The race lights up in particular on the first ramps of the Step Glue (9.3 km with an average slope of 4.5%), where the best attempt is to Wout Poels (Bahrain Victorious), which climbs solo. While Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) immediately warms up the engines, soon the (apparent) ordeal of Tom Dumoulin And Tobias Svendsen Foss (Jumbo-Visma): in front there is a void Davide Formolo (UAE Team Emirates), on which they then carry Davide Villella (Cofidis) e Koen Bouwman (Jumbo-Visma). The scenery changes again on the first ramps of the Mount Sirino (24.4 km with an average slope of 3.8% and maximum of 12%): surprisingly in front of you can be seen again Dumoulinwhich together with Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) e Diego Camargo (EF Education-EasyPost) try to bring yourself back up Formolo, Villella, Poels And Bouwman. The mission succeeds ei 7 at the command they appear compact at the first ramps of the Great Mountain of Viggiano (6.6 km with an average slope of 9.1%): soon, however, they come off Poels And Villella, victim of a fall but then very good at coming back with a sensational downhill number. The scenario changes again on the ascent of the Saddled (7.8 km with an average slope of 5.9%): Camargo And Villella they lose contact from the escape, which in the meantime is severely tested by the forcing of the Ineos Grenadiers.
