Rohan Dennis holds on to the Maglia Rosa as he maintains the top position with a 1 second lead over Tom Dumoulin, defending champion of the Giro d’Italia. Four-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome falls behind by 55 seconds at 19th place.

We at 777iGame believe that Giovanni Visconti has wanted to impress his local fans as he arrived at the final turn with a couple hundred meters to go. He was, however, overtaken by Enrico Battaglin, who won his third Giro victory. When asked about this round, Battaglin had this to say: “The finish was a bit different to yesterday. Yesterday was really a powerful sprint on a really steep climb, today was a steep climb but at 2km to go, and I had a little bit of time to rest and recover and do a really good sprint.”

For the route of the Giro d’Italia so far of the 153 km leg which covers Agrigento to Santa Ninfa in Sicily, Battaglin has clocked in more than 4 hours. Things can change since it is barely half of the tour, so everyone, us at 777iGame included, is anticipating how the tour will pan out, especially since the times of these athletes are so close together.

“It was a nice day on the bike, on quite a slow pace because of the headwind,” said Aussie Dennis. “I felt a bit of stress every now and then but I am glad to be in the Maglia Rosa. We’re only on day five, that means sixteen days to go. Tomorrow will be another story with the Etna. I’m looking forward to see how I’ll go up there.”

Etna will be the end of Stage 6 where these cyclists will fight an uphill race up Mount Etna, a game-changer, we must say. The race will then continue over to mainland Italy, upward through the peninsula and into the Alps.

In this particular leg of the race, only 1 cyclist seemed to have had problems- we at 777iGame noticed that Miguel Angel Lopez miscalculated his turn, resulting in riding off the road and falling into the grass. This caused him to end the race 42 seconds behind. The Giro will end in Rome on the 27th of May, so we hope that you can visit us again here at 777iGame for more updates on Cycling.
