Giro d'Italia: Thomas rues missed opportunity to pick up time in crosswinds
Giro d'Italia: Postlberger upsets the sprinters, takes first maglia rosa .. Giro d' Italia: Ewan angry and disappointed after missing out on first pink.2017 del 2017
Elia Viviani Team Sky had looked a shoo-in for Team Sky's Giro d'Italia squad but the Italian sprinter has been surprisingly left out, with the squad entirely built around the overall hopes of Geraint Thomas and Mikel Landa. Viviani, who is currently racing at the Tour de Romandie and chasing his first win of the season, told Cyclingnews that he was disappointed to miss the th edition of the race but that he fully understand the team's decision to support their GC ambitions with a climber-based team. I understand the tactic from the team. I wanted to be there but that's the decision. I'll do Tour of California and I go for stages there. It's the th edition and it's a special one to miss. This is the team's decision and we'll go per cent for Thomas.
As he pedalled towards the Team Sky bus following the third stage of the Giro d'Italia, Geraint Thomas was left with mixed feelings after coming through a tough, windy day with his GC options intact, but having missed out on a late split. Classics-stye racing in echelons is an in-house speciality for the Welshman, and Sky were on or near the front as the critical moment for the splits approached, around 12 kilometres to go on the exposed finale of the stage to Cagliari. But on this occasion a slight collision with another rider left Thomas too far back just as Quick-Step Floors made their final acceleration to go clear, and Thomas was unable to get past enough riders to make the split. I tried to bridge it, almost got across, but it was just too much. On the plus side, Thomas said, he had got through what was a difficult stage and three tough days in Sardinia unscathed. It's 15 or 20 seconds, which isn't much.
They say the Giro d'Italia breeds chaos like no other Grand Tour. In any case, the km leg from Alghero to Olbia, flat save for a trio of fourth-category climbs, was meant to end in a bunch kick and the pink the jersey on the shoulders of one of the peloton's fastmen. And it only got bigger, as Bennett urged his lead-out man to crack on over race radio. As he did so, the riders who everyone had been talking about enacted a somewhat futile sprint for second place, Ewan getting there ahead of Andre Greipel Lotto Soudal and Giacomo Nizzolo Trek-Segafredo — all no doubt bitterly disappointed. It worked out — victory for the team, first professional victory for me, maglia rosa. I think I will need many weeks to take this victory in.
The war years had been terrible, with many losses that had also affected the world of sports and tremendous destruction in the regions of Veneto and Friuli and poverty in the rest of Italy. In that sad period, the Gazzetta kept the cycling movement alive, organizing the Milano-Sanremo and Lombardy races and so it could not miss the appointment in The first act of the Giro was to go to Trieste and Trento , which had been won back from the Austrians. In these two cities, where it was given a triumphant welcome, Costante Giradengo raced by wearing the Champion of Italy jersey with the colours of the Italian flag, bearing the message of reconquered Italy. There were a lot of difficulties on the route because in the terrible years of the war, the roads had been abandoned to their fate and essential services were lacking everywhere. For example the Tagliamento River had to be crossed on foot, because there were no bridges, but luckily it was dry.
