MAGNUS CORT WINS STAGE TEN OF THE GIRO D’ITALIA! The Danish rider completes the set and now has stage wins at the Giro, Tour de France and Vuelta to his name. 

Here goes Cort! He’s got it! 

Gee is straight onto his wheel!

Just a few hundred metres to go! De marchi is going for it!

1.1km to go: Cort has left De Marchi behind! He’s onto Gee’s wheel

1.5km: Gee has pushed off the front! Is this the winning move?

5km to go:  Here’s a shot of the breakaway trio as they approach the finish.

Derek Gee has just put in a huge turn in a last ditch attempt to ensure they make it.

It’s really not looking good for the sprinters now.

8km to go: At this stage in the race, ithe advantage is tipping back in the favour of the breakaway trio!

What a performance that will be from them if they’re able to take this to the line. 

11km to go:  Just 43 seconds for the trio out front now!

Its going to go right down to the wire today.

Cavendish is sitting pretty in the middle of Moscon and Scaroni, his Astana teammates, at the head of the second group on the road.

It will be a huge ask for the Manxman to beat Mads Pedersen if it comes down to a sprint today. 

Although as we all know, you can never, ever write off Cavendish!

13km to go: Thomas Gloag (Jumbo-Visma) nearly hit the deck there as a Bahrain rider crashed in front of him.

Everyone’s getting panicky as the finish approaches! 

18km to go: Gee, Cort and De Marchi are still pushing on. They’ve got just one minute on the Maglia Rosa Group now.

it’s going to be a big ask for the trio to survive. They’ve been riding all day in the rain and will no doubt be starting to feel the fatigue setting in….
