GIRO D’ITALIA STAGE 11 HIGHLIGHTS
Colombian Egan Bernal tightened his grip on the overall Giro d’Italia lead after Wednesday’s 11th stage won by Switzlerand’s Mauro Schmid. Team Qhubeka’s Schmid won the 100 miles stage as part of a long range breakaway while 2019 Tour de France winner Bernal extended his overall lead in Tuscany. Belgian Remco Evenepoel was one of the big losers of the day, as the race resumed after Tuesday’s rest day, falling behind in the final 12 miles to drop two minutes and eight seconds to Bernal, who gained time on all his rivals. The 24-year-old Colombian was at ease throughout the day and perfectly mastered the final 20 mile section of white dirt roads that also feature on the Strade Bianche one day classic.
