The great polymath of the peloton adds another string to his bow. Already an economics graduate, a sports science student, a pianist, a climber, and an amateur meteorologist, Domenico Pozzovivo tried on the role of lead-out man for size during the breathless finale of stage 10 of the Giro d’Italia in Jesi.

After guiding Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux teammate Biniam Girmay over the stiff final climb of Monsano in the finale, Pozzovivo popped up to deliver a towering lead out for the Eritrean on the deceptive drag to the line on Viale della Vittoria.
