Egan Bernal is virtually the master of the Giro d’Italia edition 104. The Colombian from Ineos wins solo in stage 16, the Dolomites: queen stage in the middle, reduced by 59 km from the organization due to bad weather. A shot uphill before passing the Giau, 20 km from the arrival in Cortina d’Ampezzo, shows that the advantage in the standings of the South American champion is well deserved. Only Damiano Caruso manages to keep up with Bernal, together with Romain Bardet. Bernal also takes away the pleasure of taking off the now famous black Ineos cape at the last minute, particularly aerodynamic and used incognito also by some other team, and show the pride of being in pink and with ever greater authority. Caruso closes behind Bardet but is second in the overall standings, a constantly changing list with only one permanent center of gravity: the Colombian who wants to be a journalist after “winning everything”. And maybe someone will still have hoped for his so often evoked back pain: only pre-tactic, it now appears clear.
