Asiago Stage

Asiago Stage

A plain stage the one that starts from Pordenone (which has already hosted 4 start lines and 2 finish lines in the history of the Giro) and that in the first 100 km are on relatively flat roads, at the foot of the Prealps in the province of Treviso (KOM at Muro di Ca’ del Poggio). After the intermediate sprint in Feltre the route climbs up Monte Grappa (24 km conquered in 2014 by Nairo Quintana and in 2010 by Ivan Basso), on narrowed roadway. The climb is steep and sharp at first, then the gradient declines, with a few changes in slopes before the categorised summit. A very long (26 km) and technical descent follows, […]

NON E’ UN KO, MA UNA VITTORIA AI PUNTI

NON E’ UN KO, MA UNA VITTORIA AI PUNTI

PIANCAVALLO: Ci aspettavamo il colpo del KO, in realtà c’è stata una vittoria ai punti. Per il colpo risolutore vedremo se bisognerà aspettare domani, o addirittura il piattone della Milano Monza. Dumoulin perde le ruote e arriva al traguardo con qualche secondo di troppo, 38 per l’esattezza. Ci pensa Nairo Quintana a vestirsi di rosa. Nibali è sempre vicino, 43” dalla rosa, così come Pinot, Zakarin e Pozzovivo. Guardiamo a domani: tappa pianeggiante che parte da Pordenone (già quattro partenze e due arrivi nella sua storia) e che per 100 km si snoda attraverso le pendici delle Prealpi trevigiane (GPM sul Muro di Ca’ del Poggio). Dopo il traguardo volante […]
