Giro d’Italia, bad fall for Landa: taken away by ambulance


May 12, 2021

At the Giro d’Italia bad accident in the final race for Mikel Landa Meana. The Spaniard of the Bahrain Victorious team was taken away by ambulance after the fall occurred just over 4 kilometers from the finish in Cattolica, at the end of the fifth stage, the 177-kilometer Modena-Cattolica. The dynamics of the accident involving the cyclist of the Bahrain Victorious team is perhaps due to a contact with a person in charge of reporting a traffic divider; Joe Dombrowski, who won the stage yesterday, was also involved in the crash. Less serious was the fall of another protagonist of the Giro, Pavel Sivakov, who came into contact with a teammate of the Ineos Granadiers and arrived at the finish in pain. The fifth stage was won in the sprint by Caleb Ewan. The Australian finished in 4 hours 7’01 in front of Davide Nizzolo. Alessandro De Marchi remains in the pink jersey.
