(Cassano d'Adda, 25 May 2016 – Press Giro d'Italia) In the pure style of a pursuiter with a strong track background, Roger Kluge, who is set to represent Germany at the Rio Olympics in the Omnium (against Italy’s Elia Viviani and Colombia’s Fernando Gaviria, among others), took a splendid victory, anticipating the bunch sprint to take his first stage win in a Grand Tour. Maglia Rossa Giacomo Nizzolo, second, made the podium for the thirteen time of his career at the Giro d’Italia but he’s yet to win a stage. Dutchman Steven Kruijswijk retained the Maglia Rosa.

(Andalo, 24 May 2016 – Press Giro d'Italia) Alejandro Valverde took his first ever stage win at the Giro d’Italia in style, outsprinting Steven Kruijswijk and Ilnur Zakarin in a demanding stage finish at Andalo. In an extremely hard-fought stage averaging 44.270km/h, despite lumpy terrain, the Dutchman took his third straight second place but, more importantly, increased his overall lead over arch-rivals Esteban Chaves, who fought hard to regain position, and Vincenzo Nibali, who lost contact with the front of the race after starting the hostilites early on.

(Cividale del Friuli, 20 May 2016 – Press Giro d'Italia) Last-minute Giro starter Mikel Nieve, who stepped in for Sergio Luis Henao, made up for Team Sky’s disappointment after the loss of their captain Mikel Landa to illness by winning stage 13, five years after his first stage win at the Giro d’Italia. In the Maglia Rosa, Bob Jungels rode with intelligence and courage but, when he was dropped on the last climb, an opportunity opened for Andrey Amador to make Costa Rica the 24th different nation to lead the overall classification of the Corsa Rosa.

mai 18, 2016

(Asolo, 18 May 2016 – Press Giro d'Italia) Attacks by the GC contenders on the only climb of stage 11 paved the way for a brilliant move by the race leader Bob Jungels. Wearing the Maglia Rosa, the Luxembourger chased down second-placed Andrey Amador, whose acceleration posed a threat to the top of the general classification. Diego Ulissi then bridged the gap to the attacking duo, and his fast finish brought him his second stage win of this 99th Giro d’Italia.
