On a crash marred the 10th stage of the Giro d'Italia into Modena, instead of a sprint royale, Pascal Ackermann (Bora-Hansgrohe) and others tumbled along the pavement and perhaps out of the race.

Ackermann, in the points leader's ciclamino jeresy, and Matteo Moschetti (Trek-Segafredo) were among the group crashing under the one-kilometre kite. Both risk not starting stage 11 when it departs from Carpi.
