Pogacar Poised for Giro d'Italia Triumph After Dominant Penultimate Stage Win

Posted : 25 May 2024

Tadej Pogacar is on the brink of victory at the Giro d'Italia after an impressive performance in Saturday's penultimate stage. The Slovenian cyclist, riding a bright pink bike to match his leader's jersey, dominated the competition to secure his sixth stage win in his debut Giro. This victory positions Pogacar to be crowned champion following Sunday's ceremonial ride around Rome, barring any unforeseen disasters.


Pogacar has demonstrated overwhelming superiority throughout the race, maintaining a nearly 10-minute lead over his closest rival, Daniel Martinez. His commanding performance brings him close to achieving the rare Giro-Tour de France double, a feat not accomplished since Marco Pantani's triumph in 1998. The Slovenian's aggressive move with 36 kilometers remaining left young Italian Giulio Pellizzari behind, showcasing Pogacar's exceptional form and strategic prowess.


During the stage, Pogacar's teammates provided crucial support, helping him maintain a significant lead over his competitors. By the time he reached the summit of Monte Grappa for the second time, Pogacar had extended his advantage, further solidifying his dominance.


Despite his intense effort, he managed to engage with fans, handing a young supporter his water bottle and giving a thumbs up to the cheering crowds in Bassano del Grappa as he celebrated another victory.
