As he pedalled towards the Team Sky bus following the third stage of the Giro d'Italia, Geraint Thomas was left with mixed feelings after coming through a tough, windy day with his GC options intact, but having missed out on a late split. Classics-stye racing in echelons is an in-house speciality for the Welshman, and Sky were on or near the front as the critical moment for the splits approached, around 12 kilometres to go on the exposed finale of the stage to Cagliari. But on this occasion a slight collision with another rider left Thomas too far back just as Quick-Step Floors made their final acceleration to go clear, and Thomas was unable to get past enough riders to make the split. I tried to bridge it, almost got across, but it was just too much. On the plus side, Thomas said, he had got through what was a difficult stage and three tough days in Sardinia unscathed. It's 15 or 20 seconds, which isn't much. Thomas later commented it would have been good for morale to be up there with the Quick-Step Floors move, but his teammate and co-leader Mikel Landa said the principal objective, making it through the initial stages in Sardinina unscathed, had been achieved.
Moscon was originally meant to take on a team leadership role in the Giro alongside Egan Bernal, but the Colombian will now miss the race after crashing in training and breaking his collarbone. Moscon will apparently miss the race due to a poor run of form, which saw him trying to build his condition in the spring Classics after an early season marred by setbacks. The year-old Italian made his return by winning three one-day races and the Tour of Guangxi overall classification.

Mauro Vegni, the head of cycling at RCS Sport is understandably proud of the work he and his team have done to create a mountainous but balanced route for the Giro d'Italia in The race looks set to produce some spectacular racing in stunning locations, while also celebrating the year history of the Corsa Rosa. Vegni has worked in professional cycling for over 40 years and creates each race route with passion and attention to detail. He is already thinking ahead to future editions of the race, with more international starts likely but he is keen that the Giro d'Italia celebrates everything about Italy and Italian cycling. He has created the route like a skilled tailor makes a made to measure suit. He appears to have created a parcours that is perfect for a duel between winner Vincenzo Nibali and rival Italian Fabio Aru. However, he is also working hard to convince some of the other biggest names in Grand Tour racing that winning the th edition of the Giro d'Italia would be something on their palmares.
The war years had been terrible, with many losses that had also affected the world of sports and tremendous destruction in the regions of Veneto and Friuli and poverty in the rest of Italy. In that sad period, the Gazzetta kept the cycling movement alive, organizing the Milano-Sanremo and Lombardy races and so it could not miss the appointment in The first act of the Giro was to go to Trieste and Trento , which had been won back from the Austrians. In these two cities, where it was given a triumphant welcome, Costante Giradengo raced by wearing the Champion of Italy jersey with the colours of the Italian flag, bearing the message of reconquered Italy. There were a lot of difficulties on the route because in the terrible years of the war, the roads had been abandoned to their fate and essential services were lacking everywhere. For example the Tagliamento River had to be crossed on foot, because there were no bridges, but luckily it was dry. The Milan Army Corps guaranteed assistance to carry luggage with an 18 BL lorry left over from the war, and the bicycle manufacturers offered thirty bicycles.
Elia Viviani Team Sky had looked a shoo-in for Team Sky's Giro d'Italia squad but the Italian sprinter has been surprisingly left out, with the squad entirely built around the overall hopes of Geraint Thomas and Mikel Landa. Viviani, who is currently racing at the Tour de Romandie and chasing his first win of the season, told Cyclingnews that he was disappointed to miss the th edition of the race but that he fully understand the team's decision to support their GC ambitions with a climber-based team. I understand the tactic from the team. I wanted to be there but that's the decision. I'll do Tour of California and I go for stages there. It's the th edition and it's a special one to miss. This is the team's decision and we'll go per cent for Thomas.
