Giro d’Italia stage 15 Live – GC battle on the Mortirolo and savage Livigno finish

Soudal-QuickStep at sign on for stage 15 of the Giro d'Italia 2024


This morning, Julian Alaphilippe (SOQ) did a special delivery for his breakaway partner from his stage winning day, Mirco Maestri (PTK). He gave the Italian breakaway specialist a jersey signed by Alaphilippe. Nice touch by the former world champion.

Will Soudal-QuickStep be at the front of the race today with the likes of Alaphilippe and, maybe, Hirt as he looks to return to the top 10 in GC after dropping to 13th yesterday. 

The riders are at sign on at the moment with half an hour until the official start. The neutral will begin a bit earlier than that. 

One DNS has been announced so far this morning. Astana Qazaqstan’s Vadim Pronskiy. He has fallen ill and has had to leave. 

Today has been described as the 2024 Giro d’Italia’s hardest day. 222km and five categorised climbs along the way including the Mortirolo. Although, not the hardest side of the brutal climb. But this is a day of altitude and high gradients. 

Buongiorno and welcome to Cyclingnews‘ live coverage of stage 15 of the 2024 Giro d’Italia!
