May 17/17 17:38 pm - Giro d'Italia: Stage 11

Posted by Editoress on 05/17/17

Spain's Omar Fraile (Team Dimension Data) was the man of the day in the Bartali stage from Florence to Bagno di Romagna as he attacked from far out with his compatriot Mikel Landa (Team Sky) and again with Pierre Rolland (Cannondale-Drapac Pro Cycling Team) to eventually outsprint the Frenchman, former world champion Rui Costa (UAE Team Emirates) and the 2016 Abu Dhabi Tour winner Tanel Kangert (Astana Pro Cycling).


Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) retained the Maglia Rosa with the same margin from Nairo Quintana (Movistar Team) the day after the Dutchman's time trial domination. Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain - Merida) and Thibaut Pinot (FDJ) attacked on the last climb, but with no major success.


Omar Fraile said: “I had marked this stage for a long time. In the past few days, I was thinking of today. When we rode away with Mikel Landa, I thought it was crazy. As we got caught, I took the right rhythm. Later with [Pierre] Rolland, I knew via the radio that Rui Costa was coming across and that he’d pay for his effort. I was in the right wheel for the sprint and I was confident in my speed to win the stage.”

The Maglia Rosa Tom Dumoulin said: “The stage went like we expected. It was hard with a lot of fights on the first climb to get in the break, but we never stressed. With Laurens [ten Dam] in the front, I felt protected. The gap I have on GC gives more room to play with. My adversaries are the ones who have to make up a lot of time on me in the mountains, so the pressure is on them, not on me. I don’t know all the climbs, I know the Mortirolo and the Stelvio since I had a training camp in Livigno in 2015, but we have the climbs on video and I’m not scared.”


Michael Woods (Cannondale-Drapac Pro Cycling Team) was top Canadian in 53rd at 4:27 back. Woods is still top Canadian in GC, 24th at 18:46 back.
