Tao Geoghegan Hart enters British cycling lore riding himself into the Maglia Rosa at the conclusion of the Giro in Milan. An incredible Giro for Ineos who won 7 stages and took the overall win. Sunweb flanked Tao taking 2nd and 3rd places overall as Kelderman gets his first grand tour podium finish of his career. Arnaud Demare quietly took home the Maglia Ciclamina in after the sprint free final week sewed up the jersey for him and his 4 stage wins.
The Vuelta has been blown apart after a rainy day in the mountains. Ion Izagirre writes himself into the record books with his stage 6 win which puts him on the list of riders who have won a stage in all three grand tours. The stage win of the Vuelta was the one that escaped the him in his home country. Todays attacks left Primoz Roglic unresponsive, allowing Richard Carapaz to move into the red jersey and Roglic dropping to 4th. We’ll see a new look on the roads Tuesday when the race returns as Ineos will have to defend and Jumbo Visma will need to be on the offensive, looking for opportunities to claw back Roglics 40 second defecit.
