Jai Hindley swapped happy first pumps with his Bora-Hansgrohe teammates after stage 15 of the Giro d'Italia, happy to have survived the Alpine mountain stage to Cogne so he could head into Monday’s rest day perfectly poised in second place, just seven seconds down on Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers).

On Saturday Bora-Hansgrohe had ripped the overall contender group to shreds on the double assault of the steep Superga and Colle della Maddalena climbs. The work by Lennard Kämna, Wilco Kelderman, Emanuel Buchmann set-up Hindley, who then finished with Carapaz and Vincenzo Nibali (Astana Qazaqstan). Everyone else lost time, while Bora-Hansgrohe confirmed they are in the game and perhaps equally as strong as Ineos Grenadiers.
