Giro Next Gen / Giro de Italia U23
Stage 3: Priocca ‚Äď Magenta (146 km)

The prediction, the most feasible resolution, necessarily involved a volata. In Italy, the art of the mass sprint has a touch of art and veneration. Skill is valued in a crowded finish. In this Tuesday’s Magenta finish in the Giro Next Gen, the prediction was fulfilled and it was the American Luke Lamperti (Trinity Racing) who imposed his top speed. The sprint closed a day of very high average (over 46 km/h), commanded until the final kilometre by the last persevering rider (Enzo Leijnse; Devo Team DSM) of a breakaway of five riders in a breakaway since the first third of the day and with a maximum time guarantee of over seven minutes.

For the EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team quintet, a good day. A day with its stalks and its dangers saved with hardly any incidents beyond some inopportune puncture. Andrea Montoli explains about the stage: “Yes, today we had a flat day ahead of us, but it was also a bit nervous because we had to ‘file’ a lot and it was essential to know how to stay ahead. We were always very close together. Towards the end we had to be attentive to avoid crashes and to be able to save the day. It was also a very emotional stage because it was close to my home and many of my friends came to cheer us on from the side of the road”.

From the Padana plain in the journey from Piemonte to Lombardy, this Wednesday will take us deep into the Lombardy mountains to enter the Valtellina and face the giant Stelvio. A finish line at an altitude of 2,758 metres after more than thirty kilometres of hard climbing from Bormio. From the eternal flat to the infinite slope. A crucial day in the Giro Next Gen.
