21-year-old Gregory Daniel earned himself a year in the red, white, and blue jersey of the national road race champion Saturday in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

After making it into multiple unsuccessful breakaway moves earlier in the day, the Axeon Hagens Berman rider jumped clear of a small lead group in the final kilometers of the race and held on to solo across the line in disbelief at the victory.

Cannondale’s Alex Howes sprinted to second place a few moments later, with Travis McCabe (Holowesko – Citadel) nabbing third.

Groups were constantly splitting together and reforming over the course of the 187-kilometer (116-mile) race, in which just 25 riders made it to the finish line.

Daniel spent time as one of several riders in an early breakaway move that also included 2014 national champion Eric Marcotte (Jamis), but even after the move was reeled in he continued to fight to get into escape attempts in an effort to take the pressure off the team’s designated sprinter Logan Owen.

Owen himself jumped clear with Taylor Shelden (Jelly Belly – Maxxis) early on in the 12th and final lap, but the duo was reeled in inside the final 10km.

From there, Daniel and four others formed a new lead group with a selection of fast finishers giving chase not far behind. Less than 2km from the finish, Daniel decided to make a solo bid for glory, and it paid off.

“When we hit that final climb up Manley Road I just sat on and watched and I was expecting a move. There wasn’t a move that went and I was like, ‘Well, maybe everyone’s tired.’ So I just decided to test the legs and no one followed,” Daniel said.

“I tried not to look back but when I looked back I saw the gap and I knew I just had to go full gas. Because I knew at that point I couldn’t sprint. And then I just kept going to the line.

“I don’t want to make a fool of myself when I came to the line in case there was already a group up the road so I looked at the clock and saw zero laps to go and the timer at zero, so I was the first one. I couldn’t believe it. I was just like, ‘What?’ I just can’t believe it.”

Daniel’s win marks another big success for the Axeon Hagens Berman development squad, whose stable of young riders have racked up a number of impressive results this season. Daniel’s teammate Logan Owen claimed victory in the under-23 Liège-Bastogne-Liège in April, while Adrien Costa took the overall title at the Tour de Bretagne at the beginning of May.

Daniel himself claimed the mountains classification at the 2015 Tour of Utah when he was just 20 years old, and now he’s secured a 12-month stint in the stars and stripes of the national road race champion.

SANT’ANNA DI VINADIO (VN) – As Cannondale’s Joe Dombrowski crossed the finish line of the last mountain stage in the Giro d’Italia on Saturday, he admitted to being “a little different.”

After an impressive third place finish on the 20th and penultimate stage of the race — 134 kilometers from Guillestre to Sant’Anna Di Vinadio — the 25-year-old American could certainly say he achieved his objective of the race apart from helping Colombian teammate Rigoberto Urán in the overall.

That goal? “To try to win a mountain stage.”

Try the Virginian did in this Giro … And then try, try and try again. Barely a day in the mountains went by in the three-week race without Dombrowski getting in amongst it. That includes his eighth-place finish in last Sunday’s stage 15 mountain time trial.

Dombrowski may have lamented not winning Saturday’s stage in the Alps that saw Estonian Rein Taaramae (Katusha) win by 52 seconds ahead of Colombian Darwin Atapuma (BMC), with Dombrowski 1:17 back; but he can ride in to Torino with his head held high in pride.

That Dombrowski rode so strongly at the tail end of the Giro — his second grand tour after his debut in last year’s Vuelta a España — may well be a sign of what is to come from him in the three-week races. And he gave every hint of further hope by how he felt at the finish in Sant’Anna Di Vinadio, an Alpine village he knows so well from having trained there and on the surrounding roads which are only an hour’s drive from his European base in Nice.

“I may be a little different than most riders in that for me the third week is usually easier than the first,” said Dombrowski who is in his second year at Cannondale after two with Sky.

“I am not super punchy or fast, but I can keep going and going. A lot of guys really fatigue … “I think they [grand tours] suit me. [After] the Vuelta I was pretty tired by the end, but coming out of this Giro … I was talking to my roommate [American Nate Brown and saying,] ‘It’s hard during the stage, but I don’t feel any more tired than I do at a hard training camp.’”

Dombrowski believes he made best of his every chance in his first Giro, in which he currently sits in 34th place overall, one hour, 32 minutes, 56 seconds behind race leader Vincenzo Nibali (Astana).

“We came here riding for ‘Rigo,’” said Dombrowski of Urán, now seventh overall at 11 minutes 17 seconds to Nibali.

“That was for me the main thing, and then as a secondary thing, if I could go for a stage that’s what I wanted to do. But … almost every mountain day I’ve been up in the front doing something or trying something. Today was the closest I came to actually taking a stage.”

Joe’s big day out

In Saturday’s stage, Dombrowski made the first break of eight riders that escaped after four kilometers. On the Col de Vars where the summit was at only 19km, the break grew to 10 riders, with Taaramae and Russian Aleksey Rybalkin (Gazprom – Rusvelo) joining them.

The breakaway then rode away from a peloton that included all of the overall favorites, and it soon became clear that the day’s likely stage winner would come from among them.

