Georg Steinhauser Claims First Professional Win in Giro d'Italia Stage 17

Posted : 23 May 2024

In the 17th stage of the Giro d'Italia, German newcomer Georg Steinhauser claimed victory with a solo mountain breakaway, marking his first professional win. Steinhauser, riding for EF, broke away from the peloton around 30km from the finish and tackled the punishing Passo del Brocon climb to secure the win, crossing the line one minute and 23 seconds ahead of the pink jersey holder, Tadej Pogacar.


Despite Pogacar's late surge in the final kilometers, he couldn't catch Steinhauser, extending his overall lead in the standings to seven minutes and 42 seconds over Daniel Martinez. The Team UAE leader is now aiming to secure victory in the Giro before pursuing a third triumph in the Tour de France in July.


Reflecting on his victory, Steinhauser expressed his disbelief and nerves during the race, admitting he had a feeling of confidence about his chances of winning earlier in the day. Meanwhile, Thursday's stage promises a flat run between Fiera di Primiero and Padova, providing an opportunity for sprinters to compete for stage honors, with the sprint points race currently led by Jonathan Milan of Lidl-Trek.
