Gianni Moscon goes down flat

The decision to shorten the Giro d’Italia stage finishing in Crans Montana scheduled for Friday (from 199 to 74 kilometers), thus skipping the Great St. Bernard, did not find unanimous approval within the peloton, as confirmed by Gianni Moscon’s harsh words to the microphones of ‘Rai Sport’.

“For me it was possible to race, if someone wanted to stop he could do so,” the Astana Qazaqstan rider commented. “The doctor did not order us to be professional cyclists. There was already talk last night about bad weather, changes, route changes. Okay, all true, but I don’t think there were conditions to shorten the stage.”
