Giro d’Italia live in the ticker – 6th stage in Scalea: showdown of the sprint stars on the Mediterranean coast

It’s time for sprinters in the Giro d’Italia right now. After yesterday the Messina sprinters decided to win the stage between them, today’s 6th stage will also be a day for the sprinters.

The 192-kilometer stretch takes the group from Palmi to Scalea. The start is at 12:50 pm The route is almost completely flat, only at the beginning there is a fourth category climb. Perhaps an opportunity for Lennard Kämna to secure more points for his mountain jersey.
After that, however, sprinters are in demand. Two of them should be particularly motivated: Mark Cavendish and Caleb Ewan yesterday were dropped on the only mountain of the day and therefore had no chance to fight for victory in the final. Today they want to react. Arnaud Démare, on the other hand, is hoping for his second consecutive victory.

14:40 / 128 km – The time of the Giro on Thursday

With Diego Rosa (Eolo-Kometa) running alone with a lead of 4’02 and the group still reluctant to give the gas on the route from Palmi to Scalea, let’s take a look at the Meteo in Calabria. The sky above the Giro group is clear to slightly cloudy. The wind blows from the south at 9 km / h with gusts up to 22 km / h. The probability of rain is 5 percent and the temperature is 20 degrees. The best time for cycling: neither too hot nor too cold.

14:20 / 137 km – current race situation – 6th stage of the Giro

The breakaway of the day, Diego Rosa (Eolo-Kometa) rides alone in command. The advantage of the Italian is 3’37 minutes. In the main draw, the best sprinter teams continue to control events. Lotto-Soudal and Groupama-FDJ have everything under control so far.

Live lap – 14:02 / 152 km – Mountain classification: Kämna extends the lead

Lannard Kämna secured another 2 points in the mountains standings without a fight and is now leading the fight for the blue jersey with 43 points. 1 point goes to Thomas De Gendt. The fugitive Diego Rosa has an advantage of about 5 minutes with 153 kilometers to go.

Giro 2022 – 13:55 / 157 km – Rosa conquers the mountain ranking

The Italian Diego Rosa won the mountain classification in the only ascent of the day at L. Razza airport. An aide from Ineos offered him a bottle, which the 33-year-old politely refused. Nothing new from the group that rolls comfortably and still doesn’t cause stress. Lotto-Soudal has now lined up the entire team for Caleb Ewan. Rosa wins 3 points in the mountains ranking.

Live lap – 13:36 / 167 km – Diego Rosa first breakaway of the day

It is finally getting too colorful for Diego Rosa. The pro of the Eolo-Kometa Team tries to escape while in the front rows Lotto-Soudal and Groupama-FDJ continue to control the pace. Eurosport expert Bernhard Eisel is surprised by Rosa’s run. The former Austrian professional was expecting an attack from Rosa on Friday on his way to Potenza.

13:28 / 170 km – De Gendt takes the helm

As often happens, Thomas De Gendt fights in the front row and makes sure that the 6th stage of the Giro d’Italia no longer looks like a cycle tour. The riders are uphill at L. Razza Airport for the only climb of the day, Category 4. Even the man in the mountain jersey, Lennard Kämna, will not be able to run to the mountain points today. Today, however, the blue jersey cannot be removed from pro Bora-hansgrohe because his advantage over Mirco Maestri (Eolo-Kometa) is too great. The overall ratings at a glance.

13:16 / 176 km – Slow train instead of running pace

The whoop data from Julius van den Berg of Team EF Education-EasyPost reflects the current racial situation. The Dutchman rolls into the regeneration area in the group with a heart rate of 125 beats per minute. Thomas De Gendt (Lotto-Soudal) and Dries De Bondt (Alpecin-Fenix) roll comfortably at the head of the group. Mark Cavendish and Caleb Ewan use the slow train speed for a chat between sprint specialists. Fairness is very important in cycling. Hopefully this will also happen in the final sprint of the 6th stage, which will in all likelihood become a mass sprint.

13:03 / 188 km – Good mood in the group

The signs clearly point to a mass sprint this Thursday. Some pros mock the situation, faking the occasional attack with a mischievous smile on their face, only to fall back once the cameras are on them. Let’s see if any runners dare to ride the climb at L. Razza Airport with the 4th category mountain classification after 34 kilometers – calm before the storm.

12:53 / 192 km – Free departure for the 6th stage of the Giro d’Italia

The race director waves the blue flag from the traditional red head vehicle at the zero kilometer race. Lotto-Soudal blocks the road for the moment because the field is still in the city and one or the other roundabout must be crossed. Safety in first place at the start of the 6th stage of the 2022 Giro d’Italia.

Giro 2022 – 12:38 – The group starts from Palmi

Led by the leaders of the individual categories around Juan Pedro Lopez in the pink jersey and Lennard Kämna (mountain jersey), the field of runners moves in Palmi under the bright sun. The departure is reminiscent of a triumphal ride, because the narrow streets of Palmi are lined with numerous spectators. The group will now complete a neutralized race over the next 9km before the pros really start pedaling and the first breakaway group will emerge.

After Arnaud Démare (GFC) benefited from the absence of Caleb Ewan (LTS) and Mark Cavendish (QST) yesterday, today he must establish himself against the two best sprinters. Maybe Phil Bauhaus (TBV) will get on the podium. Biniam Girmay (IWG) is not the fastest sprinter, but he is always good at surprising. If our cycling expert Andreas Schulz is right, Cavendish and Ewan will compete this afternoon between 5pm and 5.30pm for the stage win.
