Nieve wins stage 13 of Giro d’Italia as Amador takes over Maglia Rosa

by Shane Stokes

Mikel Nieve gave Team Sky something to smile about after what had been a very tough Giro d’Italia, winning stage 13 of the race with a super solo ride to Cividale del Friuli.

The Spaniard was part of a move that pushed ahead inside the final 35 kilometres. He and Joe Dombrowski (Cannondale) pushed forward on the climb of Cima Porzus, with Nieve topping the summit alone and time trialing to the final ascent, that of Valle.

Giovanni Visconti (Movistar) did what he could to bridge on that climb but Nieve had a 47 second advantage at the summit. With just 13.1 kilometres left from there, he had a strong chance of taking the stage and indeed held on all the way to the line.

He reached it 43 seconds ahead of a disappointed Visconti, while Vincenzo Nibali outsprinted Alejandro Valverde for third, one minute 17 back.

Crucially, race leader Bob Jungels had been dropped on the final climb. Despite a furious chase the Luxembourger rolled in too far back. Andrey Amador (Movistar) had started the day second overall, just 24 seconds off pink. While he too was dropped on that final climb, he was able to rejoin the Nibali/Valverde group on the descent and thus took over the race lead.

    Finding it strange to have a daily news edition on the weekend. Think I’ll adjust though. Great work guys :)

      I could just about cope with the Felt track bike’s left hand side drivetrain if it came in a normal weekday Rocacorba, but to have it posted on the weekend is just taking it too far. I’ll be a nervous wreck for the rest of the day.

      :-)
