Giro d’Italia standings: The latest results from the 2020 race

The 2020 Giro d’Italia is underway, with riders having completed three stages so far.

It was a home favourite that took all the glory on his Giro debut, with time trial world champion Filippo Ganna powering to glory to take the stage and the overall lead.

He held on to the overall lead after stage two as Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates) took the stage victory, but lost the lead of the points competition to his fellow Italian

But stage three to Mount Etna changed everything with the two big favourites, Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) and Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) losing a lot of time.

It was Portugal’s Joâo Almeida (Deceuninck – Quick-Step) who took pink from Ganna with Jonathan Caicedo (EF Pro Cycling), stage three winner, level on time in second.

Rick Zabel (Israel Start-Up Nation) led the mountains classification after stage one, but ceded the blue jersey to Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) after the Slovakian took two points in the opening time trial and two points after finishing second on the final climb to the line on stage two.

Thanks to his stage win on Etna, Caicedo took the blue mountains jersey along with the stage win and takes a handy 40 points in that classification.

Still, the Giro d’Italia standings are of course far from final, with 18 stages still to come. Out of the GC favourites, Wilco Kelderman (Team Sunweb) is best placed in fourth place at 42 seconds, with Vincenzo Nibali (Trek-Segafredo) sixth at 55s, Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) in ninth at 1-13 and Steven Kruijswijk in tenth at 1-15.

Yates lost 3-46 in the end, finishing 25th on the stage with Thomas losing 11-17 way down in 53rd place, the Welshman’s future in the race now looks doubtful.

Here are the Giro d’Itala 2020 standings after stage three:
