Another 33 km

- Giovanni Visconti takes no points for the mountains classification today and also has to give up his blue mountain jersey to Ruben Guerreiro.

Visconti has a hard time, because together with Arnaud D茅mare, his backlog is more than 21 minutes.

Giro d'Italia 19 minutes ago

Another 39 km

- Another small kilometer to the top of the Passo Durone.

It is a climb from the third category and there are therefore not many mountain points to be reached.

Guerreiro is also no longer in the leading group, so who takes the points here is not very relevant.

Villella has now joined again, so that the leading group now consists of ten riders.

42 km to go

- The group of pursuers has grown to nine riders: De Gendt, Vanhoucke, Carretero, Cataldo, O'Connor, Gebre, Dennis, Pernsteiner and Zakarin.

Another 57 km

- The teams of Sunweb with Wilco Kelderman and Deceuninck-Quick-Step with Jo茫o Almeida are meanwhile still keeping themselves calm in the peloton, which is seven minutes behind.

In the final phase of the stage, the finish climb to Madonna di Campiglio is still on the program.

Will that perhaps still generate fireworks?

Another 141 km

After all, there are forty points waiting there.

The Giro d'Italia will start in Bassano del Grappa in a few minutes.

Wilco Kelderman is seventeen seconds behind classification leader Jo茫o Almeida in the general classification.

Is the Dutch able to take over the pink jersey from the Portuguese today?
