Powless takes opening stage of Under 23 Giro d’Italia

by VeloClub

American rider Neilson Powless was best on stage one of the Under 23 Giro d’Italia, also known as the Girobio or Baby Giro. The Axeon Hagens Berman rider took the first leader’s jersey, finishing ahead of the Dutchman Bram Welten, the Italian Giovanni Lonardi and his Portuguese teammate Ivo Oliveira.

The stage was held in and around Imola, and sees the talented American rider follow up on past successes such as stages in the Tour de l’Avenir and Tour de Beauce plus ninth overall in the 2016 Amgen Tour of California.

The result will boost the morale of the American team, which has been struck by two losses. Chad Young and press officer Sean Weide both died in recent weeks, making it a very tough year for the squad.

The race continues on Saturday with a 145.8 kilometre stage in and around Castellarano.
