BAUHAUS SECOND ON STAGE 13 AT GIRO D’ITALIA
Phil Bauhaus narrowly missed out on victory on stage 13, as Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) pipped him to the line in Cuneo.
 
The 150km stage from San Remo to Cuneo saw a break of five riders form and had a gap of around 6 minutes. Within the final 20km, they still held a 2:30 advantage, and it was touch and go whether the peloton would catch them as the sprint teams frantically put in the work.

With 500m to go, the peloton bridged the gap, and the sprinters prepared for the slightly uphill finish. Bauhaus showed his speed in the sprint but could only place runner up to Démare: “It was a hard and fast day. We caught the breakaway with 500m to go, and the last km was slightly uphill, making it super hard. The team positioned me quite well with 1.5km to go. I could then start my sprint, which was a free sprint to show what was possible for me. But I’m super disappointed for second place. It’s a good result, but if you are so close, you want to take the win for the team here, and it would have been nice.
 
Bauhaus remains optimistic about his chances for a stage win at this year’s Giro as stage 18 offers one more day for the fast men: “I think there is one more chance for sprinters, so maybe I can do one place better next time.”
