SANTIAGO BUITRAGO SECOND ON GIRO STAGE 15
Santiago Buitrago put on an impressive display from the breakaway on Stage 15 at the Giro d’Italia, crossing the line in second atop of Cogne.
 
Following his breakaway efforts and a fifth-place finish on stage 12, Buitrago fought hard to get away today as the peloton closed down several attempts. With about 100km to go, a large group of 22 riders were allowed to go, including Buitrago.
 
A group of three then pushed the paced and gapped the rest of the breakaway by 1:30 until BuitragoCiccone, and Pedrero picked things up and moved to bridge the gap. Once they caught the three riders up the road, they further pushed on, leaving them behind on Verrogne.
 

 
Another chase group eventually latched on to the race leaders, making it a group of six riders, until the eventual stage winner Ciccone continued to attack, dropping the group down to three, including Buitrago. Attacks kept flying from Ciccone in the final 20km and eventually got away from Buitrago to take the stage win.
 
Despite his disappointment in finishing second at the finish line, Buitrago was happy with his performance: “It was another day in the breakaway, and it was really hard to get away. Finally, Ciccone was too strong, and I ended up in second place. Obviously, I’m disappointed not to have won the stage, but it is also an important second place for me. Let’s see if there are other opportunities in the last week.”
