Three seconds, four stages. Four stages are left at this Giro d'Italia, and three seconds is all that separates Jai Hindley (Bora-Hansgrohe) from the pink jersey of Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers).

The Australian has been here before, with a rider from the same team. On stage 20 of the 2020 Giro, he leapt into the maglia rosa, but was equal on time with Tao Geoghegan Hart ahead of the final stage. It was just one day in pink for Hindley on that occasion, as he was beaten by the Brit on a flat time trial course into Milan.
