The Giro d’Italia live on the tape: Messina’s Fifth Stage – Next Chance for Runners in Sicily on the live tape

The fifth stage of the Giro begins at 11:45 a.m. and will already be scheduled around 4:00 p.m. as the caravan moves to the Italian mainland.

With Leonard Kamna in the mountainous jersey and Spain’s Juan Pablo Lopez in the pink jersey, there are two new overall leaders on the road today in the special classifications. In the points classification, the fight between the runners and current captain Matthew van der Poel will enter a new round.

The route is not easy for runners, because the first half of the stage features a climb of about 20 kilometers. If there’s speed going on there, that might put some fast guys in trouble.

Giro d’Italia, Phase 5: Capture the Secession

Leading group 66 km from the end. Israel-Premieretech and the United Arab Emirates now support Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert in the business. Alpecin-Fenix ​​is ​​currently withdrawn.

Reached recovery area – still 65 km

Tagliani slipped from the leading group. The other four riders fend for themselves with their teeth and nails, but don’t stand a chance against the peloton slowly but surely. But there the loneliness faded, and there was no more speed with many teams.

Fifth stage of Giro: Escape is caught immediately

The peloton approaches when landing. Now it’s only 15 seconds for the separatists. Merger is imminent.

Backrunner – still 85 km

Currently, drivers are descending and traveling 87 kilometers. The leading group is only 40 seconds ahead of the field where Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert started following. Cavendish has five assistants on his side, but is more than three minutes behind. Caleb Ewan has only two assistants and is already five minutes behind.

Arnaud Demarie (GFC) also lost touch and is about two minutes behind the leader with his assistant Miles Scottson. Three years ago, Demari managed to win a similar stage.

Fifth stage Jiro: Classification of mountains into Maestri

By the way, the mountain rating went to Maestri, who subsequently received 18 points. Bais and Hänninen occupied the following places. With one point, Kamna was able to increase his lead to 41 points.

Outliers are almost in sight

The five defectors – Jaakko Hänninen (ag2r), Alessandro Tonelli (Bardiani), Mirco Maestri (Eolo) as well as Mattia Bais and Filippo Tagliani (Drone Hopper) – are just 50 seconds off the field. The pace will continue there, so let’s see what the shortfalls for runners Ewan, Demarie and Cavendish will be like.

Fifth stage: Kamna covered 99 kilometers on the mountain

The mountain rating was reached and Leonard Kamna got another point behind the Five Fugitives. His mountain jersey isn’t in danger today anyway, a big lead thanks to his success on Mount Etna. There is still nearly 100 km to go, and the descent now is technical but not dangerous.

The next runner suffers from the rise

Now Arnaud Démare (Groupama) is captured, the French runner is falling behind. The five deserters would likely be able to surpass the mountain classification before the first bulk of the field.

Fifth stage: Ewan can’t follow either of them

Caleb Ewan also fell off the field, and Alpecin’s increased pace made Peloton within 90 seconds of the five runaways. There are still a few kilometers to go until the mountain classification.

Alpecin sets the pace – Cavendish struggle

Alpecin is now upping the pace on the field, and Mathieu van der Poel’s team wants to try and lose some sprinters. Mark Cavendish is already struggling on this long climb. However, there is still a long way to go from the classification of the mountains to the end: there are still about 90 kilometers.

All riders are now in the middle of climbing Portella Mandrazzi, with an altitude of 1,125 metres. Almost 800 vertical meters must be climbed, with a span of 19.6 kilometers. The average is 4.0% – but there are also lanes with a slope of 9%.

Average sprint completed – 114 kilometers to run

The middle race has been passed, and Tagliani wins it ahead of Hänninen and Bais. From the field, sixth place goes to Biniam Girmay. In the points classification, he is now 58 points closer to Mathieu van der Poel (62) and passes Mark Cavendish (53).

Stage 5: Riders climb – 109 km to start

All riders are now in the middle of climbing Portella Mandrazzi, with an altitude of 1,125 metres. Almost 800 vertical meters must be climbed, with a span of 19.6 kilometers. The average is 4.0% – but there are also lanes with a slope of 9%.

The first private reviews are approaching

The road is now slowly but surely going uphill, the first intermediate race approaches and then rises to the mountainous Category 2 classification at about 20km. The gap again in about five minutes between the field and the five fugitives Jaco Hanenen (ag2r), Alessandro Tonelli (Bardiani), Mirco Maestri (Iolo) plus Mattia Paes and Filippo Tagliani (Drone Hopper).

Fifth Giro stage: Field prepares

The calm race condition Thomas DeGendt personally brings the splitters a little closer to the field: Lotto veteran makes the less than four-minute lead to his captain Caleb Ewan.

Sprinter teams take charge of the chase – still 142 kilometers

The field is now organized and he doesn’t want to let the leading group get too many advantages: the four-minute gap fades, and teams of sprinters (Lotto, Groupama and Quick-Step) share the work.

Giro Stage 5: The lead is increasing rapidly

The lead has now grown to over four minutes, and the field makes it easy. It passes over undulating terrain, and there are still 155 kilometers to be completed.

Five fugitives mark the fifth stage – still 164 kilometers

Finn and four Italians up front – outliers at a glance:
Jaakko Hänninen (ag2r), Alessandro Tonelli (Bardiani), Mirco Maestri (Eolo) as well as Mattia Bais and Filippo Tagliani (Drone Hopper).

Giro Fifth Stage: Separate Group Stands

Now a few drivers have pulled off and are allowed to do whatever they want. The pentagram is only a separation from the peloton. None of the five Separatists pose a threat in the overall standings, they are all more than 15 minutes behind.

11:46 am: Giro stage 5 begins – 174km start

The stage is on, many teams are immediately trying to position themselves in the splinter group. High speed and a lot of movement at the front of the field, more than 60 km / h on sloping terrain in the first kilometers from the stage.
