Impressive victory De Gendt!
26 May 2012
Thomas De Gendt of Team Vacansoleil-DCM won today's stage in the Giro d'Italia!
The last mountain stage included the Mortirolo and finished on the Stelvio which is De Gendts' favorite training climb! Being in the right break away with team mate Carrara gave him time ahead of the leaders of the general classification. On the Stelvio Thomas went solo with over 10 kilometres to go and gained more time on the main competitors.
With a great solo he reached the top and took the stage victory but also won several places in the general classification, being fourth at the moment.
In tomorrows final time trial De Gendt is aiming for the podium in the general classification. Given his time trial skills this should be possible for the Belgian rider!
Thomas De Gendt rode the stage on a set of F4R, a all-round wheel set proven to get you over the steep mountains as well!
