Giro d’Italia: Colombian Santiago Buitrago has won the 19th stage

Status: 05/26/2023 5:54 p.m

Victory on the queen’s stage of the Giro d’Italia goes to Colombia: Santiago Buitrago won on the “Three Peaks”. Geraint Thomas defended his overall lead.

On the super-steep final section over three kilometers up to the “Three Peaks”, Buitrago broke away from Canadian Derek Gee, who took the thankless second place for the fourth time in this Giro. The two had previously broken away from a nine-man breakaway to decide the victory among themselves.

Geraint Thomas defends the top

A long way behind the leading group, the favorites dueled for overall victory. The leader Geraint Thomas was able to rely on the first-class support of his Ineos teammates, who reliably escorted the 37-year-old towards the finish.

Second-placed Primoz Roglic tried to attack, but was not really successful. After all, the Slovenian got three seconds ahead of Thomas in the last few meters and now has a total of 26 seconds behind the Briton before tomorrow’s difficult mountain time trial.

Kämna is losing ground

The German Lennard Kämna could not quite keep up in the group of favorites, who had to let something tear off on the steep last three kilometers. Kämna crossed the finish line 90 seconds behind Roglic in 18th place. In the overall standings, the 26-year-old from the Bora-hansgrohe team slipped two positions down to eighth place.

The 19th stage of the Giro d’Italia on Friday led over 183 kilometers from Longarone criss-crossing the Dolomites to the difficult mountain finish at the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Since the cancellation of the Great St. Bernhard, the roof of this Tour of Italy has been waiting there: the finish at the ‘Three Peaks’ was at 2,304 meters.

The decision in the overall standings falls in the 18.6 km mountain time trial from Tarvisio to Monte Lussari. The Tour of Italy ends in Rome on Sunday.
