Giro d’Italia Stage 19
Blood was in the water on Stage 18 after the unexpected happened. Simon Yates (GBR) would show signs of weakness for the first time in the Giro. Tom Dumoulin (NED) looked stronger and clawed back half of the deficit sitting at 28″. What we did not know was that Chris Froome (GBR) was teeing up for Stage 19. You could not have predicted what happened on Stage 19. Yates would crack in magnificent fashion on the Finestre. With 80km remaining, after the Skybots applied pressure one after another, Froome would set sail and ride away soloing to victory and the GC overall lead. He leaped frog from 4th place to 1st. Not only did he make up 3 minutes on Dumoulin he added an additional 40 seconds. A mind blowing performance that has many wondering with his pending doping violation. Such a sad state when an athlete does something so mind blowing but you can’t fully appreciate it and help but to wonder. Should he have raced the Giro?
