Simon Yates

Simon Yates wins the stage.

Weather at the finish city of Sappada at 1:50 PM, local time: 13C (56F), rain showers, with the wind from the east at 11 km/hr (7 mph). Occasional rain is expected to continue throughout the day.

The race: 165 riders began stage 15 at 12:23 PM. Alessandro Tonelli (Bardiani-CSF) did not start the stage. We're in the Dolomite Mountains and Tom Dumoulin said, "I think it's going to be a brutal stage again."

Here's the organizer's summary:

The Maglia Rosa Simon Yates (Mitchelton – Scott) has won Stage 15 of the 101st Giro d’Italia – 156km from Tolmezzo to Sappada. Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana Pro Team) and Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) finished second and third, respectively.

Simon Yates increased his leadership in the General Classification, wearing the Maglia Rosa.

The race leader, Simon Yates, said: “My attack was a little bit on instinct. I saw a little gap. I gave everything the second time to get away. It’s fantastic. I feel emotional after today. I’ve been fighting since Israel to build a good lead. I’m happy with the gap I have now but it’s far from over. It could vanish in 35 kilometres.”

And here's the report from winner Simon Yate's Mitchelton-Scott team:

Mitchelton-SCOTT's Simon Yates has taken a stunning third stage win to further his overall lead at the Giro d'Italia today. The solo victory, following a bold attack with 17km remaining, makes the 25-year-old the first rider in 15years to claim three stages in the Maglia Rosa following Gilberto Simoni's efforts in 2003.

As the race enters its final rest day, Yates leads overall by two-minutes 11seconds to Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) and two-minutes 28seconds from Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ).

Uneasy bunch
Despite a brutal finish to yesterday’s stage, there was no respite today and the bunch was uneasy from the flag. No matter the composition of a move, someone was unhappy and forced the chase. A group of nine swelled to over 20, which included Mitchelton-SCOTT’s Sam Bewley, but they broke down into small groups on the second climb of the day as EF Education First – Drapac chased from behind to launch Michael Woods.

Over the top of the second climb, the gaps started to extend.  Dario Quintana (Team Movistar) led with AG2R La Mondiale duo Nico Denz and Mikael Cherel, with Woods in a chase group of three at two minutes and the peloton, regrouped and led once again by Mitchelton-SCOTT, at two-minutes 30seconds.

With numbers:
Mitchelton-SCOTT still had seven riders in the reduced bunch racing into the final 50km and they working well on the front they soon swept up the Woods trio.

Team Sunweb came to the front and started to push the pace. Their efforts further reduced the bunch to 20riders and the advantage to two surviving breakaway riders shrunk to 40seconds with 30km remaining.

Jack Haig and Mikel Nieve were the final remaining teammates with Yates and they chased down the early attacks of Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana Pro Team) and George Bennett (LottoNL-Jumbo).

Pink Power:
Racing with confidence and tactics, Yates saw a gap open up in the lead group on the final classified climb and used the opportunity to hurt his rivals. He launched an attack which caused the group to split further but his main rivals responded, neutralising his attempt.

Unwilling to give up, Yates bravely tried another attack shortly after and nobody was able to respond. Yates quickly opened up a solo lead and extended the gap further on the final descent. By the time he reached the finish line, the Briton had increased his advantage to 41seconds over his rivals and took a 10second bonus on the line to gain more crucial Dumoulin.

Simon Yates - Stage 15 winner:
"It was a bit of instinct. When we came off the descent I saw there was a little gap to a few guys so I asked Jack (Haig) to really push the pace. Then George Bennett (LottoNL-Jumbo) attacked so it was basically really hard from the very bottom, but I still felt good so I chose my moment to go. They responded the first time so I gave it everything the second time to get away and finally managed to get away.

"I am super happy, I am a bit emotional after today, I really gave it everything. I have a good gap, but he (Dumoulin) could take two minutes out of me in the time trial in one stage. I have been fighting since Israel to have a good gap, I have a good gap but it could vanish in 35kilometres so we will see."

