‘The confidence is there’ – Weather hit stage 16 of Giro d’Italia no dampener for Julian Alaphilippe

Julian Alaphilippe may have broken his near three-year Grand tour stage win drought with the stage 12 Giro d’Italia victory but the Frenchman is clearly not done yet, with even the miserable conditions not enough to deter him from going out early in pursuit of victory again on stage 16.

Alaphilippe broke away at less than 30km into the 120km day of racing – shortened by the weather-induced removal of the Umbrail Pass. First he was out front with Davide Ballerini (Astana Qazaqstan), Andrea Piccolo (EF Education-EasyPost), and Mirco Maestri (Polti-Kometa), then he went it alone with 30km to go, off in pursuit of a second win at his debut Giro.
