Bunch sprint. Like we thought. Demare takes the points jersey with the victory, on 94 points now, over Girmay (72).

  1. DEMARE Arnaud GFC 4h03’56”
  2. GAVIRIA RENDON Fernando UAD
  3. NIZZOLO Giacomo IPT
  4. BALLERINI Davide QST
  5. GIRMAY HAILU Biniam, IWG

Catania - Messina 174 km

“You can sprint, but you have to get over this great big lump first.” Judging by Etna I wonder how hard sprinters teams (yes, I mean QS) will fight to keep this together? It might be another one for the breakaway.

Expected finish: 15:45 - 16:15 CEST

Not messin about : Biniam Girmay

Just in case it does hold together. I’m not saying it will, I’m just saying I can’t think of a good breakaway pick.
