He Just Needs to Finish G17-134
Fernando Gaviria (Quickstep) was working his way back through the following caravan as he passed Alex Howes (Cannondale-Drapac). Howes was filling his pockets, cages and jersey with waterbottles for his teammates. A rider for each team will be assigned the task of dropping back to the car, picking up whatever is needed, and then work their way back up to his teammates distributing goodies along the way. Gaviria as such a lead in the points competition, that all he needs to do now is finish the Giro and the final jersey will be his. Alas, there is today's mountain stage, another one tomorrow and then the time trial. By comparrison, the time trial will be the easy day.
