Africa raised its hand pink race, For the first time, a rider from that continent wins a stage of the Giro d’Italia. Eritrea Biniam Girmay (aged 22) put his strength and top speed on Jesse’s goal in a spectacular 30-unit sprint.

Magnificent page in the Golden Book of Cycling, signed by a runner-born in Eritrea’s capital Asmara, located at an altitude of 2,500 meters above sea level. Geographical conditions that favor the practice of effort sports, such as cycling or athletics. Girmay was fortunate enough to be able to leave his country and train at the World Cycling Centre, which was managed by the UCI in Aigle (Switzerland). In his first trials as a youth he stood Ramco Evenpoel. His international baptism came this year with his victory at Ghent-Wevelgen, a very tough cobblestone classic. On this Tuesday he arrived at his consecration in a beautiful struggle with van der poela, The Dutchman pressed on with normal energy, but gave in to the African’s push with 20 meters to go.

Juanpe Lopez A very tough phase continues. The first 10 classified in the general classification are separated by a fare of only 1.22 minutes.

Girme crowned a rough day, with the final section dotted with slides, with hardly any flat sections. An area on the coast of the Adriatic, with a slight slope, but inconvenient for sprinters. Arnaud Demare, mark cavendish You Caleb Evan He succumbed to momentum set by van der Poel’s Alpesin and Girme’s Intermarché.

The break after the break began with the lead role of a trio of stage-turned-adventures Mattia Baiso (relentless in aiming to escape doomed to failure), Lawrence Neesen You alessandro de marchic, who jumped 15 kilometers after an early signal in Pescara and took a lead of more than six minutes. De Marchi was the one who extended the rope the most, being neutralized at 17 minutes from the finish line. This is where the dance began in the leading position on the ascent of the fourth grade port of Monsano, which became the Hornet’s Nest. with a crowd of Carapazzi, pozovivo, yates, nibalik, bardet and van der Poel. Always well kept within the small cohort with Juanpe López. A madness that ended with only a thousand meters to go, when Girme and Van der Poel closely marked each other and went on to win without opposition from the rest.

Immense joy to Girmay on the day of tribute Michele Scarponi, who died on April 22, 2017 when he was hit by a van during training, near his home in Filotano, where the race pass took place this Tuesday. Astana team riders brought water bottles with the portrait of Frankie Parrot, in memory of the Italian, the mascot of the late winner of the Giro d’Italia in 2011 and Tirreno Adriatico in 2009. No one likes his heroes and takes care of Giro.
