The tweets of the day: Dainese’s disbelief, Marit’s tears

24/05/2023

There are thousands of stories within a sprint, and the Caorle one was no exception. The winner Alberto Dainese, for instance, is not a rider very used to winning and it took him a few seconds to realise that he was indeed the winner of Stage 17, especially since it took a photo finish to figure out the winner.

 

For those who rejoice, there are those who regret a missed opportunity. This is the case of Arne Marit, sprinter for Intermarché-Circus-Wanty: “I survived two weeks in the mountains because I had my mind on stage 17. We did everything perfectly, I had the legs to win my first Giro stage. I launched my sprint & my chain broke. I have no words” said Marit, visibly shaken and disappointed.

Once again Jonathan Milan was the protagonist of a splendid comeback sprint, which ended one centimetre from victory, just like in Tortona. After the stage, while waiting for the podium ceremony for the Maglia Ciclamino, Milan stopped to chat with the coach of the Italian national team, Daniele Bennati, who knows a thing or two about sprints. “You started too far behind again today, you make some comebacks that you could win by three bikes” Bennati told him.