The break split up and by the summit of the Col de la Bonette at 63km, Spaniard Mikel Nieve (Sky) led with six chasing: Dombrowski, Taaramae, Atapuma, Giovanni Visconti (Movistar), Tanel Kangert (Astana), and Alexander Foliforov (Grazpro – Rusvelo).

Nieve was caught by Dombrowski’s group at 85km, making a group of seven that became eight with 40km to go when the Italian Gianluca Brambilla (Etixx – QuickStep) caught them.

On the third first-category climb, the Colle Della Lombarda, Dombrowski made his first move, which saw Atapuma and Nieve follow and with 25km to go their lead was 14 seconds.

But then Taaramae and Kangert bridged across five kilometers later as the summit neared.

Before the top and with 14km to go Taaramae made his winning move, soloing away over the summit with a lead of 31 seconds on Atapuma, while Dombrowski and Visconti went up and over at 46 seconds to Taaramae, by which time Nieve and Kangert had dropped back.

From there to the mountain finish at Sant’Anna Di Vinadio, Taaramae pushed on to his win while Atapuma, also growing in strength in the last week, rode to second place on the stage.

Dombrowski’s ride was a well-planned one — the former Sky rider knew the Colle Della Lombarda from training there since moving to Nice in 2013.

“I know the climb super well because Sky’s at Nice and comes up here to train at altitude,” he said. “I tried to attack at the bottom because I knew it was hard and then it was not as hard. “So I wanted to make a bit of a selection. But there was a headwind coming up so it made it a bit tactical. I attacked a couple of times, followed some stuff. I think Visconti and myself weren’t really expecting Taaramäe to just chip off the front. There was a bit of hesitation.

“You look at the strongest guy and you follow him, and if somebody comes back you think, ‘They are not going anywhere.’ And it turned out he was going somewhere.”

Dombrowski conceded that he may have underestimate Taaramae, saying: “I think so.

“He lives in Monaco and I know he trains out here too. He knows all the roads.

However, Dombrowski accepted the outcome well. He also revealed that seeing his parents by the side of the road with one kilometer to go on the climb to the finish gave him a boost.

“I felt like I could win and I’ve wanted to win a mountain stage in this Giro since the start of the year,” he said. “And this was really the one because it I know all the roads; my family was there with a kilometer to go. I wanted to win really bad today but it doesn’t always work out.”

And how did he react when he saw his folks? With the broadest of smiles, Dombrowski replied: “I saw the big American flag, and I think I actually gave them a wave as I went by.”

David Cañada, an ex-pro and cancer survivor, died Saturday from head injuries sustained during a fall in a gran fondo event in his home region of Aragon, Spain.

According to Spanish media reports, he crashed into another rider, landed heavily on his head, and later died of injuries. He was 41.

Cañada won the 2006 Volta a Catalunya after riding into a key breakaway and wore the best young rider’s jersey during the 2000 Tour de France. He was once hailed as a potential grand tour winner, riding for ONCE, Mapei, Saunier-Duval, and Fuji-Servetto before retiring in 2009.

His racing career was marred by health problems, including a heart condition and injuries to his Achilles tendon. In 2007, he was diagnosed with melanoma. Following an operation and treatment, he return to race one final season.

SANT’ANNA DI VINADIO, Italy (VN) — They call him “The Shark,” and it was his attacks that won Vincenzo Nibali the Giro d’Italia on Saturday. Astana’s Italian captain went deep not just once, but three times to distance overnight leader Esteban Chaves (Orica – GreenEdge). It worked, and Nibali rode away with a gap over the Colombian of 1:36, enough to take over the pink jersey and seal the overall title with the race finishing Sunday in Torino.

Nibali surged on the Colle della Lombarda climb dividing France and Italy. Chaves and Spaniard Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) withstood the first attack, but could not do much when Nibali went again. He turned over his shoulder, controlled, and went again with teammate Tanel Kangert, who dropped back from the early escape. When Nibali crossed the pass into Italy, after the Giro’s overnight stay in France, he already appeared to be the 99th Giro d’Italia victor.

He seized the race lead after the descent and the final 2.35-kilometer climb up Sant’Anna di Vinadio. Only a flat stage into Torino remains tomorrow for Nibali.

“Those last five kilometers of Lombarda were so difficult,” the 31-year-old Sicilian said. “I never looked back to see how my rivals were going. Given yesterday, I had a lot of faith.”

Barring a catastrophe on what should be a processional final stage, Nibali will become a four-time grand tour winner in Torino on Sunday. He has already won the 2010 Vuelta a España, the 2013 Giro d’Italia, and the 2014 Tour de France.

The 2016 Giro never looked certain until a miraculous turnaround this weekend in the Alps.

Nibali lost time three days in a row win the race went through the Dolomites and the eastern Alps. First, it was 43 seconds in Corvara and then 2:10 in a mountain time trial. After the Giro’s rest day, he lost again on the Andalo climb Tuesday. It appeared over for Nibali.

However, he rebounded just as Astana teammate Fabio Aru did to claim second overall in the 2015 Giro.

Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNL – Jumbo) crashed in the pink jersey racing into France on Friday and opened the door for Chaves and Nibali. Nibali quickly refound his “Shark” self, attacking and dropping Chaves to the finish in Risoul. He distanced him by 53 seconds Saturday and Sunday he more than made up the needed 44 seconds to take over the race lead.

“I was always informed of Chaves’ time gaps. I kept pushing as deep as I could,” Nibali said. “I didn’t know I had the pink jersey until the finish. I heard the speaker announcing the seconds, counting back to Chaves. I heard the numbers go up, and I knew I had the pink jersey.”

Megan Guarnier (Boels – Dolmans) won her third career national road race title Saturday on a hot day in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, sprinting to victory after the peloton caught the last few breakaway riders in the final lap.

The 31-year-old bested Coryn Rivera (UnitedHealthcare) in the sprint, with Mandy Heitz (Visit Dallas – DNA) taking third.

“To do this two years in a row is a great accomplishment,” said Guarnier. “And maybe not one I even thought I could do. But I have a great support team. Evelyn Stevens was great today as well. And so I just stayed calm and looked toward the finish. We had to be really smart about which moves we were going to follow and which ones we had to chase.”

An attack-filled race saw multiple breakaway moves get clear of the peloton only to be swept up within a few laps on the 15.6-kilometer (9.7-mile) circuit.

After Nina Laughlin (Visit Dallas – DNA), Kathryn Donovan (Colavita – Bianchi), and Janelle Cole (Twenty16) were reeled in inside the last of nine laps, a three-rider move consisting of Scotti Lechuga (Hagens Berman – Supermint), Alison Tetrick (Cylance), and Whitney Allison (Colavita – Bianchi) made the day’s last attempt to escape the peloton.

The bunch swept up the breakers inside the final kilometers to set up a sprint finish.

Rivera and Guarnier were both positioned near the front for the bunch kick, with Rivera launching first — but the 23-year-old California native could not hold off the defending champion, who came around 100 meters from the line.

“[Compared to last year] obviously it was a bigger bunch kick at the finish and it’s more of a gamble when it comes down to that, especially with strong sprinters like Coryn. It was a tough sprint and there was a lot going on — of course with any bunch sprint there is — but I just had to stay focused,” said Guarnier.

For Rivera, it was the second straight year of finishing the national championship road race as runner-up to Guarnier.

“It was definitely hot. And the course was really heavy, so it kind or wore over time, especially being 140km. By the last lap I think everyone was feeling it,” Rivera said. “Our goal today was to win. I’m a good finisher on this course, and the girls were amazing. So I’m a little bummed not to have finished it off, but it is how it is and that’s how the race played out.

“Going into the final straight, I knew there was a dip, so I knew we needed to be careful to make sure that nobody was able to come through and slingshot from behind. Tayler [Wiles] started her sprint early and I had to jump, so that’s where I started my sprint, but Megan came around.”

Guarnier earned another year in the national champion’s red, white, and blue jersey with the victory, one more result to add to a 2016 palmares that already includes an overall title at the Amgen Tour of California.

SANT’ANNA DI VINADIO, Italy (AFP) — Astana’s Vincenzo Nibali all but secured a second career Giro d’Italia GC victory in Saturday’s mountainous stage 20, won from the breakaway by Katusha’s Rein Taaramäe.

Starting the day at 44 seconds behind leader Esteban Chaves (Orica – GreenEdge), Nibali attacked on the penultimate climb and put over a minute and a half into Chaves to snatch the pink jersey. With Sunday’s flat final stage likely to be little more than a procession, Nibali looks secure as the overall race winner just days after it seemed he was out of contention.

“I thought maybe everything was lost but also maybe that it still wasn’t over,” said Nibali, who had come in for severe criticism in the Italian press while struggling earlier in the race. “The last week can change and I thought something could happen.”

“It was a crazy Giro. A difficult, exhausting one for me,” he said. “I had a lot of pressure on my shoulders but I’ve put on this great show, so I’m happy.”

Two days ago, Nibali was fourth and 4:43 off the lead but the “Shark” went on the attack in the high mountains. He won Friday’s 19th stage as the hopes of then-leader Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNL – Jumbo) disintegrated when he crashed on a fast descent, breaking a rib in the process.

That left Chaves in the pink jersey with a 44-second lead to defend but once Nibali went on the attack on the penultimate stage, Chaves couldn’t respond. Nibali delivered the knockout blow with strong support from teammates Jakob Fuglsang, Michele Scarponi, and, in particular, Tanel Kangert – who dropped back from the early breakaway to be in perfect position to help Nibali grow his advantage over Chaves.

The Colombian now sits 52 seconds behind Nibali on the overall leaderboard.

“Esteban gave it everything. Nibali has had a very strong two days. We’re still very proud of Esteban — he did all he could and that’s all we can ask of him,” Orica’s team manager Matt White told Eurosport.

Kruijswijk, who battled on despite his broken rib, struggled up the first-category Colle della Lombarda alongside Chaves and lost his place on the GC podium to Alejandro Valverde.

The Movistar leader finished just 13 seconds behind Nibali and that was enough to push him above Dutchman Kruijswijk into third, 1:17 down.

Eventual stage winner Rein Taaramäe was among several riders to jump clear early in the 143-kilometer ride from Guillestre to Sant’Anna di Vinadio. Patience proved crucial to his victory.

