Giro d’Italia live in the ticker – Alberto Dainese ensures the first Italian victory: This is how the 11th stage went
Written by insideindyhomes

The stage was tailor-made for the sprinters: on the 203 flat kilometers from Santarcangelo di Romagna to the finish in Reggio Emilia, breakaways had little chance. De Bondt also had to experience this.

The 30-year-old kept the field in check for a long time and also benefited from the momentary tailwind. With four kilometers to go, there were still 14 seconds between the Belgian and the peloton.

Ultimately, however, Dainese secured victory in the final sprint, also ensuring the first Italian victory of this edition of the Giro d’Italia. They were followed by Fernando Gaviria Rendon (UAE Team Emirates) and Simone Consonni (Cofidis).

The 11th stage of the Giro d’Italia 2022 can be read here:


With that I say goodbye for today. Tomorrow we continue with the 12th stage. This section leads from Parma to Genoa and is also the longest stage of the tour (204 kilometers). Be there again then!

Giro live ticker: The classification

Juan Pedro Lopez (TFS) gets to spend another day in pink. The junior classification is also led by Lopez. Meanwhile, Démare extends his lead in the sprint classification. The mountain jersey stays with Diego Rosa (EOK).

4:50 p.m. – Final sprint: Alberto Dainese wins 11th stage

Shortly before the finish, De Bondt lost his lead and had to give way to his competitors. In the end, Alberto Dainese came out on top and secured Italy’s first victory in this Giro d’Italia.

Giro live ticker: The last kilometers

There are four kilometers to go and De Bondt has 14 seconds left. Of course, the sprinter teams are able to close this gap quickly. But with the tailwind on the last five kilometers, you shouldn’t underestimate De Bondt either.

4:35 p.m. – 12 kilometers to go: De Bondt extends his lead

Now De Bondt can even increase his lead to 30 seconds. The Belgian doggedly defends himself against his competition. The calm before the storm continues to reign in the field.

Giro live ticker: Field is catching up

De Bondt is only 17 seconds ahead with 25 kilometers to go. His escape won’t last much longer. Tobias Bayer (Alpecin) and Davide Cimolai (Cofidis) are involved in a fall while crossing a town. Both have to swap machines, but can continue.

Things are slowly getting more nervous in the field. Several teams try to place themselves at the front.

4:00 p.m. – 38 kilometers to go: Feld stays alert

With an average of 46 km/h, the drivers are fast on the road. In the last 15 kilometers they should pick up a gear again. The goal will probably be reached shortly before 5:00 p.m. The soloist has a lead of only 35 seconds, you won’t let him go, winning the stage is too coveted.

11th stage in the ticker: soloist settles down

Dries De Bondt (Alpecin) has become too slow. The former Belgian champion stands out as a soloist from the field. There he is allowed to do something for the time being. De Bondt quickly extends his lead to a minute. There are still 52 kilometers to go. There is still no organized tracking work in the field.

3:30 p.m. – 70 kilometers to go: Short break

The race is a little calmer again. In six kilometers there is another slight change in direction that the drivers could take advantage of. The drivers take the opportunity to eat again. The mood in the peloton is currently rather relaxed.

Giro in the live ticker: Second intermediate sprint

The bonus seconds for the overall standings are now attracting Team Ineos: Two helpers prepare the ground for Richard Carapaz, he clears the three seconds and is now second in the overall standings, at the same time as Joao Almeida he is twelve seconds behind Juan Pedro Lopez’s pink jersey.

Quick-Step now tries to open an edge. But they can’t stretch the field at this place just yet. The pace remains extremely high, it could start again at any moment.

11th stage in the ticker: Wind alert in the field!

The wind is currently coming from the right rear at a fresh 29 km/h and is pushing the field vigorously. At the end of the field, the first drivers lose contact. Caleb Ewan is among them.

But to create a larger wind edge, the angle of the incident wind is still too acute. That could change in a moment, as the route then makes a slight change in direction to the north-west and the wind then comes from the right side.

Luca Rastelli (Bardiani) and Filippo Tagliani (Drone Hopper) have caught up – the teams in the field are really putting the pressure on now, everyone wants to be at the front, the pace is extremely high. Trek, Bahrain, Ineos, Movistar, Alpecin, Cofidis and also Bora-hansgrohe are going full throttle.

Giro in the live ticker: Feld turns up

The field continues to catch up to the two breakaways, the gap is no longer a minute. The possible risk of wind edges after the city makes all teams nervous, nobody wants to be surprised when the track branches off.

2:30 p.m. – 115 kilometers to go: Refreshments are due

It goes through the aid zone, with a gap of 3:37 minutes. The two leaders Luca Rastelli (Bardiani) and Filippo Tagliani (Drone Hopper) have picked up speed again while the jersey pockets are still being filled in the field. The peloton is now led by Team Lotto Soudal, who are backing Caleb Ewan today.

The intermediate sprint goes to Filippo Tagliani – after a short start he rolls ahead of Luca Rastelli. Arnaud Démare, Mark Cavendish and Giacomo Nizzolo sprint out of the field for third place – it will be very close! The Brit wins ahead of the Italian and the French.

It passes Imola and the first of the two intermediate sprints of the day is slowly approaching: The escapees can reward themselves with points and bonuses – and there will certainly be sprints out of the field in the fight for the maglia ciclamino of this Giro d’Italia.

Giro in the ticker: no danger for front runners

The Giro is now halfway through its kilometers – but today without much excitement. It is expected to be a quiet day.
There is no danger in any special classification – Juan Pedro Lopez can roll along relaxed in the pink jersey, Diego Rosa’s mountain jersey cannot wobble today and Arnaud Démare is also safe in the points classification after Biniam Girmay left.

1:30 p.m. – 155 kilometers to go: distance stable

The difference has now leveled off at 4:30 minutes, so the Italo duo in front has little chance of a coup today. In the peloton, Cofidis, Movistar and Groupama-FDJ are in front, but there is still a relaxed chat. By the way, no mountain classifications today, only the two obligatory intermediate sprints.

Live ticker 11th Giro stage: outliers in front

The two leaders Luca Rastelli (Bardiani) and Filippo Tagliani (Drone Hopper) are now almost two minutes ahead of the field. They have a long day ahead of them…

The pink jersey can roll along in the field in a relaxed manner, because the two escapees are both more than two hours behind in the overall standings.

Giro live ticker: Start of the 11th stage

Welcome to the 11th stage – the field starts rolling in Santarcangelo di Romagna. It starts relaxed and neutral, the weather is sunny and pleasant, best conditions so far, 166 drivers are still in the race.

The start was cleared and the first attacks start immediately, a duo pulls away. The field lets them do their thing, no one wants to throw themselves into such a venture on this sprint stage. The Italian wildcard teams alone have little choice…

Giro route: course & profile of stage 11 – day for the sprinters

Welcome to the 11th Giro stage!

The 203 kilometers between Santarcangelo di Romagna and Reggio Emilia are completely flat. There is a total of only 480 vertical meters to complete. The first sprint will be held after 76 kilometers in Toscanella di Dozza. The second sprint classification awaits after 126 kilometers in San Giovanni in Persiceto. On the last kilometer in Reggio Emilia, the home straight bends twice to the left. These changes of direction will probably be completed without brakes.

After yesterday’s hilly stage, the pure sprinters will have their chance again this time. For drivers like Arnaud Démare (GFC), Mark Cavendish (QST) or Fernando Gaviria (UAD) there aren’t that many opportunities left on this tour. That’s why the pressure is increasing to be able to record another stage success.
