Ineos says goodbye to the wow factor

The great asset of Ineos to conquer the Giro d’Italia went to hell in the eleventh stage. The numerical factor was essential for the British in their aspirations to defeat Primoz Roglic, Joao Almeida and company, something to which they will no longer be able to choose to abandon Tao Geoghegan Hart. The Briton suffered a hard fall 70 km from the finish line in which, in the words of Koen Bouwman, he said he had “broken his leg”. Within minutes, Tao was taken to the hospital for tests.

“I don’t know what exactly happened. The UAE runner (Covi) fell and I followed him. there was chaos and Tao was pretty bad. I don’t know what happened to him, I haven’t been able to talk to him. Its a big lost. It was going very well. He was in a great position and it is very unfortunate to lose him like this”, explained the still leader, Geraint Thomas, who is now left alone in the face of danger. In this action, in addition to the Welshman, Roglic also went to the ground, but had no consequences: “I saw Roglic at the finish line and he had a cut on his hip. I hope everybody is fine”.

On the chaos that prevails in the present edition of the Corsa Pink, with numerous COVID infections and falls, Thomas explained: “It’s a tough race. There was another fall that I was able to avoid. The race doesn’t give us a break”. Unfortunately, that is how it is. Ineos continues to command, but the surprise factor has vanished…
