Melanoma: It Started with a Freckle

Weather at the finish city of Aprica at 1:40 PM, local time: 20C (68F), mostly cloudy, with the wind from the southwest at 13 km/hr (9 mph). There is an 18% chance of rain, growing to 80% at 5:00 PM. Thunderstorms are possible.

Info about the route: A queen stage across the Alps, with over 5,000 m vertical altitude gain. The stage begins in Valsabbia, going up, and takes in a long climb (nearly 30 km) leading to the 2,000m Goletto di Cadino. The route drops into the Val Camonica (with a few level crossings along the way) and goes up again, reaching Edolo. The route then tackles the Passo del Mortirolo coming from Monno. Three km before the summit, the road narrows and the gradients rise. A technical descent follows, leading to Grosio on narrow road (quite steep at points). After a flat stretch, the route goes up again, heading for Teglio (on narrowed roadway, with gradients even exceeding 15% at points), and then descends rapidly towards Tresenda, before the closing ascent up the Valico di Santa Cristina. The road, wide and well-paved in the first part (with two short tunnels along the way), narrows as soon as it switches towards the summit. The route winds its way in hairpins through the woods, with sharp gradients, dropping sharply and rapidly into the finish.

Final kilometers:
The descent from the Valico di Santa Cristina to the 1,500 m marker is highly technical, on narrow road and with sharp gradients. In the closing stretch, the route rises steadily at around 3% all the way to the finish (on tarmac).

The race: Jonathan Caicedo (EF Education-EasyPost) did not start today's stage. Well into the stage Natnael Tesfazione (Drone Hopper-Androni Giocattoli) abandoned.

Alpine racing

Today is a brutal day in the high mountains. Here are riders on the first big climb, the Passo Crocedomini. RCS Sport photo

Here's the stage report from second-place Thymen Arensman's Team DSM:

With yesterday’s final rest day behind them, the bunch rolled out from Salò this morning ahead of what has been billed as the queen stage of the race. Faced with a leg-numbing 5000 metres of climbing throughout the 202 kilometre route that featured the ascents of Goletto di Cadino, Passo de Mortirolo and Valico di Santa Cristina, and a stinging uncategorised climb to the intermediate sprint – it was set to be a brutal day out.

As expected, it was a fast start to the stage with multiple attacks at the head of the race and a big fight to form the day’s breakaway. Despite a smaller group going clear, the peloton kept them close and heading onto the first ascent of the day the full breakaway formed with Thymen Arensman and Chris Hamilton riding well to make it for the team.

On the valley road before the Mortirolo the breakaway split, with Arensman and Hamilton both alert to make the front group, rotating well and increasing the gap to those that missed out. Once onto the famous ascent itself, Hamilton came to the front and didn’t look back, setting a strong tempo to keep a now charging peloton at bay. After a monumental effort, Hamilton swung off towards the summit of Mortirolo, with Arensman and the rest of his breakaway companions forging on.

The group continued to work well together but approaching the steep uncategorised climb the peloton upped the pace and dramatically cut the gap from five to under three minutes as they hit the valley road ahead of the final ascent. On the descent, Kämna had attacked and built up a lead of over 45 seconds on Arensman’s group with 16 kilometres to go. Initially working together on the lower slopes, Arensman felt the pace slowing and attacked the rest of the group, setting off in pursuit of Kämna, with Hirt doing the same not long after.

As each rider battled on the steep slopes, the trio eventually came together at eight kilometres to go where Arensman immediately went on the move, with his stinging attack dropping Kämna. He and Hirt pushed on together but at the same time they sized each other up with probing moves before Hirt pressed on the pedals once more, and Arensman had to let go of the wheel. Not giving in, Arensman fought all the way to the top of the climb inside six kilometres to go, crossing the KOM point 17 seconds behind Hirt. Putting his technical skills to great effect, Arensman gained and gained on Hirt down the treacherous and wet descent before the flat run to the line, but it would be just not enough to take stage win as Hirt crossed seven seconds ahead of him.

Nonetheless, it was an incredible fighting display by Arensman to take second place at the finish, his best result at WorldTour level, after what was some superb work by Hamilton earlier in the stage – with the team showing their resilient character and fighting spirit.

“Physically I feel good but mentally I feel really disappointed because I would have really liked to have done this for the team,” explained Arensman. “I had a good descent, especially with the rain, and I still thought I could do it but in the end I just missed a bit. The guys were awesome today and we just have to keep fighting and we hope another will come.”

Team DSM coach Matt Winston added: “I think it was really good today. We had Chris and Thymen in the break, which was perfect for us. It was a big break so the guys split the break in a good moment, with eight in front and we had both in there. Thymen told Chris that he had good legs, so Chris set a really good tempo on the Mortirolo so there was a good time gap between them and the peloton, as we knew they would come later in the stage. On the last climb Thymen gave it everything he had. He attacked the rest of the break when Kämna had the gap, and almost get rid of everybody but Hirt came with him. Then when they caught Kämna, Thymen went again but he got attacked himself over the top of the climb and finished second. Everyone feels a little bit disappointed because we knew that we did everything we could but didn’t pull off the win this time, but I think overall it was a really good day and a really good performance.”

It was a day for racing in the high Alps.

Arnaud Demare

Points classification leader Arnaud Démare finished safely within the time limit.
