The penultimate day of racing at the Giro Ciclistico d’Italia saw the peloton take on another challenging day in the saddle, with 167 kilometres from Cavalese to Nevegal to contend with. Rolling out of the neutralised zone the riders were faced with a short descent before they hit the first climb of the day, with the road heading upwards for an action packed 25 kilometres of racing. As a result, a fierce pace was set at the front of the peloton with lots of early attacks. Despite a few small promising moves, the front of the race was all together as they took on the long descent, with riders in several groups behind.
Riding excellently as a group, the team kept a steady tempo at the front of the peloton as those from behind steadily returned. The attacks continued as the kilometres ticked by but no one was able to establish a lead at the front of the race and things were all together as the bunch headed towards the first passage of the finish climb. The intensity in the peloton remained high and the bunch thinned down even further over the top of the ascent, with a group of around 20 riders together as the race charged towards the final ascent. Gianmarco Garofoli rode at a strong tempo at the front of the group for the team, reeling in several failed attacks, looking to set up Henri Vandenabeele for the finale. On the more gradual slopes towards the line it became a tactical affair with a lone rider launching a perfectly timed attack to take the win. Vandenabeele dug as deep as he could, taking a great fourth place which sees him remain in third place on GC for the team with one stage to go.
