 6.6% (3rd category). This will be the decisive test for the sprinters – in Sicily, Cavendish and Caleb Ewan fell victim to such an increase.

13. Giro stage: The favorites

With the early and rather hard climb, a similar scenario as the 5th stage in Sicily would be possible. Without Biniam Girmay, Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert would not have much interest in setting the pace. And Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) does not seem to be in top form, where he can certainly turn opportunities like this. Maybe the teams Fernando Gaviria (UAE-Emirates) and Giacomo Nizzolo (Israel-Premieretech) have an interest in sprint colleagues who are less strong in climbing, such as Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ), Mark Cavendish (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl)) or Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) to distance at an early stage. Otherwise, a normal sprint tape would be more likely.
