A couple of days late with the thread for this:


Italian national champion Elia Viviani was stripped of his stage three win at the Giro d'Italia for swerving in front of another rider in the final metres.

Race organisers demoted the 30-year-old after reviewing footage, with Colombian Fernando Gaviria declared the stage victor and France's Arnaud Demare moving up to second from third.

UAE Team Emirates have suspended Juan Sebastian Molano, saying the team’s internal monitoring system has highlighted "seemingly unusual physiological results".

24-year-old Molano was riding the Giro d’Italia as part of the UAE Team Emirates line-up but did not start stage 4 to Frascati on Tuesday morning. He was a lead-out rider Fernando Gaviria on stage 3, with the Colombian winning the sprint after Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-QuickStep) was relegated for changing his line in the final metres

Richard Carapaz won stage four of the Giro d’Italia from a small group after crashes tore the peloton apart in the final.

The Ecucadorian rider made it into an eight-rider split that rode away after a big crash that took out a number of overall favourites 5km from the line.

Former champion Tom Dumoulin has withdrawn from the Giro d'Italia shortly after the start of stage five after failing to recover from a crash.

The Dutch rider, 28, injured his knee in a heavy fall on Tuesday's fourth stage and was four minutes 30 seconds behind the leaders.

Dumoulin had been cleared to race by his medical team and the 2017 champion said: "I want to at least try."

Team Sunweb later tweeted: "Dumoulin's injuries have proved too painful."

Italian Valerio Conti took the lead at the Giro d'Italia after finishing second to compatriot Fausto Masnada in the sixth stage.

Thursday's events produced an entirely new top-10 with riders from the 13-man breakaway taking over and overnight leader Primoz Roglic dropping to 11th.

The Slovenian is five minutes and 24 seconds adrift, with Briton Simon Yates 13th, still 35 seconds behind Roglic.

Masnada edged out Conti to secure his first Grand Tour stage win.

Roglic was part of a peloton which crossed the line more than seven minutes behind with his shorts ripped from an early crash.

Eek at Dumoulin, hope he recovers in time for the Tour, same for Roglic. Don't think I know anything about Conti but well done to him.