Sky’s Mikel Nieve was an early initiator in the move, going off the front solo before ultimately being reeled in on the penultimate climb. As a consolation prize, he grabbed hold of the king of the mountains jersey from Damiano Cunego (Nippo – Vini Fantini), and with no KOM points on offer Sunday, Nieve will win the mountains classification assuming he finishes the Giro.

Joe Dombrowski (Cannondale), Darwin Atapuma (BMC Racing), and Giovanni Visconti (Movistar) then traded attacks up front before Taaramäe bridged and then dropped all of them on the Colle della Lombarda. He stayed away to nab the stage victory, with Atapuma taking second. Dombrowski finished third.

The 2016 Giro concludes Sunday with a 163-kilometer stage from Cuneo to Torino.

In a season marred by sometimes fatal motorcycle crashes in the peloton, there was another horrific event in Saturday’s third stage at the Tour of Belgium.

According to media reports in Belgium, two motorcycles were trying to pass the peloton on a descent, and one of the motorbikes rear-ended into the other when the first motorcycle braked suddenly. Details were sketchy about what exactly happened, but dozens of riders then crashed, with several being taken to hospitals with injuries. The stage was stopped, and later cancelled in the ensuing chaos and confusion.

According to Sporza, 19 riders were involved in the crash, included Stig Broeckx (Lotto – Soudal), who was previously struck by a motorcycle earlier this season during Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne.

Broeckx sustained serious head injuries in Saturday’s incident, and according to a Lotto – Soudal press release, is now at a nearby hospital in a coma.

“A scan was taken at the hospital and it showed that Stig has two bleedings in his brain. Stig is in a non-induced coma, but for the moment he doesn’t need to undergo surgery. He doesn’t have a skull fracture, but he does have a fractured eye socket, which will be further evaluated later,” said team doctor Servaas Bingé. “At this point, it is very difficult to give a prognosis about a full recovery. The next 24 hours he will be very closely monitored.”

Sporza also reported that 10 other riders have been transported to local hospitals, among them Jesper Asselnan, Tony Hurel, Pieter Jacobs, Loic Chetout, and Frederik Frison.

According to RTBF, the accident occurred at about 77km on Mont Brigi in what was the “queen stage” of the Belgian tour. Photos posted on Twitter showed riders being attended to by doctors and team staffers.

The incident comes following a string of high-profile crashes involving motorcycles in races, and has revived the debate about how many should be allowed in the peloton. In March during Gent-Wevelgem, Antoine Demoitié (Wanty—Goubert) died following a crash with a motorcycle.

The UCI promised to study the problem on how to regulate the complicated issue of vehicles in bike races.

Check back as more details are revealed.

Taylor Phinney's philosophy on bike racing has changed after his 2014 crash, which comes with both benefits and challenges.

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina (VN) — BMC Pro Team’s Taylor Phinney won his third U.S. Pro national time trial championship on Friday outside of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. In truth, he crushed it, besting Rally Cycling’s Tom Zirbel — a former national TT champion — by well over a minute. But to hear Phinney tell the story, the 48km out-and-back course was as much a battle of the mind as one of the legs.

“At the turnaround, I thought I was having my worst day ever,” Phinney confided when greeted by teammate Brent Bookwalter after the race. “Truly. The worst. Ever.”

The race marked Phinney’s first return to nationals since a disastrous outing in 2014, when the 25-year-old Boulder, Colorado native badly broke his left leg on a descent of Chattanooga’s Lookout Mountain. Since the accident, he’s become more introspective, which, for a pro cyclist, comes with both pros and cons.

“That was just the weirdest mind game,” Phinney said of Friday’s race against the clock. As I was doing my warm-up, I was thinking, ‘I don’t really feel very good.’ But you sort of push through that and you think, ‘Don’t listen to yourself, it’s 7:45 in the morning, and warm-ups are there for a reason.’ I started out pretty conservatively, and I was feeling good at first. But then, by the first turn I was already thinking, ‘Oh man, this is a lot more painful than I want it to be right now.’

It was then that the doubts set in.

“Honestly going into the turnaround on the second lap, I just felt like I was soft pedaling. I had completely given up. That’s what I felt. But then I was like, ‘What are you doing man? Go for it!’ It’s the strangest thing. I can go from being extremely confident to having zero confidence all in the same hour. Coming through the finish, I was pretty sure that I’d won. But 15 minutes before that, I was completely sure that I was off the podium.”

There’s little question that Phinney is more caught up in his mind these days, but he’s the first to tell you that he wouldn’t have it any other way.

“That accident helped me to broaden my horizons so much,” he said. “I’m truly grateful for the experience. It’s given me a completely different outlook on what I’m doing in life. It’s added a lot of clarity to why I ride my bike, but it’s also made me ask a lot of questions.

“I think that professional cycling — racing a bike — is a great teacher,” he explained. “There are a lot of really intense lessons you learn, about yourself, about your mind, about your body. I love that I know how my body works and how to take care of my body. I learned all of these things from professional cycling, and I wasn’t really aware of all of this before my accident, you know? I got into racing a bike because I was really good at it. It was something I could be quote-unquote ‘successful’ at. But now I’ve been spending a lot of time challenging that idea of success and what success even really means. So that’s kind of the journey that I’m on right now.”

