2012 Giro d'Italia, Stage 13 Results

World Champion Mark Cavendish (Sky Procycling) won Stage 13 in a sprint ahead of Norwegian Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) and Australian Mark Renshaw (Rabobank) both in same time as Cavendish. It was Cavendish's third stage victory of this Giro.

Cavendish proclaimed he has no intentions of pulling out of the race now that the race enters the Alps, saying, "No, I'm not pulling out of the Giro. There is still another stage for sprinters (Stage 18, Thursday) where I can gain some points. I know that from Cervinia the climbers will take them all. I know it'll be tough but I'm not pulling out".


Spain's Joaquin Rodriguez (Team Katusha) keeps the Maglia Rosa, saying "I felt I was one of the favorites before and I think that is even more the case now. Cervinia is a tough climb, it's unlikely there will be an attack before the final stretch but with the bad weather it could be a very dangerous day".

Two time Giro winner Ivan basso feels he is well positioned, currently in 8th and 57 seconds behind Rodriguez, saying "I know this is thanks to my teammates. This is the start of a new chapter, another Giro starts tomorrow, I'm relaxed and looking to do well. I can't say I feel stronger than in 2006 or 2010. I feel good, I'm confident, and every year is different".

Tomorrow: 206 km stage finishing in Cervinia. There are two very long climbs: Col du Joux, 22.4 km long with an average of  5.6%, maximum 12%. After the descent the riders face a finishing climb to Cervinia that is 27 km long with an average of 5.5% and maximum of 12%. Making the stage yet more difficult is the prediction of rain starting at 2pm, turning to intense rain,  and a cold 2C-6C at the finish. Also, a possibility of snow at the finish.  The real contenders for Giro victory will show their cards tomorrow.
