GIRO D’ITALIA. STAGE 13. SUPERB TEAMWORK IN THE NERVOUS FINALE.

The Spaniard Luis Leon Sanchez was for long at the front to help the team mates.

The thirteenth stage of the Giro d’Italia on the race book could have appeared as the easiest of the entire race but the weather condition took everyone on guard until the finish line. It was the wind that blown all along the 167 km from Reggio Emilia to Tortona, and the elevate risk of echelons and falls, that kept the tension on an high level in the stage finale.

The entire Team and the Spaniard Luis Leon Sanchez in particular did a great work to help the team mates, staying for a long time with the face on the wind at the front of the peloton, until the last 2 km.

Then it was an affair for sprinters, with the Colombian Fernando Gaviria at his fourth stage victory. Nothing has changed in the GC with Tanel Kangert 9th at 3:59 and Dario Cataldo 12th at 5:19. Tom Dumoulin kept the Leader’s Jersey.

“It was a strange stage – commented Tanel Kangert on the way of the hotel – where the wind played the protagonist role but also where nothing really happened before the final sprint.”

“I think many guys in the bunch are tired and for this reason probably everyone today payed attention not to waste energies – continued the Estonian – waiting for tomorrow uphill final to Oropa that, from my point of view, it might be as important as the Blockhaus has been for the GC.”

Tomorrow fourteenth stage of the Giro will start from the birthplace of Fausto Coppi, Castellania (the smallest start town in the history of the Giro with its 90 inhabitants…) and will end with uphill final to Oropa Monastery. The climbers and the GC contenders will have a good opportunity to challenge.
