After two challenging weeks in the Tour of Italy, the sprinters had the occasion to battle for the stage win one last time this Wednesday before the conclusion in Rome. A stage of a little less than 200 kilometer and without any difficulties linked Pergine Valsugana and Caorle in Venice.
Belgian sprinter Arne Marit, the protected rider for the final, started the last hectometers in a perfect position thanks to the work of his teammates. His lead out Laurenz Rex guided him towards the final kilometer, after which Marit took position in the wheel of the later winner Alberto Dainese.
At the moment he launched his effort, a jump of his chain unfortunately deprived the fourth of the second stage in this Giro from his chances. His teammate Niccolò Bonifazio, who took over, managed to take fourth place despite everything. Team Intermarché-Circus-Wanty collected now four top five and ten top ten results in this edition.
