Ackermann-repeats-against-Gaviria

German sprinter Pascal Ackermann (Bora-Hansgrohe) continues to be sweet on the Adriatic Tyrrhenian and has also won the second stage, disputed between Camaiore and Follonica over 201 kilometers, and beat Fernando Gaviria (UAE-Team Emirates) again to reinforce his 'azzurra jersey'. Ackermann, who in the first stage came back to surprise everyone, was better positioned in this second sprint fight and, despite winning again, it almost took a 'photo finish' to rule his triumph over the Colombian, second, and Rick Zabel (Israel), third. When there were 30 kilometers to go, the escape began to dismember. The strongest of them, Umberto Orsini (Bardiani), insisted on reaching the finish line triumphantly but was hunted by the peloton with about 15 kilometers to go. This Wednesday, the third stage will take place between Follonica and Saturnia over 217 kilometers. A day with a final route full of small heights, irregular, that with a last port less than 10 kilometers from the finish line could be ground for a break or to scratch seconds among the best.
