The boss spoke

The Slovenian Tadej Pogacar (UAE), leader of the Giro d’Italia, analyzed the competition, which is already advancing in its second part.

“Everyone is happy that the breakaway worked. We rode easier and Bahrain had to push. They set a hard pace on the climb, so we no longer had control,” he said.

And he added: For me it was better that way. Some people say we have to share a piece of the pie, but sometimes you can’t win. “We also have to think about the next few days, the time trial and the queen stage at the end of the week.”

On the other hand, the team Visma lost its leader, who abandoned the race due to illness. A key loss, since he was within the top ten overall.

“The Giro will have to continue without the biggest smile from the peloton. We regret to inform that Cian Uijtdebroeks he is forced to abandon the race. Cian has not been feeling well in recent days and after yesterday’s stage he fell ill. We wish him a speedy recovery,” Visma reported.

The 21-year-old Belgian was fifth overall and was the best young man in the race. With his departure, Visma is left with the following men: the Hungarian Attila Valter, the Slovenian Jan Tratnik, the Italian Edoardo Affini and the Dutch Tim van Dijke.
