2013 Giro – Stage 11 – Something to celebrate

NavardauskasGiro

Ramunas Navardauskas (GRM) has provided a reason for the Garmin-Sharp team to break out the champagne with a win on the 11th stage of the race. For the team, which had high hopes for the overall and Ryder Hesjedal, they were instead left licking their wounds after the first 10 stages with Hesjedal tumbling out of contention. At this point, Navardauskas has brought back a reason for optimism as stage wins will be all that are available to Garmin in this year’s Giro.

The peloton looked happy to let the break off the leash today after a difficult day yesterday. No changes in the overall other than Benat Intxausti who snuck away from the peloton in the final few hundred meters and took back 18 seconds and moved back into the top ten.
