Carapaz Leading Giro and Other Cool News from the World of Cycling

By Monica Buck

Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?

Movistar in the lead

Nobody considered Richard Carapaz a threat until he stormed to victory on stage 14. And nobody expected him to hold the lead. However, with Roglič’s problems on stage 15, Carapaz is now 47 seconds ahead of the Slovenian. Can he go the distance? He’s got a few big mountains ahead of him, but he’s also got Mike Landa to lead the way. Should be interesting.

Primož Roglič had a really bad day yesterday, first a mechanical, after which he had to ride a team-mate’s bike, and in the end – a fall. Vincenzo Nibali was ruthless, attacking just as the Slovenian rejoined the GC pack. In the end, he made up 40 seconds. But he is still trailing by a minute. Vincenzo will need to push hard to gain advantage before the final time trial.

Looks like an epic finale is about to take place. Who do you think will win?