At present, success — on the bike at least — means one thing only for Phinney: Rio.

“Since the crash the biggest thing that I’ve been focused on in my own mind is the Olympics. And I see the national championships as a stepping-stone to the goal of qualifying and preparing for the Olympics. So while I’m a lot more relaxed about the national championships than I was a couple years ago, I was here to win.”

And win he did. Asked if another year in the Stars and Stripes will help him lock down an Olympic berth, Phinney smiles broadly.

“It definitely won’t hurt. It’s a discretionary selection, so I’m not locked in yet, but I think this win was a really important step. I’ll put my proposal in, along with everybody else and hopefully I’ll get a spot. They announce the team in the middle of June.”

In the meantime, the BMC rider will continue working to recover his strength. He still goes to physical therapy two to three times a week, and while he’s experiencing success in short bursts, his racing calendar remains necessarily limited.

“I was initially going to try to do the Giro this year, but based on the recovery level of my leg — the strength of my left leg compared to my right leg — a three-week stage race just still seems a little bit premature. I’m trying to get on the Tour de Suisse roster, but that’ll be up to the team.

“Even though I have a slightly less powerful left leg, I feel very much stronger mentally. And I think that’s the thing that really matters.”

RISOUL, France (AFP) — Dutchman Steven Kruijswijk suffered a broken rib in a crash during the Giro d’Italia on Friday, his LottoNL – Jumbo team said.

The 28-year-old had started the day in the race leader’s pink jersey but suffered a spectacular head-over-heels fall on the rapid descent of the Colle dell’Agnello.

That cost him a couple of minutes and eventually the race lead as he struggled to the finish, with blood dripping from his elbow. After the race he was taken to the hospital in Briancon by ambulance with injuries to his elbow, knee, and ankle.

He underwent X-rays where the rib fracture was discovered. “[Kruijswijk] has a small rib fracture and is struggling with pains in his foot and side. New update, tomorrow morning,” said his team on Twitter.

Saturday’s penultimate stage is a tough one in the mountains with three peaks at over 2,000 meters (6,562 feet) to scale.

Kruijswijk is third overall, just over a minute behind race leader Esteban Chaves.

Vincenzo Nibali ripped apart the Giro d'Italia in stage 20, winning the day and coming within striking distance of the maglia rosa.

If it was the fourth quarter of a football game, Vincenzo Nibali threw the cycling equivalent of a Hail Mary, connecting the long bomb to put him right on the goal line with seconds to play.

The Shark’s daring attack blew open a somewhat blocked, back-and-forth Giro d’Italia, and single-handedly turned the race upside.

In a nation known for its exuberance, its passion, and its color, this Giro was a little bit decaffeinated, at least for local tastes. Sure, the racing has been intense, but the 99th Giro was lacking those larger-than-life moments that make the Italian grand tour so endearing.

Well, Friday’s two-climb smasher over the Alps changed all that. It seemed to pack two weeks of headlines into one action-packed stage. The GC changed, the pink jersey crashed, another favorite went out in a harrowing crash, (Katusha’s Ilnur Zakarin), and the Giro saw a fresh-faced Esteban Chaves don the pink jersey — only the third Colombian to do so. All stories in their own right.

The instigator: Nibali, who else?

Just 48 hours ago, Astana’s Italian champ was in “crisis.” He couldn’t understand — or rather, the Italian media didn’t understand why he wasn’t smashing this Giro. With all three of the “big four” — Nairo Quintana, Chris Froome and Alberto Contador — steering clear of Italy this month, everyone thought Nibali would win in a cakewalk. There were whispers of a mysterious ailment. A pact against Astana. Even the suggestion that Nibali was past his sell-by date. Starting Friday’s stage in fourth at 4:43, most had already written him off.

Not Astana sport director Giuseppe Martinelli, who said this yesterday morning: “We still believe in Vincenzo. Great riders can do great things. That is what sets apart true champions.”

Already a winner of all three grand tours, Nibali reconfirmed Friday why he’s the best Italian rider since the troubled Marco Pantani in the 1990s. With a long-distance attack that blew up the race, he won the stage, and clawed within 44 seconds of the pink jersey.

“I couldn’t express myself in this Giro,” Nibali said, as if he were an artist. “I just didn’t have my normal strength in the Dolomites. Today I felt like myself again.”

As the stage unfolded across the Cima Coppi and the French Alps, something special started to happen. A big group pulled clear, and the pack was setting a very high tempo as it worked up the 21km summit. Astana was like a pack of wolves trying separate a weak member of the herd for a meal. Nibali noticed that Kruijswijk was surprisingly struggling up the slopes of the day’s first monster.

“I noticed that Kruijswijk was not going very well, so I decided to accelerate,” Nibali said. “Initially, I was only thinking about the stage win because I was far back on the GC, but 3km from the top [Col dell’Agnello], I saw a lot of riders suffering, and I decided to attack.”

