Spiraling Down G17-106
The descent off of the Selvino was fast and technical. Riders will enter the hairpin turns carrying as much speed as possible, brake hard, and then accelerate back up to speed as they exit the turn. Some riders are gifted (or fearless) at descending, others, not so much. Jose Goncalves (Katusha-Alpecin) and Michal Schlegel (CCC Sprandi Polkowice) were playing follow the leader as they picked their line through the turns on the tail end of the peloton.
