Total domination and third victory for Jonathan Milan at the 2024 Giro d'Italia. The Lidl-Trek sprinter dominated in the thirteenth stage, the 179 kilometer Riccione-Cento, beating the Polish Stanislaw Aniolkowski (Cofidis) and the German Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain-Victorious) in the sprint: Gaviria had tried to get ahead of everyone by starting from behind , but the Friulian runner made the most of his team's work in the final kilometres. Nothing changes from the point of view of the general classification, Tadej Pogacar remains in the pink jersey (the Slovenian is also the best climber, with the blue jersey on his shoulders) while Milan itself has strengthened its position at the top of the points classification (shirt cyclamen). Antonio Tiberi (Bahrain Victorius) remains in the white jersey of best youngster with 56″ on Zana. Tomorrow the second and final individual time trial, the Castiglione delle Stiviere-Desenzano del Garda of 31.2 kilometres: great favorite Filippo Ganna, the Italian wants to return to success after the disappointment in the seventh stage.
