They say the Giro d'Italia breeds chaos like no other Grand Tour. In any case, the km leg from Alghero to Olbia, flat save for a trio of fourth-category climbs, was meant to end in a bunch kick and the pink the jersey on the shoulders of one of the peloton's fastmen. And it only got bigger, as Bennett urged his lead-out man to crack on over race radio. As he did so, the riders who everyone had been talking about enacted a somewhat futile sprint for second place, Ewan getting there ahead of Andre Greipel Lotto Soudal and Giacomo Nizzolo Trek-Segafredo — all no doubt bitterly disappointed. It worked out — victory for the team, first professional victory for me, maglia rosa. I think I will need many weeks to take this victory in.