Chaves and Kruijswijk followed, but Kruijswijk swerved wide over the top of the snow-bound pass — either because he was cross-eyed from the effort or perhaps he was eating something — and flipped over his handlebars into a snow bank.

When the race is on, no one waits. Nibali later claimed he did not realize what had happened to Kruijswijk, only that he wasn’t there. The Dutchman never recovered, and the Giro was suddenly a very different race.

Astana played the perfect tactic, and called Michele Scarponi out of the breakaway, who sat up, forfeiting his chance for the stage win, and helped pace Nibali to the base of the 10-switchback climb at Risoul. Nibali kept pouring it on, dropped Chaves, and won his first stage of this Giro.

Nibali now has major momentum going into Saturday’s 134km, four-climb decider with the pink jersey still in play. With the day’s first Cat. 1 summit coming in the opening 20km, it will be a battle all the way to the line.

“I’ve always said that a grand tour is raced until the final day,” Nibali said. “Until the final day, anything can happen.”

Tomorrow the Giro will be above the fold in La Gazzetta dello Sport, with this headline (or something very close): “Grande Nibali!”

Vincenzo Nibali got the glory with a win in the Giro's stage 20, but his teammate, Michele Scarponi might be the day's MVP.

Michele Scarponi might just win this Giro. Not for himself, of course, but for Vincenzo Nibali.

Nibali collapsed on his handlebars at the finish line in Risoul on Friday, a towel to his face, his shoulders rocking with sobs. It was his first stage win of the race, redemption after a second week that left him on the back foot and embarrassed by his form. The victory came off the wheel of Scarponi, where Nibali has spent so much of this Giro. When Nibali finally looked up he spoke with RAI, the Italian broadcaster, about his Astana teammate.

“Michele was truly great,” he said, still emotional. “In this Giro d’Italia, he has sat beside me and believed in me until the end.”

On Friday, just a few days after Nibali threatened to drop out of this Giro, Scarponi set the Shark up for his first successful attack.

There was a plan, and it was executed. Scarponi made his way into the breakaway, which took nearly two hours to establish (an indication that everyone wanted to be in it). He was the first to cross the Cima Coppi, the highest point of the Giro, minutes ahead of the GC leaders.

Sitting comfortably in the break, Scarponi was protected from the accelerations of the GC group behind, which shredded the main field down to just Nibali, Esteban Chaves, and the maglia rosa Stephen Kruijswijk. Alejandro Valverde, third on Friday morning, was gone; the pundits say he’s no good at altitude, but all we really know he was no good on Friday.

Then Kruisjwijk crashed on the descent, and the day’s tactics solidified.

They say teams win grand tours. There are exceptions to this rule, but there’s no doubt that a team can lose a grand tour. Kruijswijk’s lack of teammates following his nasty snowbank tumble forced him to chase hard, alone, on the descent and then across a small valley, with only a bit of help from Etixx – Quick-Step. The team had no rider in the breakaway, ready to wait for the leader. Nibali had Scarponi, and Chaves’s teammate Ruben Plaza deserves special mention as well. As a result, Kruijswijk arrived at the final climb to Risoul with a 20-minute full-gas effort already in his legs. In hindsight, he didn’t stand a chance.

Ahead, Scarponi rolled a few turns with Lotto – Soudal’s Maxime Monfort, then sat up. He would have won the stage, almost without question. He’s already shown his form this week, finishing fifth in the uphill time trial (23 places ahead of Nibali, by the way). But the 37-year-old rolled slowly back to his team car, he stopped, grabbed a few bottles and a snack and prepared himself for the arrival of his leader.

The final tactics were simple. Scarponi pulled for half the climb, extending the group’s lead over Kruijswijk from a minute to more than three. When he swung off, job done, Nibali was already level on time with Kruijswijk, unlikely to factor with a crash-battered body. Thanks to in large part to Scarponi, the Giro is a two-horse race heading into the final mountain stage.

If Nibali manages to overhaul Esteban Chaves to take pink, he’ll have his Italian teammate to thank for the victory, and for encouraging him to stay in the Giro when things got rough.

Scarponi is a grand tour winner himself, thanks to the disqualification of Alberto Contador’s 2011 Giro ride. The 37-year-old was connected (via the nicknames Zapatero and Il Presidente) to Eufemianio Fuentes in 2007 and to Michele Ferrari in 2012, the latter of which resulted in a three-month ban. These days, though, he’s better-known within the peloton as a comedian. He’s quirky, certainly the only rider I’m aware of who trains with a parrot. Its name is Frankie.

Parrots aside, no domestique has had a greater impact on this Giro d’Italia. Scarponi saved Nibali half a dozen times already this Giro. A few seconds on stage 6, another few on stage 16. The importance of that time is now brought into focus, as Nibali sits only 44 seconds off the maglia rosa.

Saturday will be the final test. If Nibali passes — if he can take 44 seconds on Chavez and the final maglia rosa — he’ll have Scarponi to thank.

RISOUL, FRANCE (VN) – Esteban Chaves is readying for an almighty scrap for overall victory at the Giro d’Italia in Saturday’s final mountain stage after taking the race lead on Friday.

