Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-Quick Step) says that the Giro d'Italia race jury "destroyed his ambitions" of points for the ciclamino jersey.

The jury relegated the Italian champion from the win on Monday in Orbetello to 73rd place, deciding he veered too far off his line and into that of Matteo Moschetti (Trek-Segafredo). The victory instead went to Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates), who originally placed second and now wears the ciclamino jersey.
