Giro d'Italia GC update following stage 18 as Joao Almeida loses time

Stage 18 of the Giro d'Italia has had more or less the same differences as stage 16 with a small change of protagonists and with one constant: The constant is Geraint Thomas, who strengthens his pink jersey. The change of protagonists has been carried out by Primoz Roglic instead of Joao Almeida.

This time the attack was from the Slovenian (from Sepp Kuss more specifically) and the one who was left behind losing time was the Portuguese (saving time thanks to Jay Vine as Roglic did with Kuss). Thus, we are left with the classification after these first two rounds with Thomas more secure as leader, but with everything open with two stages ahead with Tre Cime di Lavaredo on Friday and the time trial on Saturday.

Of the rest, little to add. Eddie Dunbar is now the fourth placed rider, Damiano Caruso and Andreas Leknessund continue to defend themselves like wild boars, Thibaut Pinot returns to the top 10 almost by accident courtesy of his search for King of the Mountains points and the INEOS maintain their strong position with Laurens de Plus and Thymen Arensman.
