The Giro d’Italia 2022 is historic for the country due to the presence of four Ecuadorians in the competition. This is the first time in the same version of the famous Pink Race that this tricolor number competes.

Richard Carapaz, Jonathan Norvez (both from Inos Grenadiers); Jonathan Caicedo (EF Education-EasyPost) and Alxander Cepeda (Drone Hopper – Androni Giocattoli) remain steadfast in their goals when the race is half over, with the end of Stage 11 on May 18, 2022.

The test will end on May 29 in Verona with a journey of 3445.6 km in 21 steps.

Karapaz is the main favorite to win this race, the same one he already knew how to be crowned in 2019. That’s why he has a strong team that protects him, including ‘Lagarto’ Norvez, cyclist Playón de San Francisco (Sucumbios) who works day and night for ‘Richie’.

Norway, for example, goes to the front of the carapace to cut the wind so that the team leader can expend a little less energy.

Also, like his other teammates, the ‘lizard’ gets into the team car to bring food and hydration to the carapace. These activities are part of the athletes of a cycling team.