Huge crowds watch Chris Froome ride alone to the finish at Monte Zoncolan

Weather at Paularo, on the route, near the finish, at 1:50 PM, local time: Light rain, 19C (67F), wind from the south at 10 km/hr (6 mph). Occasional rain is expected to continue through the afternoon.

The race: 166 riders began stage 14 at 11:59 AM. Tim Wellens (Lotto-Soudal), winner of stage 4, and Thomas Scully (EF Education First) did not start.

Here's the organizer's stage 14 report:

Chris Froome (Team Sky) took his first-ever Giro d’Italia stage victory at the dream location of the Monte Zoncolan as he fended off race leader Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) who rode superbly behind him and extended his advantage over the other favourites. The two British stars scored an historic 1-2 on the royal wedding day. Both will be remembered for a long time.

STATISTICS

PRESS CONFERENCE
The stage winner, Chris Froome, said: “I’m really happy with the victory today. It’s a big boost in morale after what’s been a tough start to the Giro for the team and me but, being realistic, I’m still three minutes down. There are really strong riders here. Simon [Yates] has done a really amazing ride. In the last kilometre, I thought he was going to catch me – he’s got more of a kick than me – so having resisted [him] makes it a special victory. I want to thank everyone who supported us through this hard part of the race and kept the morale high. It never crossed my mind to retire from the race. It’ll remain as a memorable victory atop Zoncolan, which is one of the most iconic climbs here in Italy. Knowing the climb helped me. The fans have been fantastic. Grazie mille to all the tifosi, they make the race what it is.”

The Maglia Rosa, Simon Yates, said: “I’m happy and not happy. I really tried for the stage win. I just couldn‘t get Chris in the final, but any time I could get on the other rivals is good for me. As expected, the gaps aren’t massive. I’m still happy with the gap to Tom [Dumoulin] and the rest of the guys behind. I wasn’t more nervous than the other days, as much as I am sure that Tom is confident ahead of time trials. I couldn’t follow Froome – he went at a really good moment. He put in a really strong acceleration. It was still a long way to go. I rode my own tempo at that moment – he didn’t get a huge gap. I tried to bridge but that’s ok. I did the best I could.”

Here's the report from stage winner Chris Froome's Team Sky:

Chris Froome claimed victory atop the Monte Zoncolan as stage 14 produced a thrilling finale at the Giro d’Italia. The Team Sky leader was paced onto the famous climb by his team-mates, and after a strong tempo from Wout Poels he launched a big acceleration with 4.2 kilometres to go.

Quickly opening out a gap, Froome was then able to fend off a late charge from the maglia rosa Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott), eventually crossing the line six seconds ahead to take a memorable win.

The result elevates Froome to fifth place overall, three minutes and 10 seconds back on Yates with seven stages remaining.

After crossing the line a thrilled Froome said: “It’s a really special feeling winning at the top of the climb today. It’s an amazing feeling on such a monumental climb on this year’s Giro d’Italia and such a monumental climb for the race in general. It’s just such a good feeling, especially after a really hard start to the Giro for me and the team.

“The team have been supporting me so well these last few weeks it’s so nice to get the victory today and it really means a lot.

“I felt like that (4km) was the moment that the race was really on the limit. I felt that was the moment for me to go. I’d obviously done the recon here and I knew the last few kilometres. The team had done a great job pulling me to that moment. Wout had done a big effort and made it really hard up until that point with 4km to go. Even right until the line Simon was just behind me. I kept on hearing 10 seconds, five seconds, 10 seconds. I didn’t know if he was going to catch me or not so it was such a relief to get into that last 100 metres and to hear that I was going to win the stage.”

Earlier Team Sky had hit the front to pace the bunch over the Avaglio climb, controlling the descent, and setting the tone for what was to come. Froome had David de la Cruz, Poels and Sergio Henao for support in a reduced lead group at the foot of the final climb, with Poels shredding the group with a huge turn. The Dutchman crossed the line seventh on the day, 1:07 back on Froome.

