Giro Rosa
Stage 9: Centola fraz Palinuro - Polla - Stage Details

The penultimate day of the Giro Rosa concluded with a reduce bunch sprint after trio of leader’s were caught inside the final three kilometres after another hard stage.

The day saw splits in the peloton due to challenging climbs during the first half of the stage and high temperatures.  ORICA-SCOTT successfully stayed in contention to retain their position on the general classification.

“It was really hot again today and the bunch was pretty lethargic,” explained sport director Gene Bates. “Really it was a race of attrition, people were getting dropped because of the heat with it being day nine.”
