The Value of Team Work G17-23
Fernando Gaviria's (Quickstep) victory was such a powerful example of team work, that it was is teammate behind, Maximiliano Richeze, who raised his arms in a victory salute. Gaviria was so concentrated on getting the better of Nathan Haas (Dimension Data), Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek-Segafredo) and Rudiger Selig (Bora-Hansgrohe) that he didn't dare celebrate until he was over the finish line. Just out of frame was his other teammate, Bob Jungels who finished seventh on the day open up a minimum of 10 seconds on all of the GC contenders. Gaviria's win also made him the third to wear the Maglia Rosa in the 100th Giro d'Italia. This was the final day of racing on Sardinia. Tomorrow will be a relative Rest Day, as the race will take the ferry to Sicily for two more days of racing before hitting the mainland.