After the stage Sport Director Nicolas Portal told Eurosport: "We've been working with Chris and he's been working really hard the last couple of days. As everyone knows the start was not perfect for him and for the team but we still believed in our chance. So we've tried to make the best of all the stages before Zoncolan, and tomorrow obviously. It was a big show and chapeau to him.

"Today was a day to show how the team is and how he is. Anything can happen in this Giro. The most important thing is that he is back and that he can climb with the best and he can drop then. It was a short gap but still it was something pretty exceptional. So let's hope for the best for the next days."

Here's the organizer's explanation of the 2018 Giro route:

The 101st edition of the Giro d’Italia – organized by RCS Sport / La Gazzetta dello Sport – is scheduled from 4 to 27 May 2018. This year the Corsa Rosa will tell many stories along its route, spanning history, culture and sport.

Chris Froome, through a video, announced his participation in the Corsa Rosa.

THE ROUTE
A Grand Tour will start outside the borders of Europe for the first time as, for the 13th time, the Corsa Rosa will begin outside of Italy, continuing the race’s process of internationalization and promoting the concept of ‘Made in Italy’ throughout the World.

This 101st edition, totalling 3,546.2km with 44,000 meters of vertical elevation, features two Individual Time Trials, seven low difficulty stages, six of medium difficulty, six high difficulty and a total of eight summit finishes.

BIG START – ISRAEL
On Friday 4 May, a 9.7km ITT in Jerusalem West will decide the first Maglia Rosa. A highly technical route, with numerous bends and small ascents and descents, this will be the Tappa Bartali, commemorating the Italian cyclist who was awarded the honour of ‘Righteous Among the Nations’ and whose name is engraved on the Wall of Honor in the Garden of the Righteous in the Yad Vashem Memorial in Jerusalem.

From Haifa to Tel Aviv, with the finish on the straight seafront after 167km, the second stage is set to suit the sprinters and will pass through Jaffa, an ancient city just outside of Tel Aviv.

The last stage in Israel from Be’er Sheva to Eilat on the Red Sea includes a designated Mountains competition climb on the Ramon Crater (at 40km wide, the largest crater in the world), and also features a finish suitable for sprinters. Eilat will be the southernmost point touched by the Giro d’Italia in its history.

FIRST WEEK – SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL ITALY
The first rest day for the Giro caravan on Monday 7 May sees a transfer to Sicily, which will host the next three stages. Stage four, from Catania to Caltagirone (191km), finishes at the top of the city after many undulations including a short uphill finale.

From Agrigento to Santa Ninfa (Valle del Belice), the 152km fifth stage presents another finale suited to the finisseurs. In its first part, the stage touches the Valle dei Templi and the Scala dei Turchi (Valley of the Temples and the Scale of the Turks) and passes close to Selinunte. In 2018, it will be 50 years after the earthquake that struck those areas on 14 January 1968. The first summit finish of the 2018 Giro will be on Mount Etna. The 163km stage from Caltanissetta features an undulating first section until Paternò, where it starts a 25km climb with an increasing gradient. Then comes the unprecedented climb to the Etna; from Ragalna, on a narrow road, through the parks and solidified lava flows, to reach the Astrophysical Observatory.

Sprinters will have new opportunities on the 7th stage from Pizzo to Praia a Mare, entirely along the Tyrrhenian coast.

On Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 May two uphill finishes make for a challenging weekend: Montevergine di Mercogliano and the Gran Sasso d’Italia (Campo Imperatore). The first, at 208km, starts from Praia a Mare, crosses the Cilento, passing by the beaches of Salerno, then climbs until the finish line in front of the Sanctuary. On the following day, a very long stage at 224km, will bring the riders from Pesco Sannita to Gran Sasso d’Italia, the Mountagne Pantani of this 101st edition. A seemingly endless climb of 45km, leading to the finish line, is punctuated only by a central section with a more gentle slope.

