British time trial champion extends Movistar Team's streak in the Grand Tours, wins ITT in Saltara against all race favourites - Intxausti suffers through the race, is now in 14th overall.
Giro d’Italia stage 8
The Blanco Pro Cycling Team continues to rack up the positive results in the Giro d’Italia. With four men in the top twenty, the time trial played out according to plan. Stef Clement ended up in a handsome fifth, whilst Robert Gesink moved up to third place in the General Classification and Wilco Kelderman captured the white jersey. Despite the good showing, the men in the Blanco camp are well aware of the fact that there are two more weeks of racing.
Almost perfect performance by Michele Scarponi in the time trial of the 8th stage of Giro d'Italia, 54,8 km from Gabicce Mare to Saltara.
