Debut in the Giro, second day of competition in a great round, first volata and first victory for Pascal Ackermann, current champion of Germany. The powerful 25-year-old sprinter won with total authority in Fucecchio, in a day dedicated to Gino Bartali, as it passed through his native Tuscany. The triumph of Ackermann, the fourth of 2019, is worth a lot because there were against some of the best specialists in the world: Viviani, Ewan, Gaviria or Demare.

The Tiburón left Sicily in search of his opportunity as a professional to the fraction of Mastromarco, where he competed as U23 at the local club. Later he became a benefactor of the Tuscan team: "I am happy to return to the land of my friends" .

Nor will I refuse to fight for a partial victory. " A 28 km from the arrival, in full increase in speed to hunt down the escape, Carretero and Sutterlin fell, both of Movistar. Start crossed for the telephone equipment, which in two days has suffered the hard setbacks of the time lost by Landa and the fall of two runners.