SECOND WEEK – THE CENTER AND THE NORTH-EAST
After the second rest day, in Abruzzo, the race restarts from Penne and heads north to Umbria, finishing at Gualdo Tadino. At 239km it’s the longest stage of the 2018 Giro, and features an undulating finale. A few kilometers after the stage start, the race will pass next to the remains of Hotel Rigopiano where on 18 January 2017 a major avalanche resulted in 29 fatalities and many more injuries.
Stage 11 from Assisi to Osimo is dedicated to the memory of Michele Scarponi. It’s characterised by medium to long climbs at the beginning and the famous ‘walls’ (Muri) of the Marche inland at the end, including the Filottrano Wall (Muro di Filottrano) with slopes up to 14% and finale in the medieval historic center of Osimo.

On Thursday 17 May, the sprinters should be the protagonists – although the circuit of the Tre Monti before the arrival could change the odds. It is a fairly flat stage that will start from Osimo and end in Imola with a finish in the motorsport race circuit.

Stage 13 will start from Ferrara and finish at Nervesa della Battaglia after 180km with the short climb of the Montello in the finale. 100 years after the hostilities ceased, the Giro’s route passes some significant sites of World War I.
Saturday 19 May witnesses a stage entirely in Friuli Venezia Giulia with finish on the “Monster” Zoncolan. It starts from San Vito al Tagliamento and, across 181km, presents no fewer than five Mountain Classification sections throughout its 4,400m of vertical elevation: the Monte di Ragogna with its steep slopes, the Avaglio ascent and then, in the last 45km, without a single meter of flat, Passo Duron, Sella Valcalda and Monte Zoncolan – from the toughest side, Ovaro.

Next, on Sunday 20, the Dolomites stage from Tolmezzo to Sappada with four Mountain Classification sections. The route presents opportunities, especially after Auronzo di Cadore where there will be placed two unprecedented climbs in the Comelico area, both with gradients above 10%. The finale at Sappada features a slight ascent.

THIRD WEEK – TRENTINO AND THE NORTH-WEST
Following the last rest day in Trento (Monday 21 May), is a 34.5km Individual Time Trial, ending in the city of Rovereto, home of the Campana dei Caduti (“Bell of the Fallen”, cast using the bronze from the cannons of the 19 nations that fought in World War I. This almost flat route for ITT specialists has expected average speeds of around 50kph.

The Wine Stage has become an unmissable appointment on recent editions of the Giro d’Italia. This year it will be an in-line stage in the territory of Franciacorta, starting from Riva del Garda and finishing in Iseo. It’s the last chance for the sprinters, before the final stage in Rome.

What follows are the three days with the last mountain stages that will probably decide the Giro… On Thursday 24, the stage from Abbiategrasso starts with a long and flat route until the final climb that leads to Prato Nevoso.

The following day’s stage on the Alpi Occidentali (Western Alps) hosts the Cima Coppi. It starts in Venaria Reale and features four long and challenging climbs including the Colle di Lys, the Colle delle Finestre – with a 9km gravel sector – and the arrival at Bardonecchia (Jaffreu) after a 7km climb with average gradient of 9%.

On Saturday 25 the last mountain stage packs 4,500 meters vertical elevation into just three climbs. Riders will move from Susa on a stage that’s flat in its first part but then faces the unprecedented Col Tsecore before a finale with the ascent of St Pantaléon and the last summit finish in Cervinia.

GREAT FINAL IN ROME
We transfer to the capital for the finale of this 101st edition of the Giro. The 11.8km circuit in the center of Rome is to be repeated 10 times. It takes in many historic sites along Via Nazionale, Via Sistina, Piazza del Popolo, Circo Massimo (Circus Maximus), and the Terme di Caracalla (Baths of Caracalla) before arriving at finish line at the Fori Imperiali (Imperial Fora) under the Colosseum
