Magical day for Dowsett. Nibali takes Pink

New, 104 comments

It was a day where everyone expected Bradley Wiggins would take charge of the Giro and put big chunks of time into all the other competitors. A surprisingly weak start put paid to that and the end result was far from the expected. A strong and well paced ride gave Alex Dowsett, Movistar, the stage win instead and the race lead went to Vincenzo Nibali of Astana.
