On paper, stage seven didn’t look like a classic stage. A long coastal ride for 224km would almost certainly culminate in a bunch sprint for the peloton, one the remaining few of this Giro d’Italia.

The normal protagonists would be involved. André Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) hunting his second stage of the race, Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) would be hoping to put a week of frustration behind him, while Colombian sensation Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step) would be eyeing a third victory just one week into his Grand Tour debut.

For the GC riders, it would just be a case of making sure no-one dangerous got into the break and staying safe in the technical final of the stage.

Bob Jungels (Quick-Step) still held the pink jersey coming into the stage, and would be disappointed if it didn’t remain that way.

The Giro d’Italia continues on Saturday with a 189km stage to a tough uphill finish.
