GIVING UP ? NOT AN OPTION

Headlines :

🇮🇱 GUY NIV shines in an heroic effort to conquer 1st place .

BEN HERMANS could not drop the leader in the final onslaught

Story:

What can you ask from your team ? Only this: Play the game to the limit. Never lose hope before it’s all done.

This will easily explain the sense of pride that our Sports Director Lionel Marie had when it was all done and dusted after the 3rd stage of Adriatica Ionica - this afternoon.

“I couldn’t ask for more” he said , although the bottom line was dissatisfying as we could not dethrone the leader Mark Padun from team Bahrain Merida.

Lionel was full of praise, especially after what he witnessed today from Israeli Guy Niv. “The kid was on his fire today” he marveled. And Indeed he was.

Our plan was to try to unravel the leader and his team in the only significant ( but still short) climb on km 180. Team quick step initiated the pressure and were able to send their young talent Renko Evenepoel to aa solo escape.

At that point, the Israeli came to play and started pulling hard and setting a high pace to
Make sure that the quickstep man will not take a gap that will endanger Hermans second place on the GC.

“I was happy to see his performance. It was impressive” said Hermans who was hoping to finish the job and drop Padun in the small climb before the finish .

But the climb was way too short and Padun sticked to his wheel . Hermans finished 4th behind winner Evenepoel.

Bottom line: Status quo. Hermans still second on GC , 6 seconds behind the leader.

Final stage tomorrow. It’s a pretty flat and short 133 km stage but it ends with a 6 laps circuit so everything can still happen...
