A Arnaud Démare, triple stage winner in this 105th edition of the Giro d’Italia, only four stages separate him to get the second ciclamino jersey of his career. The Frenchman dominates the points classification (238) with full authority, practically doubling the numbers of his closest rivals in the table, Mark Cavendish (121) and Fernando Gaviria (117), so you only have to save the next few days without setbacks to ensure the precious garment.
Today, in addition, you will have the option of get the trump poker in this edition of the Italian round, except that Cavendish Y Gaviriahis main rivals before major sprinters like Caleb Ewan and Giacomo Nizzolo retired, prevent. Therefore, the 18th stage of this Giro will offer the last chance of victory to the sprinters with a practically flat route (152 km), with only two scoring points in the 4th category that will be far from the finish line.
Anything that is not a massive sprint would be an absolute surprise on a day in which the Colombian Gaviria, who has been close to victory in this Giro (twice 2nd, once 3rd and another 4th), will have his last chance to rediscover victory in his beloved Corsa Rosa, a race where he has shone the most and where he has not raised his arms since 2019. In passing, he would achieve the 50th victory of his career. I’m sure he’ll be excited.
