What's the record number of stage wins in one Giro btw?

I asked google but didn't find anything on the first two looks.
According to PCS for today’s stage.

So he could theoretically get to the tie at 7 if the cards fall his way.
 
What are Decathlon doing with VPP? Looked the second strongest climber in the race and have had him by O’Connor’s side ever since his stage win - seems strange. He can defo win another stage if he is allowed to go for it, and O’Connor is not looking great
in the pre-stage interview, APP just said that him and Baudin will try to join the breakaway today. VPP will stay around O'Connor.
 
One of the hardest stages of this year's race for sure. Should be very important for the podium fight.

I am almost sure that the breakaway will arrive as today its a very important day for the mountains jersey so riders like Geshcke and Scaroni should try to enter there. even though I think Pogačar will win it in the end.

I will go with Pozzovivo to win this from the breakaway, among the top5 riders, I expect Tiberi to suffer more here.
