Martin looks to finish Giro with top-10 in GC after stage 20

Dan Martin emptied the tank for the penultimate time during the 20th stage of the Giro d’Italia.

With the help the team, the Irish climber maintained his top-10 position in the GC by finishing 14th in a very challenging stage that featured three tough climbs.

What’s left in the Giro is a semi-long time trial to Milan on Sunday. Martin’s top-10 does not seem in danger going into the final day.

Israel Start-Up Nation has two riders who will aim for a great result in the last stage. Patrick Bevin and Matthias Brändle are ISN’s two ITT-specialists.
