I love the reaction of Walscheid just before the finish line realising Nizzolo wins. Well deserved for the whole team and of course Jack himself, easy to see the importance. Sports moment with story at its best.

Very nice pictures, yes. I also liked that Nizzolo didn't start celebrating until he crossed the line, shows that he was focused on what's most important.
 
Would've been nice for Affini as well.

But that probably was the strongest sprint of Nizzolo's entire career. It couldn't have been further away from the "everlasting 2nd, born loser" tag that was looming around his name so far. Because if he doesn't take the risk to open up a long sprint, Affini obviously gets away with the stage win. Both strength and tactical sense to perfectly use slipstream.

Strong sprint. Well deserved.
 
Gaviria sprinted without a saddle.
