Result and summary: Giro, 9th stage, 191km, Isernia – Blockhaus, May 15, 2022

Pedro Lopez ebony rose

We expected him to give up his pink jersey at the top of the Blockhaus and to see him lose contact a little before the middle of the final ascent seemed to go in this direction but Juan Pedro Lopez did not give up and keeps his tunic for 12 small seconds. Almeida is his new runner-up, Bardet climbs on the podium thanks to the bonuses at the finish. The general classification at the end of the 9th stage: 1. Juan Pedro Lopez (ESP / Tres-Segafredo) in 37h52’01” / 2. Joao Almeida (POR / UAE Emirates) + 12” / 3. Romain Bardet (FRA/DSM) + 14” / 4. Richard Carapaz (EQU/Ineos-Grenadiers) + 15” / 5. Jai Hindley (AUS/Bora-Hansgrohe) + 20” / 6. Guillaume Martin (FRA/Cofidis ) + 24” / 7. Mikel Landa (ESP / Bahrain-Victorious) + 29” / 8. Domenico Pozzovivo (ITA / Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux) + 54” / 9. Emmanuel Buchmann (GER / Bora- Hansgrohe) + 1’09” / 10. Pello Bilbao (ESP / Bahrain-Victorious) + 1’22”.
