The Giro d’Italia live in the stock bar – Stage 7: Will Leonard Kamna drive the pink jersey on his way to Potenza?

Six stages of the Tour of Italy have now been completed. Today’s section from Diamante to Potenza marks the start of a really tough second weekend for the Giro. On the way from Diamante to Potenza, the peloton has to climb 4500 meters over 196 kilometers. Started is over 11:55 am.

It’s constantly up and down on Fridays, and the drivers hardly have time to relax. Four rated mountain tops, including Monte Sirino, a Class 1 climb, offer Lennard Kämna a great opportunity to extend his progression in the mountain jersey.

But the 25-year-old may still be able to stage a much bigger coup today. After his stage win over Etna on Tuesday, the Bora professional is just 38 seconds behind leader Juan Pedro Lopez (Trek-Segafredo) in the general standings. Thanks to his climbing qualities, Kamna was able to beat the pink jersey at Potenza.

Jiro: The seventh stage directly – the lead is regressing

The touchdown and the gap between the leaders and the field is now over at 5:30. The race situation is quiet at the moment, and the first two middle races of this seventh stage track the 20km.

2:20 pm: Mountain classification goes to Baumann

The leading group has passed the mountain classification of the first category and goes to the long descent. Quinn Bowman wins the Burgpress collecting 40 points and now gets close to Leonard Kamna.
The following points go to Poels (18), Mollema (12), Formolo (9) and Dumouin (6).

The seventh stage live broadcast tape – 111 km to start

After the flat part of the ascent, the last and most difficult kilometers reached the mountain classification. The lead increased to more than four minutes across the seven teams that included Tom Dumoulin, David Formolo and Buc Mollema.

Jiro in the live broadcast tape: the dissolution of the group

Now the group has formed and it’s now two minutes off the field: up front are Tom Dumoin, Quinn Bowman (Jumbo), Bucky Mollema (Trek) and Wat Boyles (Bahrain) – all Dutch. In addition to the Italians David Formolo (UAE), David Villella (Cofidis) and Diego Andres Camargo (EF / Colombia).

1:30 p.m.: The climbing continues

Now, in climbing, a situation is forming with two groups directly in front: Formolo, Poels, Villella and Bouwman in the lead, followed by Mollema, Camargo and Dumoulin. Behind the field – but all in about half a minute.

Algiro stage VII: Beginning of mountain classification – 130 km left

The main data of this mountain classification of the first category in Monte Sereno (1402 m): it is 24.4 km uphill, but very irregular – there are flat sections and slopes interspersed with this distance.
This lowers the gradient at only 3.8%, but it also becomes steeper by up to 12%. The last part of the mountain is much more difficult than the first eight kilometers now.

Live tape: Kämna attacks – 135 kilometers left

Now Lenard Camna tries his luck and attacks – but his rival in the pink jersey, Spaniard Juan Pedro Lopez, reacts and goes with him. The gaps are still very small, so Richard Karabaz’s work has again been neutralized.

Giro Live: Ineos attacks Carabaz

Team Ineos is now really sounding the alarm: Richard Karapaz’s favorite attack with one of his teammates and Matthew van der Poel, the trio behind a bigger group. On the field, Simon Yates’ team reacts in pursuit – the second climb of the day begins.

Jiro, seventh stage: full throttle on a mountain roller coaster

The situation remains about the same: drivers drive very fast, splits remain in sight and the field does not calm down. After the rain-drenched descent, the longest climb begins at this point, during which the cards are rearranged.

Live video Stage 7: The first mountain classification begins

The first of the day’s four excursions is the easiest of the day on this trek from coast to backcountry. It rises 9.3 kilometers, and the height of 421 meters must be mastered. The average gradient is 4.5 percent over the total distance, but there is also a 12 percent slope in Paso Cola (594 m altitude).

Jiro Life: 165 kilometers to go

The battle of the leading group lasted for more than 45 minutes, and today there is nothing to see in the slow pace of yesterday’s stage. Attacks continue, but no one has really succeeded so far, the field continues to bring back runaway drivers. The date of the first climb is approaching, and many pros will try again there.

Seventh Giro stage: Work in the early stages

The terrain is more rugged now, but there is still a long way to go to reach the first classification of mountains. The fierce fighting for today’s escape group continues unabated, with many teams almost feeling their chance today and this nullifies every attack once again. There’s a lot at stake today – stage win, pink jersey, mountain jersey!

Giro d’Italia: No group at the top yet

Lots of movement in the peloton and there was still a real splinter group that was able to break away. Some drivers continue to try their luck, but the gaps are still small. Thomas de Gendt of Lotto Soudal is a bit ahead as a soloist, but the Belgian is still hoping for an escort, or else he’ll be a very long solo today on the toughest terrain. We still have 185 kilometers to finish in Potenza.

Jiro live in the tape: the beginning of the seventh stage

here we are! The race has been launched – so there are still 196 kilometers to master. Four climbs, and as usual, there are two middle races on the programme. The first 35 kilometers is still rather flat, then the climb begins.
The pace is immediately high, the first attacks begin!

Jiro, stage 7 live: The field is rolling

Welcome to this seventh stage – the field has just moved out of Diamante’s starting position and is now six kilometers from the neutral circuit before the start of the race. Leonard Camna in the blue mountain jersey and Juan Pedro Lopez in Maglia rosa stand out at the front of the peloton – (almost) everything will revolve around these two drivers today.

Giro d’Italia live in the tape: Welcome to the seventh stage

Buongiorno of Italy in the seventh stage of the 105th Giro d’Italia. Today’s section drives more than 196 kilometers from Diamante to Potenza. It goes up and down. In the program there are a total of 4,510 vertical meters. So there is a real mountain stage at the start of the weekend. Andreas Schulz runs off for you. Have fun!
