Through the Valle di Cembra it goes wavy for the next 25 kilometers, then the first intermediate sprint of the day follows at the foot of the second and penultimate mountain of the day.

17th Giro stage in the ticker: the top group divides

The leading group is now falling apart, the jumbo trio is ahead as well as van der Poel, Carthy, Martin, Rosa, Ciccone, Fortunato and Vansevenant. Ten riders together in the lead, just ahead of the 15 pursuers. The field is now more than six minutes behind. With this, Jan Hirt virtually climbs into the top 5 of the class in the overall ranking.

Giro live ticker: sprint for mountain classification

The 25 breakaways come to the mountains classification and as expected the three top riders in the classification duel for the points. Dutchman Koen Bouwman (Jumbo) in mountain jersey wins and surprises Giulio Ciccone (Italy/Trek) here who comes second.

It’s only a short downhill and then wavy – but in the short descent Santiago Buitrago (Bahrain) is doomed in a curve, the Colombian falls painfully here. However, Mikel Landa’s team-mate can continue.

Live ticker for the 17th Giro stage: decency is increasing

The field is now taking it a little easier, the gap is growing to over four minutes. For the top, it’s now up to the ascent, it’s climbing! Of the 25 escapees, a number of riders can almost only be seen at the end of the group, such as Carlos de la Cruz, who saves all his strength to perhaps be able to help his captain Vincenzo Nibali later.

Giro ticker: the first increase is approaching

The first of the three mountain classifications of the day is approaching – but this is only a foretaste of the difficult chunks in the final. The mountain classification in Giovo at an altitude of 615 meters is 5.9 kilometers uphill at an average of 6.8%, including a ramp with 12%, which is followed by a short descent.

Giro live: 2 p.m. – 110 kilometers to go

Now the sun is coming out again, Ineos still has everything under control and keeps the difference at just over three minutes. The rain jackets are now removed and handed into the team vehicles. About 25 kilometers left until the first small climb of the day (3rd category). The first three riders in the climbing classification are all in the leading group, so this climb will not change much, but only the two big peaks in the stage final.

The distance between the breakaways and the field now increases to three minutes, after the action-packed start phase it is now a little quieter. The Grupetto managed to catch up with the peloton, the weather is now overcast again and slightly rainy in this section of the route. Team Ineos does the follow-up work and controls the racing situation.

The first hour of racing has been completed and the average speed so far is almost 44 km/h. The leading group harmonizes well, but the gap remains constant during the journey through the Val di Sole in Trentino. Only the sun is missing, many drivers with gloves on the road.

Giro live: 1:15 p.m. – 150 kilometers to go

Now there is a merger at the top, around 25 drivers there together. No Germans there, but Felix Gall from Austria. There are no drivers from the Bora and Ineos teams, in the overall standings Jan Hirt, yesterday’s winner, is best placed with a deficit of 7:42. The field is currently two minutes behind.

17th stage live in the Giro ticker: First climb completed

The drivers come over the Passo Tonale at almost 1900 meters altitude, where there are no mountain points. The first riders around Hugh Carthy are now waiting on the descent for a larger group of pursuers, the field already one and a half minutes behind. At the top of the pass, Bora team boss Ralph Denk himself is standing and handing his pros bottles!

17th Giro stage in the ticker: attacks on the rise

A group of four riders is now breaking away on the climb: Felix Gall (ag2r) from Austria, Britain’s Hugh Carthy (EF), Attila Valter (Groupama) from Hungary and Dutchman Thymen Arensman (DSM). In the overall standings, Arensman is the best of them, 10:23 minutes behind the pink jersey. But the field is only a few seconds behind – the group of the day is not yet set.

Giro live ticker: Start of the 17th stage

Riders have to climb from the start today, going straight up to the Passo del Tonale at 1883 meters, an 8.7 kilometer climb. Why there are no mountain points there is somewhat incomprehensible. Anyone who wants to achieve something today has warmed up on the role for this start… Now the race is released and the attacks begin!

Giro, 17th stage in the ticker: rain at the start

Today the Giro turns into a rain battle! Bad weather at the start where the riders are now lining up. The temperatures are around ten degrees, rain jackets for all drivers and some with leg warmers today.
As always, it starts neutralized, today there are 4.4 kilometers to the start of this 17th stage.

17th Giro stage: The favorites of the day

The Passo del Tonale will probably ensure that a strong climbing group breaks away at the beginning. Maybe we’ll see Lennard K√§mna (Bora-hansgrohe) again, but Lucas Hamilton (BikeExchange-Jayco) or Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) would also be candidates. Among the favorites, Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers), Jai Hindley (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Mikel Landa (Bahrain-Victorious) will eye each other again – and duel.

Welcome to the live ticker of the 17th Giro stage!

Directly after the start in Ponte di Legno, it goes eight kilometers up to the Passo del Tonale, which, mysteriously, has not been given a mountain classification by the organizers. The following 70 kilometers are downhill before the climb to Giovo (category 3: 5.9 kilometers; 6.8%) heralds a bumpy section halfway through the stage. After 121 kilometers the first sprint will take place in Pergine Valsugana. Immediately afterwards it goes into the even Passo del Vertirolo (1st category: 11.8 kilometers; 7.7%). The bonus seconds are awarded after 149 kilometers in Caldonazo.

The last climb to Monterovene (1st category: 7.9 kilometers; 9.9%) has a 15% steep ramp 1.5 kilometers before the summit. The first four kilometers after the mountain classification are still slightly uphill, before four kilometers of descent to the finish follow. Lavarone is finally reached after 168 kilometers of racing distance.
