Massive GC leap for Storer after stage 8 of the Giro, third place for Voisard in Hungary

Following an impressive performance in the eighth stage of the Giro d’Italia, during which Michael Storer participated in the breakaway of the day and finished ninth in the stage, the Australian has moved up five positions in the GC, now occupying twelfth place.

During the final climb, Prati di Tivo (14.7km, 7.0% avg), Storer's breakaway attempt was caught. However, the Australian from Tudor Pro Cycling still had energy left. He managed to keep pace with the GC favorites and finished the stage in ninth position.

The young rider from the Swiss team is now in twelfth position, trailing thirty seconds behind the top 10 in the GC.

Yannis Voisard Hungary

Meanwhile, in Hungary, Tudor Pro Cycling’s Yannis Voisard secured third place in stage 4. A day earlier, on Friday, the Swiss 25-year-old crossed the line in fourth place in the mountain stage. In a short uphill sprint to Etyek, Voisard secured a spot on the podium, also gaining four important bonus seconds.

Voisard has his sights set on the podium, with the final stage taking place tomorrow, featuring three classified climbs and an uphill finish.
