Nizzolo, distributed by Łukasz Wiśniowski, was ahead of compatriot Edoardo Affini (Jumbo-Visma) and Slovakian Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe).
Aveni tried to surprise his rivals by attacking 500 meters from the finish line. He obtained more than ten meters in advantage and only Nizzolo could defeat him.
At the end of the stage, aside from Wiśniowski, Maciej Bodnar was also visible, taking part in the “train” that dispenses Sagan.
This is Giro’s first stage win by 32-year-old Nizzolo, the current European champion. The runner from Milan is participating in this race for the eighth time and has been in the lead many times. Second … 11 times, including two stages of this year’s edition. He scored twice a point rating, wearing a cyclamen jersey for the best runner at the end of the race. Sagan is riding there right now.
– finally. Above all, I wanted to avoid the blockage because I felt I had good legs and could finish. It was hard to catch Avini. He made a pretty impressive number – said Nizzolo at the finish line.
Nothing has changed at the front of the overall rating. Bernal still has a 45-second advantage over Russian Alexander Vlasov (Astana Premier Tech) and 1.12 seconds over Italian Damiano Caruso (Bahrain’s victor).
A very challenging mountain stage is planned for Saturday with the finish line at Monte Zoncolan in the Carnic Alps. In the final kilometer the slope is 14.5% the weather will not help cyclists. Weather forecasters expect rainfall and temperature above 3-5 ° C.
