In Tuesday’s 229 kilometer stage, which led the peloton from Udine to San Daniele del Friuli, Nibali finished in the group with favorites. Almeida sprinted away in the viciously increasing final kilometer, but the difference with the sharp Portuguese was only two seconds on the finish.
Immediately afterwards, Nibali already looked ahead to Wednesday’s ride. “Everything can be different tomorrow. There are a number of interesting cols coming up. We have to be on our guard ”, he took a shot at the barrage of climbs that the riders will face for the next two days.
Slovenian Jan Tratnik was the strongest man in the leading group and won the sixteenth stage.
Kelderman himself was not worried on Tuesday after Almeida had taken two seconds. “Ultimately it will not matter”, the cyclist responded to his loss of time. “I didn’t really see it coming, but I had anticipated an attack by Almeida. That is why I was also in the wheel with him. ”
The final climb to San Daniele Del Fiuli after a long stage of more than 200 kilometers was short and steep. Almeida jumped away and punched a small hole. “He’s much more explosive than I am, so then you know it’s difficult,” said Kelderman.
“But those 2 seconds don’t mean that much. The next two days we will have tough mountain stages with long climbs, which is completely different. I had to get through today’s stage well and I succeeded ”, said the leader of Team Sunweb.
