Lucas Hamilton up to third overall at the ‘Baby Giro’

by CyclingTips

The ‘Baby Giro’, the U23 Giro d’Italia, is back in 2017 after a four-year absence and Chinese/Australian outfit Mitchelton-Scott that started the race as one of the favourites. Among the team’s big prospects for stage victories and the race overall is Lucas Hamilton. After three stages, the Victorian sits third overall.

Neilson Powless (Axeon Hagens Berman) won the opening stage to take the maglia rosa, the American young gun holding onto the lead through stage 2 as Belarusian Alexandr Riabushenko took victory.

Stage 3 saw a group of six riders go clear and finish the stage more than 90 seconds clear of the rest. The Ukraine’s Mark Padun won the stage ahead of Pavel Sivakov, while Hamilton was third. Hamilton’s teammate Jai Hindley was fourth, the West Australian moving up to fourth on GC as well.

Five stages remain in the 2017 Baby Giro (officially the Giro Ciclistico d’Italia), including an individual time trial and several days in the big mountains.
