Vincenzo Nibali in action on the Superga climb

The Shark inflames like in the good old days, the Ecuadorian takes the shirt but Hindley chases him. Pozzovivo surprises, Almeida holds up, Landa loses a bit

TURIN. We don’t want the new pink jersey Richard Carapaz or his rival designated by the photonic stage of Turin, Jai Hindley. We’ll get to them too. But we have to start with Vincenzo Nibali. And not because we are Italians like him, but because he deserves it. In Turin, in a stage designed by the director of the Giro, Mauro Vegninot new to genial geniuses, the Squalo, the 37-year-old last bastion of Italian cycling, the one that together with Domenico Pozzovivowhile Filippo Ganna he distracts the “enemies” with deeds against the clock, defends the positions waiting for young reinforcements, in stage number 14 on Saturday 22 May in Turin he made a masterpiece.

The shot of Carapaz (Ineos)

Staying with the big names, attacking, suffering, counter-attacking, like in the old days, awakening the Italian cycling people with a stroke of a magic wand.

He brought them back in front of the TV, glued to cheering for him, made the thousands of fans who crowded the route proud, made as many regret for having preferred, given the African heat that was yesterday under the Mole, at the Giro a trip to the mountains, a trip to Liguria or, at least, a swim in the pool.

The captain of Astana, who won the Giro 2016 on these roads, was looking for the stage, he dreamed of that master stroke to say thanks to the fans and then take his leave at the end of the season. He found affection, a leg like in the good times and a podium ranking. Now he is 8th at 2’58 ”.

«I’m satisfied, I was looking for the stage but it was hard to take it, now let’s think about recovering»., He said at the finish line. Francesco Moser enter the isolated room of the Faculty of Architecture at Parco del Valentino where we are writing these lines in search of a little coolness. And he tells us confidently: “Nibali is on the podium, he can finish in the top three”. Maybe it won’t happen, like maybe Domenico Pozzovivonow fifth in the standings just a minute from the squad after another epic stage, sooner or later will pay the weight of almost 40 years, but that couple is passionate.

As well as the duel in sight for the squad. Less than 70 km to the end, before the first passage in Superga, Hansgrohe’s Bora flexes its muscles. Shoot, break the race, Carapaz island surprised by none of the battleship Ineos, sacrifice first Emmanuel Buchman then Wilco Kelderman “All inn” for Hindley. Carapaz, at the end of the second passage from Superga, 28 km to the finish, when only the last Maddalena to climb is missing, leaves. Powerful, convinced. Behind chasing Hindley and Nibali. That come back under him in the hardest part of the last climb. Here, at this juncture, the strength of the Australian second in 2020 impresses.
The others? We have said about the “Pozzo”. Regge, Joao Almeida (Uae), he struggles but limits the damage and loses about thirty seconds. Mikel Landa (Bahrain) loses a minute, Juan Pablo Lopez (Trek), after ten days the pink jersey, after a proud defense.

Richard Carapaz (Ineos)

The stage? Simon Yates (Bike Exchenge) out of the standings at the Blockhaus due to the consequences of a fall, anger at the misfortune that haunts him in the Giro, joins the trio and takes the Marcell Jacobs, present at the finish, on the last dent before the finish line. Carapaz is in the squad, but has Hindley at 7 “, Almeida is at 30”, Landa at 59 “.
Today Rivarolo Canavese-Cogne, 177 km three long climbs, the last, even if pedaled, more than all. But in the meantime, let’s enjoy this Shark goes.
