After Mads Pedersen, Magnus Cort (EF-EasyPost) also completed a hat-trick in this Giro. After a rain-soaked stage, Dane was faster than his ride mates Derek Gee (Israel-Premier Tech) and Alessandro De Marchi (Jayco-AlUla). The peloton fell flat after a chaotic stage. Geraint Thomas (Eneos Grenadier) is still captain.

Ride 10 in a nutshell:

  • Today’s winner: Magnus Cort Nielsen has a hat-trick. After his victories in the Tour and the Vuelta, he’s now also scored in the Giro. The Dane was the fastest of the leading group of three after a hard, rain-soaked day.
  • Today’s loser: There you go, the ambitions of Jay Vine GC. The 27-year-old UAE team’s shadow leader hit a wall on the descent of Paso delle Radici and would never reach the front of the race again. Damage: 11 minutes 19 seconds.
  • Great job: It was an amazing picture in the early stages of the match. Podium candidate Alexander Vlasov had to leave it immediately. What did you turn? The Bora-Hansgrohe leader was riding sickly and eventually also retired from racing.

  • tomorrow: The peloton will face a similar path tomorrow. The longest stage in this Giro – no less than 219 kilometers – is again 2,100 meters in elevation, but the bumps are less powerful than they are today. Is it up to the runners this time?

The platoon arrives at Kurt

show must go on.

And so today’s Giro peloton was left without leader Remco Evenepoel for the tenth stage. There was some skepticism about shortening the trip to 70 kilometers due to inclement weather, but after several Italian fives and sixs, the riders simply braved the pouring rain.

After a nervous attrition battle in the mountainous initial stage, a strong refugee quartet quickly formed with tastemaker Magnus Kurt Nielsen, Alessandro De Marchi, Derek Gee and mountain jersey Paes Davide.

A classic cat-and-mouse game ensued, but it was mainly colored by the overestimation and bizarre maneuvers of the peloton.

Fernando Gaviria let his team play the hangman in the mountainous preliminary stage, but eventually fell prey to his side’s blows. Bahrain-Victorious, in turn, tried to land it, but the spearhead, Jonathan Millan, also fell to the ground during the kamikaze movement.

The escapees – who had already left Pais in the meantime – laughed their sleeves off and finally pulled off in the last 10km with a one-minute lead.

Memories of the past flashed clearly through De Marchi’s head – still held by the peloton at the end of stage six – and this time he took no chances. The Italian played for a locomotive in the final kilometers and privately put Magnus Kurt in a seat.

He thanked the Dane for the perfect lap and cruised relatively easily to take his first Giro win. Thus Magnus Cort won three Grand Tour titles, previously winning the Tour and the Vuelta.

Sharpe was a Dane.

Kurt: “Probably the hardest day of my career”

“I’m very happy,” said Magnus Kurt, visibly exhausted. “It was a tough day in the rain and cold, probably one of the hardest days I’ve ever had on a bike. Winning is unbelievable.”

It was a messy ride. “I didn’t really know the state of the fares. My radio broke and I had very little information. The peloton kept chasing and we didn’t have much chance, but we pulled it off anyway. It was all worth it.”

Thomas: “Not a perfect day to wear pink”

“The conditions today were not ideal to wear the pink jersey,” says new leader Geraint Thomas, who accurately sums up the course of the race.

“The battle for sliding into the ride was hard right away, when we got to the top of the climb it was a bit chilly and we also had to watch out for the descent. So it was a solid race day.”

“So much has happened along the way, but I’m glad I did it. Now we have to look at it day by day. Anything is possible, especially with this weather. Every extra day in pink is just amazing for me.”

  1. 5 pm 13 game over
  2. 5pm 1pm Magnus Kurt is in the seat for the sprint to his first Giro victory. Can he complete his grand tour of triangulation? .
  3. 5 p.m. 11. Attack of the G! There goes Derek G. All or nothing. De Marchi can’t close the gap, but Cort Nielsen can. Then there were two of them…
  4. 5 p.m. 11. De Marchi appears to be playing for a locomotive in the leading group. Kurt and J seem to be pulling it off a bit smarter. .
  5. 5:10 p.m. The question appears: who can defeat Magnus Court? Another two kilometers. .
  6. 17:09 Suddenly it looks so good for Kurt, Guy and De Marchi. As long as they don’t start playing poker, they are playing to win today. The faction is silent. .
  7. 5:06 p.m. Meanwhile, more than fifty men don’t move to “platoon.” Trains will no longer be placed on the tracks with runners. & nbsp; .
  8. 5:04 p.m. If the refugees rush to victory, Magnus Cort appears to have the best chance. Dane has one last vicious shot to his legs. But do not underestimate the battle of attrition: De Marchi has already proven that he is made of steel and Derek Gee continues to make an excellent impression. .
  9. 5:02 p.m. Nibble, nibble, snuggle: 10k, 45sec. here we go again. Will the peloton continue to catch escapees, or does the attacking trio still have a chance to win the day? .
  10. Zampanini criticized. Edoardo Zampanini slides on the slippery road surface and crashes ten kilometers from the finish. Jumbo-Visma’s Thomas Gloag can no longer avoid the Italian and is looking to the grass side. They both get back on the bike. . 4:55 p.m.
  11. 4:49 p.m. That Derek G is strong. The Israel-Premier Tech rider makes fellow escapees shriek and nod firmly on the final downhill metres. The trio has another minute bonus for defense. Another 18 kilometers around the clock. .
  12. 4:43 PM De Marchi flashback? He does not have mercy on the jirou fleeing from him. With 20km to go, a few hidden altimeters still await the attacking trio. It wouldn’t be for Alessandro De Marchi, would it? During the sixth stage from Naples to Naples – a day after the attack – the dashing sprinters still held it while the line was in sight. .
  13. 4:31 p.m.
  14. 4:31 p.m. Game within a game. Two and a half minutes behind the peloton, the UAE team guys are working hard. The team tries to bring one of its leaders back into the fight with Jay Vine – who has fallen. Kaden Groves is also on Platoon 2 and hopes Mission: Impossible will succeed. .
  15. + 2’12” to Kurt and his team mates. Kurt, De Marchi and Guy are in a strong position against the peloton. The trio is still hanging on two minutes ahead of the peloton. Can they hold on for another 40km? Segafredo, Astana, Soudal-Quick Step and Bahrain-Victorious found each other in stalking.
  16. 4:20 p.m.
  17. Bettiol roared. Amnesty International, Amnesty International, Amnesty International. It just doesn’t stop at the nervous tenth stage. & nbsp; Lukas Pöstlberger crashes and soon someone from the team car runs to the rider’s aid. My mechanic wanted to put a bike up against the wall, but he wasn’t interested in rushing Alberto Petiol (EF-EasyPost). The Italian hit the crossing man and missed the fight. & nbsp; . 4 m 13.
  18. 4:02 p.m. Cavendish is back in action. What do we get now? Suddenly the road surface dries up and the rain remains in the clouds. Mark Cavendish also revives again and then rejoins the peloton. With Astana, the sprinter’s teams already have one more ally in their pursuit. .
