We have skilled a hiccup in our dwell protection, apologies for that. Hopefully this web page will probably be in full working order.
Stage 14 dwell protection – first half
We have missed McNulty put in a shocking journey to 3rd on the end. He completed 1:09 down on Ganna and can acquire locations as we speak.
In the meantime, João Almeida is having an ideal journey too. He is fourth on the second checkpoint and may acquire time on all of his GC rivals.
Vincenzo Nibali had a sluggish begin however is gaining on lots of his rivals.
Some instances on the third checkpoint.
Majka, Masnada 32:19
Konrad, Hindley 32:55
Kelderman has swept by means of with a time of 31:33 although. He is positioning himself as an enormous GC favorite right here.
That is 39 seconds on Nibali and extra on Fuglsang, Pozzovivo and the remaining.
Nibali involves the end. His time of 45:34 is nice for twentieth to this point.
He is quicker than Fuglsang (45:53), Masnada (45:40), Konrad (46:11), Hindley (46:19).
McNulty has gained 1:45 on Nibali although. The younger American lay eleventh at 2:45 behind Almeida initially of the day. He is going leap proper up the standings.
Pozzovivo heads to the end now. It is a good time for the Italia, who appears to be like to be within the type of his life on this Giro d’Italia.
The flea from Policoro sheds simply seven seconds to Nibali. A high journey from the NTT man.
This is a have a look at Almeida out on target. He is set to achieve on each GC man however McNulty as we speak.
Pello Bilbao races to the road. His time of 45:33 places him a second up on Nibali.
Lower than a minute between Bilbao, Nibali, Pozzovivo, Fuglsang, Majka and Masnada. McNulty, Kelderman and Almeida would be the massive winners right here.
A reminder that Bilbao’s twentieth place is 2:53 down on Ganna’s beautiful stage-winning journey.
44:27 for Kelderman on the line, good for eighth place. That is a minute-plus on his rivals Nibali, Fuglsang, Pozzovivo and the remaining.
Simply Almeida to complete now, and he will take time on everybody together with Kelderman.
Almeida finishes with a time of 44:11, sixth on the stage. We anticipated him to take time and he is duly achieved so. An ideal journey from the teenager.
A 3rd stage win for Filippo Ganna as we speak, although. One other dominant journey by the Italian.
This is what Ganna needed to say after the end…
“Each victory is essential for me and on this Giro we have now seen w have a very robust staff, we win in every single place and we’re actually blissful.
“Within the begin I believe ‘okay we have now 1km [climb]’ however it’s 5 minutes of climbing and not likely straightforward. However after the climb the legs had been actually good, getting higher and higher and I end simply to verify to cross the road.
“We are saying to avoid wasting vitality to reach in Milan [for the time trial]. But additionally do not have an excessive amount of chilly and attempt to go higher and higher and save vitality. We’ve got another race because the objective.”
Right this moment Almeida gained 16 seconds on Kelderman, 1:06 on Majka, 1:22 on Bilbao, 1:23 on Nibali, 1:30 on Pozzovivo, 1:42 on Fuglsang. He’ll be very pleased with that.

This is a have a look at the brand new total standings.
1 João Almeida (Por) Deceuninck-Quickstep 54:28:09
2 Wilco Kelderman (Ned) Crew Sunweb 0:00:56
3 Pello Bilbao (Spa) Bahrain McLaren 0:02:11

That is a seven-place leap for McNulty. Majka good points two locations, whereas Masnada good points one.
Pozzovivo, Konrad and Hindley drop three locations as Fuglsang drops two to twelfth.
With the summit end of Piancavallo developing tomorrow, we’ll little question see a lot of these names go on the offensive in opposition to Almeida and Kelderman.
At Etna, the Dutchman gained time on his GC riders, together with 23 seconds on Almeida. On Roccaraso he was the highest finisher as soon as once more, placing time into all however Fugslang, together with 18 seconds on Almeida.
I might say that Kelderman is the brand new GC favorite then, with Almeida anticipated to shed time on the even more durable mountain phases over the approaching week, and the Dutchman having fun with a pleasant cushion of 1:34 to Nibali, with extra time separating him from Pozzovivo, Majka and Fuglsang.
This is what Almeida needed to say after as we speak’s stage, in any case…
“I’m so pleased with the outcomes, and I believe ultimately it was a really constructive day.
“I began actually stable. On the finish of the Poggio the whole lot was going as deliberate. After that I used to be struggling a bit of bit for a couple of kilometres however ultimately within the final climb I used to be feeling good. I went deep as a result of I knew ultimately it was a bit extending. [I didn’t take any risks] on the descents as nicely within the corners so perhaps I misplaced a bit of bit there, however ultimately I assumed it was tremendous good.
“I used to be anticipating to perhaps [gain] instances to some [GC contenders] however not the entire them, particularly Kelderman – he is a very good TT man. I’m actually, actually shocked with this.”
