Giro d’Italia returns to Courmayeur after 60 years

Giro d’Italia returns to Courmayeur after 60 years

In 1959, after 300 brutal kilometers, Charly Gaul attacked from afar, on the Little St. Bernard Pass, deposing Jacques Anquetil of the pink jersey, and soloed to a remarkable victory, which basically sealed his overall triumph. Six decades later, after another deep foray into the Alps, the Corsa Rosa visited again the ski resort and the general classification got reshuffled after Richard Carapaz (Movistar) took the win and the overall lead.

Containing no fewer than five climbs, of which the most taxing was by far Colle San Carlo (10.5km, 9.8%), the stage tore the race apart with over 40 kilometers, putting many riders on their limit and opening significant gaps between the general classification contenders.

It wasn’t an easy day for Bob Jungels, but the 26-year-old Luxembourger – a two-time winner of the white jersey at the Giro d’Italia – battled through and made it safely to the finish helped by an incredible Eros Capecchi, who emptied himself for his leader. Despite this new setback, Bob vowed to continue fighting as the race takes on a familiar route on Sunday, which borrows several climbs of the Il Lombardia route.
