Ulissi wins again on Giro d’Italia stage 11, Jungels strengthens lead

by CyclingTips

Joining a dangerous two man break inside the final five kilometres and then sprinting powerfully to the line, Diego Ulissi clocked up his second stage win of this year’s Giro d’Italia on the streets of Asolo.

The Lampre-Merida rider beat Andrey Amador (Movisar) and race leader Bob Jungels (Etixx-QuickStep), with the latter riding brilliantly on his first day in pink. The trio finished 13 seconds over a group containing the bulk of the general classification contenders, with Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek-Segafredo) leading those chasers home.

Missing from the pursuit were past Maglia Rosa Gianluca Brambilla (Etixx-QuickStep) and Domencio Pozzovivo, who had started the day 6th and 11th overall respectively. However they were delayed in a big crash inside the final hour. Both chased hard but were unable to get back on terms by the finish.

Another big name suffering was former race leader Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin), who finally admitted defeat in his battle against saddle sores and withdrew from the race.

Ulissi also won stage four and was delighted to be topping the podium again.

    Rococorba! Did I miss that yesterday?

    How long are riders out for a collar bone? Will Kennaugh be fit for TdF?

    • Bex

      same, i just noticed that today as well.

    • Dave

      Often around 4-6 weeks before getting back on the bike, and a few more weeks before being at full strength.

      If he goes to the Tour, it would be his first race back and Sky would be carrying him through the first week or so. With Sky’s plans for the Giro having gone to hell when it turned out Landa responds to a rest day just as well as Porte did, perhaps there’s a domestique on the Giro squad who could DNS/DNF tonight for a couple of weeks worth of recovery before taking Kennaugh’s place in the pre-Tour warmup races?

    Well as the song goes you take your comfort where you find it. My viewing of the Gibraltar climb confirmed yet again that there a lot of unoriginal limelight seekers in stupid outfits who show no respect to the riders and narrowly avoid getting hit by the motos. Why can’t they just clap and stand back like any reasonable person would? It doesn’t add colour just insane movement.

  • Dave

    The ToC stage results showing are those for yesterday morning, not today.

    • Neil_Robinson

      when they write/publish ToC isn’t finished for the day.

      • Dave

        My mistake, it was actually the results of Tuesday morning’s stage 2 showing underneath the report relating to yesterday morning’s stage 3.

        Either way, it’s still out of sync by one day.
