Damiano Cunego (Lampre-Fondital) has now admitted that he can't win this year's Giro d'Italia, after losing more time on today's 13th stage to La Thuile. Cunego is now 8th overall at 8'58, a big gap to close to the leader.
"Well, it didn't go that bad, but the weather ruined all my plans," said Cunego after the stage. "I just tried to defend my position. I realise that now I can't win Giro, but can still think of the podium. So let's see what happens in the next few stages."
