Giro d'Italia

Biniam Girmay (4th) continues to rival with the best sprinters


The designated rider for the sprint finishes in the Tour of Italy (2.UWT), Biniam Girmay, continued his series of good results by obtaining fourth place in the sixth stage.

Except of a climb in the first race hour, the 192 kilometer stage along the Tyrrhenian coastline did not contain any difficulties and it was no surprise that a complete peloton sprinted for the victory in the streets of Scalea after catching the only breakaway of the day.

Thanks to solid teamwork, Girmay could start his effort in the first positions. With his fourth place, he achieved his fourth top five since the start of the event or the fifth of the team in six days.

« Even though my profile is more adapted to harder races, I also appreciate pure sprint stages like today. In the final 20 kilometer the battle towards the sprint was very exciting and tough. It was extremely nervous, many risks were taken and crashes avoided. My teammates guided me to the front for the final 700 meter, enabling me to rival again with the fastest sprinters. During the sprint I had to break several times, and in the end I was defeated by Démare, Ewan and Cavendish, who were the fastest today. I really loved this battle and I'm already looking forward to the next one! »