While the Giro finishes on Sunday with the 163km stage 21 from Cuneo to Torino, the fight for the overall winner’s maglia rosa will be decided in the Alps on Saturday.

The 134km stage 20 from Guillestre to Sant’Anna di Vinadio is the last mountain stage of the Giro and includes four major categorized climbs — the category 1 Col de Vars, Col de la Bonnette, and Colle della Lombarda, as well as the third category ascent to the finish line.

After Friday’s stage 19, 162km from Pinerolo to Risoul in France, Orica – GreenEdge’s Chaves is now first overall after starting the day placed second. Now second at 44 seconds is Italian Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), who won on Friday, followed at 1 minute, 5 seconds by Dutchman Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNL – Jumbo) who lost first place. Spaniard Alejandro Valverde is also in the fray, sitting fourth at 1 minutes 48 seconds.

Chaves, who finished third in Friday’s stage at 53 seconds to Nibali and two seconds behind Spaniard Mikel Nieve (Sky), is wary of the tight margins with his rivals.

“Tomorrow is the toughest stage for sure,” Chaves said after Friday’s sensational stage. “The last stage [in the mountains] always is, and now there are the riders within a minute.”

However, the Colombian from Bogota is certainly not daunted by the opportunity that awaits him, that being to win his first grand tour and also become the second Colombian to ever win the Giro — the first being Nairo Quintana (Movistar) who won the race in 2014.

An overall victory by Chaves would also mark the first grand tour win by an Australian team.

“Today we raced to attack,” Chaves, 26, continued. “Tomorrow, we can ride to defend the jersey and so stay more calm, with our feet on the ground. It’s also a short stage.

“If we take the jersey home, I’ll be ‘bellissimo.’ If not, we’ll have done our very best.”

Chaves is also wanting to share the opportunity and its outcome with those closest to him.

“I hope this dream can come true,” Chaves said. “This means a lot of work for my team, but we always believed we could do this. Thanks to my family and all who were involved and who have helped me in the difficult moments. This jersey shows that dreams can true.”

On Friday, Chaves was quick, as always, to thank the riders on his Australian team. He began his press conference by saying, “Before talking about the stage today [it] was a very special day for me and my country. The team worked incredibly; all of them were great.”

On the Col Dell’Agnello, his teammates were very active, first with a surge by Australian Damien Howsen and then Spaniard Amets Txurruka as they led the overall contenders’ group, isolating Kruijswijk before the summit and distancing Valverde.

Ruben Plaza also played a critical role for Chaves as the stage exploded. He dropped back to join Chaves following Kruijswijk’s crash. Nibali also had a teammate in front drop back to help him, Italian Michele Scarponi.

“We attacked early but had to do to gain time,” said Chaves who started the day three minutes down on Kruijswijk overall. “I struggled to stay with Nibali on the descent, but I stayed with him. I’m sorry for for Kruijswijk who crashed. I didn’t see it, but heard [about it] on the radio. At the end of the day Nibali was the strongest, and I couldn’t stay with him.”

Orica head sport director Matt White was all thumbs up for the outcome of Friday’s stage. But he is far from in celebration mode with Saturday’s crucial stage to come.

“We wanted to get someone in the breakaway today that’s for sure,” said White. “After [Thursday’s] stage we knew the racing was going to be very aggressive today with lots of teams looking to get into the break which didn’t end up forming until 75 kilometers in.

“It made the difference for us having Plaza up the road because he was so important for Esteban in the final third of the stage when the chasers looked to be getting closer.

“Nibali was very strong on the final climb. But Esteban rode really well and measured his rhythm and his tempo all the way to the finish.”

“Tomorrow is going to be a very difficult stage and we are going to have to be on our guard all the time, but we have one more hard day to go and we are really happy to be in this position.”

RISOUL, France (VN) — Steven Kruijswijk crashed into a snow bank, fell on his back and lost the Giro d’Italia race lead Friday, but his LottoNL – Jumbo is hopeful that he can take back the pink jersey and win the race Sunday.

The Dutchman started stage 19 with a three-minute lead over Orica – GreenEdge’s Esteban Chaves, but lost 4:54 because of his crash and slipped to third overall at 1:05. Chaves now leads the race by 44 seconds over Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) and 1:05 to Kruijswijk.

“Is the Giro over? No,” sport director Addy Engels said at the team’s hotel. “Even in the best situation, if we would’ve had the pink jersey, I would’ve also answered the Giro is over tomorrow evening. That’s also my answer now. But of course, the odds now are not in our favor.”

Dutch riders have won the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España twice, but never the Giro d’Italia. Insiders said this morning that it would be unlikely that Kruijswijk would lose the race lead in the two mountain days before the Torino finish. However, right after Kruijswijk crossed the Colle dell’Agnello and into France, his race lead fell apart.

“I was on my limits on the top, I wanted to eat and drink something,” he said. “I was following the rest, I made a stupid steering mistake, and I ended up in the snow bank. The fall wasn’t that bad itself, but my bike was a mess and I couldn’t ride on with it, and I lost the leaders, and then you know it’s all over.”

He went to the hospital for X-rays after finishing the race, but if everything proves to be fine then the Dutch WorldTour team hopes that he can rebound in the final mountain stage.

