a few seconds ago

The battle for the stage victory seems to be at the front between the team, but will we also have a battle in the top of the general classification?

Rosette wearer Egan Bernal and his team INEOS are currently at the front of the peloton.

a few seconds ago

Another 95 km 

- More than 20 kilometers before the leading group arrives at the first gravel strip.

Given the wide lead, thirteen minutes on the peloton, there is a very good chance that one of these eleven front runners will become today's stage winner.

a few seconds ago

In 2010 Montalcino, today's finish, was already the setting for a historic Giro stage full of rain and mud, in which Vincenzo Nibali lost his pink jersey and Cadel Evans won the stage.

Are we going to get such a spectacle again today?

Last time in Montalcino ... L'ultima volta a Montalcino ... #Giro
