Giro d’Italia: Jai Hindley defeats Richard Carapaz at Passo Fedaia to capture pink jersey
Written by insideindyhomes

Stage 20 of the 2022 Giro d’Italia has reshuffled the cards ahead of Sunday’s grand finale.

Hindley goes into the decider of the time trial with a lead of 1:25 over Carapaz. The Australian laid the foundation for this starting position on the last climb of the penultimate section of the Giro.

On the last five kilometers up to the Marmolada, the Australian was helped by his German teammate Lennard Kämna. This pulled Hindley behind him and prepared him for the final attack on the overall lead.

This succeeded in an impressive manner and gave Hindley an optimal starting position. Carapaz seemed to have lost his strength in the last meters.

The 20th stage of the Giro d’Italia can be read here:

Goodbye

With that I say goodbye for today. Thank you for your interest in this live ticker. Tomorrow is the 21st and last stage on the program. I wish you a good evening – see you tomorrow!

In the end, Covi secured the day’s win. However, all eyes were on the Hindley-Carapaz duel. Hindley left the Ecuadorian on the final climb and secured the pink jersey. Carapaz is 1:25 behind the Australian ahead of Sunday’s final. Can he recover from this setback?

Carapaz can’t follow Kämna and Hindley! The Australian is now doing well and is already virtually in the pink jersey. What a final phase!

Giro ticker: Top group makes it exciting

Only Sivakov, Carapaz, Hindley, Landa and Carthy are still together. Who launches the final attack?

4 kilometers and 1:10 minutes separate the first two. In the field, meanwhile, Ineos Grenadiers takes command in the field.

Giro ticker: Covi goes to the last kilometers

Covi now goes on the steep last 5 kilometers. Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) attacks the favorite group. But there is not much left for the Frenchman to win. Meanwhile, Novak attacks Arensman and Ciccone! The Bahrain plan takes an unexpected turn!

Arensman increases the number of shots, Kämna and Leem bids pass. Novak, Ciccone and Arensman are currently tracking Covi. They quickly reduced the gap to 2:05 minutes.

20th Giro stage live: Buchmann is aiming for the top 10

Emanuel Buchmann (Bora – hansgrohe) still looks good. In the last 9 kilometers he should be able to defend his lead over eleventh overall. Recently it has become increasingly scarce for the German. However, Lennard Kämna can no longer keep up and will probably have to bury his dream of winning the day.

It actually looks more and more as if none of the pursuers would still be able to fight for the day’s victory. Covi extends his lead to 2:30 minutes.

Another 10 kilometers and Covi defends its lead over the pursuers. He still has 2:20 minutes. Ciccone increases the pace further back, but Formolo hangs on his rear wheel and thus demotivates his compatriot. Ballerini and Leemreize cannot keep up with Ciccone’s speed increase.

Stage 20 Giro d’Italia live: distances remain unchanged

In the last few minutes, the distances between them have hardly changed. The UAE driver takes a lead of 2:20 minutes on the pursuer nonet, from which Ballerini could not break away permanently.

Giro ticker: Covi is approaching the final climb

The duel between Covi and Poels has been going on for more than an hour. Surprisingly, the leader gained a good minute onto the field in that time. The Dutchman also doesn’t look like he’ll be able to drive much ahead of the field. 15 kilometers to go. We are approaching the final climb.

Giro ticker, 20th stage: Kämna group loses ground

Things are slowly getting critical for the chasing group around Lennard Kämna. She is now 2:15 minutes behind the leader. The field is just under four minutes behind them. There are still 20 kilometers to go, the final ascent is approaching, only a few kilometers downhill to the foot of Passo Fedaia. Wout Poels continues to work in the field for Landa and Bahrain.

Alessandro Covi (UAE) tries to get every second out of the descent. The eight pursuers with Lennard Kämna and the peloton take it a little less risky. With 30 kilometers to go, Covi has a lead of 1:50 minutes on the pursuers and 6:00 minutes on the field.

Covi is now the first to pass the highest point of the Giro here at Passo Pordoi, securing this special classification at 2239 meters. Great atmosphere with many fans here – still 44 kilometers to the day’s finish. The group around Kämna is around one and a half minutes behind the soloist from Italy, the field is almost six minutes behind.

Giro live, stage 20: 3:45 p.m. – 47 kilometers to go

Now Covi is 5:47 minutes ahead of the field. The Kämna group is 32 seconds behind the Italian. Pedrero has also joined the Kämna group. Covi is now almost a minute ahead of the sextet. Leemreize and Oomen are only a few seconds behind the group Kämna. So people don’t drive fast enough there. The man from Bremen is now also increasing the number of strokes a little.

New racing situation: Covi as a soloist in front, followed by five pursuers with Kämna, Novak, Arensman, Ciccone and Formolo. The rest of the once large top group is already well behind on the climb.

Bahrain continues to lead the pack, which is seven kilometers behind the leaders in this descent. Lennard Kämna now hands his rain jacket into the team car – otherwise he saves energy for either an attack towards the day’s victory or as a relay station for Jai Hindley in the final.

Favorites of the 20th Giro stage

Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) and Jai Hindley (Bora – hansgrohe) are separated by just three seconds. The man in pink is considered the better time trialist, so an attack is expected from the Australian. Third-placed Mikel Landa (Bahrain Victorious) is just 1:05 behind and still wants a say in the overall win. In addition, the riders from Team UAE like Davide Formolo are highly traded – and Vincenzo Nibali on his last Giro mountain stage.

20th Giro stage: The route to the mountain finish

Today is the last chance to gain ground before the final time trial. The final ascent at Passo Fedaia/Marmolada is 12.9 kilometers long and has an average of 7.8%. The last 5.7 kilometers in particular, which have an average uphill gradient of more than 10%, are extremely difficult. Before that, the Passo San Pellegrino and the Passo Pordoi have to be climbed.