The Giro’s stage 20 races mostly through France on Saturday. It covers the Col de la Bonette and the Colle della Lombarda to enter Italy, where the final kicker to the Sant’Anna di Vinadio awaits.

“Tomorrow is another hard today, like today. In the end, Nibali was able to leave Chaves behind with almost one minute today, so things are open,” Engels added. “If he can recover … Until he crashed, he was one of the best riders in the race. If the injuries are not too bad and if he can recover, then maybe we can strike back tomorrow.”

Overnight, the 28-year-old will need to recover his spirits as well.

“I feel that I’ve hurt my ribs, my back. After the finish, I felt it really bad, my morale is broken,” Kruijswijk said. “Still in third? Yeah, but I lost the Giro here.”

UPDATE: Late on Friday, LottoNL – Jumbo tweeted that Kruijswijk suffered a fractured rib.

The Colle dell’Agnello, the Giro’s highest mountain pass, lived up to its billing as the Cima Coppi Friday. It offered a springboard for Vincenzo Nibali to redeem himself with a stage win, but also crushed Steven Kruijswijk’s pink jersey dreams. The LottoNL – Jumbo Dutchman crashed early on the descent, while Nibali pushed on with Orica – GreenEdge’s Esteban Chaves. Although the Colombian couldn’t match the Astana leader, who won the 162-kilometer race to Risoul, France, he took the maglia rosa from Kruijswijk with a third-place finish.

“I’ve won by rage today,” Nibali said. “It hasn’t been easy to handle everything that has happened over the past few days. I dedicate this victory to Rosario [a young pupil of his who died two weeks ago]. I’m very happy. It’s been a terribly hard stage.”

A large breakaway group went away early in the 162-kilometer stage, and as the Colle dell’Agnello began to climb, 2011 Giro winner Michele Scarponi and Lampre – Merida’s Diego Ulissi set off in the lead. Grinding a huge gear, the Astana rider distanced his Italian compatriot and rode to the top of the Cima Coppi alone.

Behind, Orica – GreenEdge was keen to test Kruijswijk, sending several riders to the front, riding a blistering pace for Chaves with 60km to go. Though the efforts shattered the field, they didn’t unhitch Kruijswijk. Nibali was distanced, but he chased back when the pace ebbed.

Close to the top of the climb, Nibali found new life and went to the front to drive the pace. Over the top, it was just the Italian champ, Chaves, and Kruijswijk. Notably, Movistar’s Alejandro Valverde, who was one place ahead of Nibali in third at the start of the day, was dropped.

Disaster struck on the foggy upper slopes of the descent, where visibility was almost null. Kruijswijk overshot a left turn and catapulted into the waist-high snow banks lining the road. He lost valuable time to Chaves and Nibali as he tried to get his bike in working order, with help from the neutral service car. Later, on the sunny lower slopes, Kruijswijk finally got a new bike from his team car.

“I’ve lost the Giro,” he said after the race. “I made a mistake and suddenly I was in the snow. I wasn’t really hurt in the fall but the bike was damaged. Despite all my efforts I lost contact with the others. It hit me really hard.”

He wasn’t the only top rider to crash on the descent — Katusha’s Ilnur Zakarin was seen laying in a meadow on the side of the road for several minutes, receiving medical attention. He later abandoned with a broken clavicle and shoulder blade after starting the day in fifth overall.

Chaves and Nibali found a valuable ally as they descended into the bright valley, linking up with Orica’s Rueben Plaza. With about 34km left, they looked to have a 1:16 lead on the pink jersey. They also picked up Sky’s Nicolas Roche on the long descent.

Under team orders, Scarponi stopped, abandoning his personal ambitions to wait for Nibali’s group. Lotto – Soudal’s Maxime Monfort carried on as stage leader with 33km to go. With Scarponi driving lead GC group, Nibali, Chaves, and company caught Monfort with about 10km to go, early on the 12.85 ascent to the finish in Risoul.

Early on the slopes of the final climb, Kruijswijk looked ragged. Valverde, on the other hand, found a second wind and was chasing only one minute behind his GC rivals.

With 5.5km to go, Nibali tested Chaves with an attack, distancing Sky’s Mikel Nieve and Ulissi, who had been riding with the overall favorites. At first, the Colombian had a reply, but then with a second move, Nibali got a gap. About three kilometers from the top, the Italian champ had stretched his lead to 17 seconds.

Nieve joined Chaves just before the final two kilometers. Their gap to Nibali was out to 25 seconds, and it would grow by another 26 seconds before the finish, where the Italian champ would collect his first win of the Giro. Chaves minimized time lost to Nibali to take the overall lead from Kruijswijk.

“I think it’s the hardest day of the race for me,” Chaves said. “Also it’s the most important — I took the maglia rosa. I’m really, really happy today. The teamwork — unbelievable, all the guys attacking the Angnello. I tried to follow Nibali, but he was stronger today.”

On Saturday, the new leader will face one final mountain test, a 134km race from Guillestre to Sant’Anna di Vinadio. Stage 20 features three category 1 climbs and a category 3 uphill finish. The Giro wraps up Sunday with a likely sprint finish in Torino, Italy.
