Longish day out in the deep recessions of the Mezzogiorno sees a star-studded sprint go to the Australian Michael Matthews, whose Jayco AlUla team kinda crushed it all day in the hopes of this very result. Former world champ Mads Pedersen, a definite points contender, hung on over the climbs but had too far to come from behind Matthews to finish off the stage on a slight rise in Melfi. No changes on GC, where the Bigs rode relatively calmly all day.

One of the mixed finales that open up the possibility for a bunch of outcomes. What type of rider will have his eureka moment today, sprinter or attacker?

Lorraine Bracco of the Day : Fernando Gaviria

Did I say he was gonna win yesterday? I meant today, clearly.
