Best is De Marchi at #12 with 33 seconds behind.

No immediate GC riders that I see. Nelson Oliveira maybe.

Good opportunity for somebody like de Marchi, Quinten Hermans or Edet to get a Visconti '08 run in the maglia rosa while the main threats manoeuvre themselves behind. I'd also say Taaramäe, but 4km at 10% with a 2km run-in to the line sounds an awful lot like Xorret del Catí, and 12 years on that's still my defining memory of him.

Edit: spalco, Oliveira is at +32" so he's best placed. De Marchi is the better climber though.

Or Conti gets another run with the maglia rosa after 2019.

Continuing the feel good factor from Taco's glorious win yesterday. De Marchi taking the Maglia Rosa today would be absolutely brilliant!

He always loves a day in the break. Seems to be going better than ever this season too.
 
Good spot on Conti, he's one of the best placed in the group too.

PCS now telling us Ganna is pulling.

With Montalcino and Zoncolan on the route, yesterday giving us a break surviving in a flat stage due to miscalculation and now an Apennine stage with a large and uncontrollable break and the maglia rosa coming to the front, the race has the potential to give off some serious 2010 vibes.

And, you know, the more 2010 Giro vibes we can get, the better, right?

Dombrowski's here. He may as well be next Arroyo. He was 12th in 2019. Back then he was a EF twins with Carthy but it was Carthy who blew up.
 
Under normal circumstances this would be Contis for the taking (actually picked him for todays stage i Velon manager). We all know what bad weather does though, so hard men like De Marchi, Hermans and Serry might actually be better in the end... if it comes down to a breakaway win.
