Capecchi ventures in the break on Giro d’Italia queen stage

Capecchi ventures in the break on Giro d’Italia queen stage

The penultimate day of the race was peppered with five classified climbs – Cima Campo, Passo Manghen, Passo Rolle, Croce d’Aune and Croce d’Aune – Monte Avena – and accumulated nearly 6000 vertical meters, making it one of the toughest Grand Tour stages in recent memory. To add to the difficulty of this leg that started from Feltre, a small town in the province of Belluno visited by the bunch also on Friday, during the trek to San Martino di Castrozza, a fast and nervous start to the stage left the peloton decimated.

What should have been a large maglia rosa group numbered just 40 riders on the slopes of the first climb, where a breakaway took shape. Eros Capecchi responded present in the 12-man group that got to stay in the front until the valley between Passo Manghen – this year’s Cima Coppi – and Passo Rolle. After being caught by a reduced favourites’ group and a short moment of respite, Eros was again on the move, going into the second break of the stage.

Fifth in Pinerolo last week, the 32-year-old Italian brought his contribution in the group that put some three minutes between them and the chasers, before succumbing on the tough double-digit gradients of Croce d’Aune. That didn’t make Eros’ effort less impressive, as the Deceuninck – Quick-Step rider – who at this edition of his home Grand Tour clocked in some 400 kilometers in the break – made his way to the finish, once again concluding as the team’s highest-ranked rider and making a leap of two places in the overall standings.
