Ineos Grenadiers pile on the pressure on Giro d’Italia’s Mount Etna stage

Following the Giro d’Italia Budapest time trial on Saturday Ineos Grenadiers celebrated a notable collective display of strength that saw them place four riders in the top 20 and once again on Mount Etna, rather than individual success, the British squad turned in another impressively powerful group performance.

Sicilian-born former Giro d’Italia leader Salvatore Puccio and British national champion Ben Swift did much of the spadework keeping the daylong break of 14 within an acceptable distance-wise time, then Jhonathan Narvaez, Pavel Sivakov and Richie Porte upped the pace hard in the group on the steepest sections of the climbs.
