SETTIMANA COPPI E BARTALI: A DAY ON THE ATTACK

To attack it was a keyword. As we lost on yesterday’s stage Jakub Mareczko the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia didn’t have any chance and, directed by Luca Scinto and Serge Parsani, has spiced up the stage that was considered the easiest at Settimana Coppi e Bartali.

Jacopo Mosca was attacking already at the beginning of the stage and then, once he was caught by the peloton, he tried again together with Marco Coledan bridging to the original attempt of Remy Di Gregorio, Michal Paluta, Dimitri Peyskens, Peter Williams and Christofer Jurado who had already 2′ on the peloton after 40 kms.

Inside Crevalcore’s circuit, Coledan and Mosca were brought back in the pack with 35 kms to go when, due to the wind, the bunch splitted with 41 riders, adding Turrin and Busato to the original two escapees, who were going to fight for the stage win.

The bad luck was stopping Busato and Coledan, who were both involved in a crash with 2,5 kms to go and they couldn’t battle for the stage that went to the rider from Team Sky Cristopher Lawless with Turrin in 8th place and Mosca, who has won the intermediate sprints classification, in 11th place.

In the general classification big improvement for Turrin, 10th, and Busato, 13h, before the time trial that will close the Settimana Coppi e Bartali with the hard climb of Monte Gibbio that is gonna decide the final winner
