Romain Bardet has abandoned the Giro during the thirteenth stage. The French runner, fourth overall, 14 seconds behind ‘Juampe’ López, has been sick since Thursday and, apparently due to stomach problems, has had to withdraw after barely 50 kilometers of the journey from San Remo to Cuneo.

Bardet was one of the great candidates for the final podium. In the Blockhaus stage he was at the height of Carapaz and Mikel Landa. They were the three strongest. The Gallic runner, who usually goes on the attack, was one of the most anticipated cyclists in the upcoming mountain days.
