Liberty loses Gil

Liberty Seguros-Würth lost its third rider in the Giro, Koldo Gil, who had to abandon at kilometre 80 in Stage 16 because of tendonitis in his right knee. He has been suffering from it since he won the stage into Pistoia and took the mountains jersey. Despite being treated with ice packs and ultrasound, his knee did not recover. Gil will also not race next week's Bicicleta Vasca.
