Giro 12 : Dioni star, Koldo 4th

Dioni Galparsoro was definitely the star of the day in the 12th stage of the Giro d'Italia. He attacked in the first kilometre and got away all alone for a long ride. He had a maximum advantage of 14 minutes but in the peloton the mind was set on a sprint. This meant for Galparsoro that he didn't have a chance and he got reeled back in at ten kilometres to go. In the sprint Koldo could maintain a place in the front, although it could still improve a bit. He finished on a great 4th place just behind the top three sprinters in this giro Bennati, Cavendish and McEwen.

Next time better for Koldo and next time could be tomorrow when another stage for the sprinters is scheduled.
