Oh, the drama! Nibali takes stage win, Kruijswijk crashes, plummets to third overall as Chaves moves into pink at Giro d’Italia

by Neal Rogers

It’s not over until it’s over.

It’s a cliché, but is a cliché for a reason, and it was proven true Friday on Stage 19 of the Giro d’Italia, where the general classification was completely upended in one of the most dramatic days of Grand Tour racing in recent memory.

At a Giro that seemed to have its GC winner decided with only three stages remaining, a mountain stage that included the climb over the Colle dell’Agnello, this year’s highest pass at 2744 metres (9000 feet), and the uphill finish at Risoul in France, changed everything.

There were tears from stage winner Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), who has struggled throughout this Giro but suddenly found form in the final days to take the stage win and ride his way into second overall.

There were tears from new race leader Esteban Chaves (Orica-GreenEdge), who at age 26, became only the third Colombian in history to wear the race leader’s Giro d’Italia.

There were tears from former race leader Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNL-Jumbo), who crashed heavily into a snow bank on the descent of the Colle dell’Agnello. Though he was able to remount, the Dutch rider was isolated, and watched his dream of becoming the first Dutchman to win the Giro evaporate.

And there, were no doubt, tears from Russian Ilnur Zakarin (Katusha), who crashed further down the Colle dell’Agnello, and abandoned his fifth-place on the classification due to a broken collarbone.
