Procycling - - Debrief -

It’s usu­ally on Quick Step’s na­tive pan-flat Bel­gian roads we ex­pect to see the team show what they can do in the cross­winds, rather than in a sprint stage at the Giro. But as the race moved south and then west along the Sar­dinian coast to Cagliari, strong winds up to 60kph wreaked havoc to­wards the end of the stage. Rather than hes­ti­tate, Bob Jun­gels moved to the front at the first sign of ech­e­lons and ac­cel­er­ated, tak­ing Fer­nando Gaviria away in a small group with him. It was only a few sec­onds’ gap but it was enough to dis­tance the other sprint­ers and give the Colom­bian a clear view of the line and the win.
