Briton Simon Yates prepares for the brutal stage of the Giro d’Italia to Blockhaus

HHello and welcome to our live blog of the ninth stage of the Giro d’Italia, the 191 kilometer race from Isernia to Blockhaus.

After yesterday’s stage around Naples, won by the evergreen Thomas De Gendt (Lotto-Soudal) of a breakaway, there have been no changes to the top of each of the major rankings and therefore João Pedro Lopes (Trek-Segafredo), Arnaud Demar (Grupama-FDJ), Koen Bouwman (Jumbo-Visma) will be dressed in the pink, cyclamen and blue jerseys, respectively, as leaders in the overall rankings, points and mountains. As runner-up in the youth classification, Mauri Vansevenant (Quick Step-Alpha Vinyl) will wear the white jersey on behalf of López.
