Giro d'Italia, insatiable Pogacar: fifth success and homage to the young rival of the day Pellizzari


By John

Tadej Pogacar crossed the finish line of the 16th stage of the Giro counting on his fingers to five, symbolizing the successes achieved in recent days at the Giro. A victory that he snatched at the end from Giulio Pellizzari, the youngest participant in the race, who tried until the end to resist his attack, deserving a special prize: when he asked the Slovenian for glasses, as a souvenir, they were he took it off and also gave him the pink shirt, handing it to him and then hugging him.
A special moment for the young man from San Severino Marche (Macerata), who came close to achieving the feat but still managed to defend an excellent second place from the return of the Colombian Dani Martinez. Fourth and fifth place for Christian Scaroni and Antonio Tiberi, seventh for Antonio Caruso.
