On Saturday, Giro d’Italia continued with a length of 170 km between Foggia-Guardia Sanframundi. According to its classification, not much happened in the first seventy kilometers of an average mountain section. In the second half of the distance, they attempt to escape, but only those riders who did not endanger first place in the Hungarian compound of Walther Attila.
On reaching the main square, the Groupama-FDJ rider finished the stage in 29th, but it took a lot of luck. The video below shows two of his rivals falling beside him in the most recent ascent. With a reflexive sign, Valtteri evaded the fact that her pink outfit was an asphalt gray in the blink of an eye.
Fortunately, however, he was left on two wheels, so Walther eventually kept his 11-second lead in the boat. The stage is the French rookie Giro Victor Lavaye (Covidis) won.
In the pink shirt’s 90-year history, Walther was the 166th contestant who wore the legendary shirt at least three times.
I found myself in the second set at the beginning of the stage, that was a mistake, but I didn’t feel nervous because there were knights like Bardet and Nibali running there and there was a lot to the end. I started cycling on the roads late, and I still need to improve my position in the field. Being able to wear the pink T-shirt helps a lot with that
Walter was quoted by Agence France-Presse as saying, who betrayed that of course he would keep the sophisticated first-line shirt for the next stage.
Hungarian Dina Marton Finished 118.
