Jai Hindley on the last mountain stage of the Giro d'Italia, performed once again at a high level, dropping and breaking the race leader Richard Carapaz on the steep finish to Passo Fedaia. Hindley did the fastest Passo Fedaia time since 2000, producing high watts to over 2000 metres at the very end of the three weeks.
It was a war on bikes in Catalunya today. In the wet and cold medium mountain terrain of stage 6, Richard Carapaz and Sergio Higuita upset the dysfunctional UAE-Emirates squad with race leader Joao Almeida and teammate prodigy Juan Ayuso, unable to cooperate again.
Despite bad tactics and pacing for others, Joao Almeida won Volta a Catalunya stage 4 mountain top finish on the Boí Taüll climb (13.0 km, 6.0%).
