So there is only 1 sec different between Zana and Ulissi. Can Ulissi gain it back today? There is a 1,5km @ 10+% climb less than 10km from the finish.

Last year Pog attacked on the same climb and then he and Mohoric went to the finish, with Pog outsprinting Mohoric at the line.

I thought Zana was a strong chance for GC, however he was even stronger than I imagined. Jayco did well to prioritise this race over Dauphine and Suisse.
Pinotti was on an Italian podcast last week and said he was happy with Zana's development this year.
He's more explosive than they thought and has good recovery. They might give him a chance to lead a GT in the coming years.

The Jayco Italian contingent should be a chance in the Italian RR - They have DeMarche, Zana, Sobrero and Colleoni who can colloborate well in the race.

Frankly I've always rated his ability on short, punchy climbs and on hilly routes higher than his climbing ability. His climbing this year is the much bigger surprise, at least for me.
