Ewan hopes for a new stage victory: 'Finish is good for me'


Caleb Ewan was already the fastest in the sprint in the fifth stage and he can still smell his chances today.

"It is a very technical finish, with the small hill just before the end. I think this suits me well," he said about the last kilometers before the start.

At 1,800 meters from the finish, the riders reach a cunning 12 percent gradient and then a few right-angled bends and a road narrowing complete the final.

155 km to go -

The sprinter teams (Groupama-FDJ, Lotto-Soundal and Qhubeka ASSOS) already think it is a beautiful region and are going to take the lead.

As a result, the lead of the three leaders immediately starts to diminish slightly.

163 km to go -

The difference between the three leaders and the peloton increases in the east of Italy to just over five minutes.

It is also great to stay on the bike, because after a number of soaking wet days the sun is shining today.

The men in the peloton think it's enough for the time being.

The difference has now been almost four minutes.

    Preview Giro stage 7: Groenewegen hopes to sprint in difficult final

    a few seconds ago

    What kind of ride awaits Valter and his 220 colleagues?

    In all probability a sprinter stage, but we still have to keep an eye out for that.

    At about 1,800 meters from the finish, the riders reach a difficult slope of 12 percent and the road surface continues to slope slightly until the finish.

    A few right-angled bends and a narrowing of the road complete the final.

    a few seconds ago

    Yesterday it was not Egan Bernal or Remco Evenepoel but the 22-year-old Attila Valter who quite unexpectedly took off with the pink jersey.

    Today he is the first Hungarian ever to start in the leader's jersey of a stage of the Tour of Italy.
