17. Giro stage in the ticker: the top group splits

The leading group is now falling apart, the jumbo trio is ahead as well as van der Poel, Carthy, Martin, Rosa, Ciccone, Fortunato and Vansevenant. Ten riders gathered in the lead, right in front of the 15 pursuers. The field is now more than six minutes behind. With this, Jan Hirt almost climbs into the top 5 in the class in the overall ranking.

Giro live ticker: sprint for review

The 25 wrestlers come to the mountain classification and as expected the three top riders in the classification duel for the points. The Dutchman Koen Bouwman (Jumbo) in mountain jersey wins and surprises Giulio Ciccone (Italy / Trek), who comes in second.

It is only a short downhill and then the wave – but in the short descent, Santiago Buitrago (Bahrain) is doomed in a curve, the Colombian falls painfully here. However, Mikel Landa’s teammate can continue.

Live ticker for 17. Giro stage: decency is rising

The field now takes it a little easier, the gap grows to over four minutes. To the top it is now up to the climb, it climbs! Of the 25 escaped, a number of riders can almost only be seen at the end of the group, such as Carlos de la Cruz, who saves all his strength to perhaps later be able to help his captain Vincenzo Nibali.

Giroticker: the first climb is approaching

The first of today’s three mountain classifications is approaching – but it’s just a foretaste of the difficult chunks in the final. The mountain classification in Giovo at an altitude of 615 meters is 5.9 kilometers uphill with an average of 6.8%, including a ramp of 12%, which is followed by a short descent.

Giro live: 14.00 – 110 kilometers back

Now the sun is coming out again, Ineos is still in control of everything and keeps the difference to just over three minutes. The rain jackets have now been removed and handed over in the team vehicles. About 25 kilometers back to the first small climb of the day (3rd category). The first three riders in the climbing classification are all in the leading group, so this climb will not change much, but only the two big peaks in the stage final.

The distance between the breakaways and the field is now increased to three minutes, after the action-packed start phase it is now a little quieter. The Grupetto managed to catch up with the field, the weather is now again cloudy and slightly rainy in this part of the route. Team Ineos performs the follow-up work and manages the race situation.

The first hour’s race is over, and the average speed so far is almost 44 km / h. The leading group harmonizes well, but the gap remains constant during the journey through the Val di Sole in Trentino. Only the sun is missing, many motorists with gloves on the road.

Giroticker: 25 riders at the top

The leading group with its 25 drivers in an instant:
Felix Gall (AUT) and Nicolas Prodhomme (FRA / ag2r)), Hugh Carthy (GBR) and Andres Camargo (COL / EF), Alessandro Covi (ITA / UAE), Jan Hirt (CZE) and Rein Tarramae (EST / Intermarché) , Mathieu van der Poel (NED / Alpecin), Attila Valter (HUN / Groupama), Santiago Buitrago (COL / Bahrain), Filippo Zana and Luca Covili (ITA / Bardiani), Guillauma Martin (FRA / Cofidis), Simone Ravanelli (ITA ) / Drone Hopper), Lorenzo Fortunato and Diego Rosa (ITA / Eolo), Koen Bouwmann, Sam Oomen and Gijs Leemreize (NED / Jumbo), Antonio Pedrero (ESP / Movistar), Damien Howson (AUS / BikeExchange), Mauri Vansevenant ( BEL) / Quick-Step), Giulio Ciccone (ITA / Trek), Carlos de la Cruz (ESP / Astana) and Thymen Arensman (NED / DSM).

Giro live: 13:15 – 150 kilometers back

Now there is a merger at the top, about 25 riders there in total. No Germans there, but Felix Gall from Austria. There are no drivers from the Bora and Ineos teams, in the overall standings, Jan Hirt, yesterday’s winner, is best placed with a deficit of 7:42. The field is currently two minutes behind.

Stage 17 live in the Giro ticker: First climb completed

The drivers come across the Passo Tonale at almost 1900 meters altitude where there are no mountain points. The first riders around Hugh Carthy are now waiting for the descent for a larger group of pursuers, the field already a minute and a half later. At the top of the pass stands Bora team manager Ralph Denk himself, handing over his professional bottles!

17. Giro stage in the ticker: attack on the way

A group of four riders is now breaking off on the climb: Felix Gall (ag2r) from Austria, Britain’s Hugh Carthy (EF), Attila Valter (Groupama) from Hungary and the Dutchman Thymen Arensman (DSM). In the overall standings, Arensman is the best of them, 10:23 minutes behind the pink jersey. But the field is only a few seconds behind – today’s group is not yet set.

Giro live ticker: Start on the 17th stage

The riders will have to climb from the start today, right up to the Passo del Tonale at 1883 meters, an ascent of 8.7 kilometers. Why there are no mountain points there is something incomprehensible. Anyone who wants to achieve something today has warmed up for the role for this start … Now the race is over and the attacks begin!

Giro, 17th stage in the ticker: rain at the start

Today the Giro becomes a rain fight! Bad weather in the beginning, where the riders now line up. Temperatures are around ten degrees, rain jackets for all motorists and some with leg warmers today.
As always it starts neutralized, today there are 4.4 kilometers to the start of this 17th stage.

17. Giro stage: Today’s favorites

Passo del Tonale should probably make sure that a strong climbing group breaks out in the beginning. Maybe we’ll see Lennard Kennan (Bora-hansgrohe) again, but Lucas Hamilton (BikeExchange-Jayco) or Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) would also be candidates. Among the favorites, Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers), Jai Hindley (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Mikel Landa (Bahrain-Victorious) will stare at each other again – and duel.

Welcome to the live ticker on the 17th Giro stage!

Immediately after the start in the Ponte di Legno, it goes eight kilometers up to the Passo del Tonale, which mysteriously has not been given a mountain classification by the organizers. The next 70 kilometers are downhill before the ascent to Giovo (category 3: 5.9 kilometers; 6.8%) warns of an uneven stretch halfway through the stage. After 121 kilometers, the first sprint takes place in Pergine Valsugana. Immediately afterwards, it enters the smooth Passo del Vertirolo (1st category: 11.8 kilometers; 7.7%). The bonus seconds are awarded after 149 kilometers in Caldonazo.

The last ascent to Monterovene (1st category: 7.9 kilometers; 9.9%) has a 15% steep ramp 1.5 kilometers before the top. The first four kilometers after the mountain classification are still a bit uphill before following the four kilometer descent to the finish. Lavarone is finally reached after 168 kilometers of running distance.
