How to watch 2018 Giro d'Italia on fuboTV: Chris Froome secures lead in Cervinia
Froome made a huge push Friday to take the general classification lead
The 2018 Giro d'Italia -- a 21-stage, 3,551.2-kilometer race throughout Italy -- started with a time trial on May 4, and now 2017 Tour de France winner Chris Froome is on pace for a historic victory after back-to-back successful stages, including a Saturday edging of the Netherlands' Tom Dumoulin.
Froome entered Stage 20 with a 40-second lead on Dumoulin and proceeded to stave off his nearest rival with a 214-kilometer ride from Susa to Cervinia in northern Italy just a day after he finished three minutes clear of the competition in Stage 19, surpassing even Simon Yates and setting the stage for Britain's first male Giro winner in more than a century.
This comes after he jumped from fourth place, which he held on Thursday, and marks a remarkable turnaround for the Great Britain rider, who was virtually out of contention at one point, having not won a day until Stage 14. And it simultaneously marks a daunting path to the finish line for Dumoulin and fellow Great Britain standout, Simon Yates, who previously won three stages in a matter of a week.
Spain's Mikel Nieve won Stage 20 on his 34th birthday, but it was Froome whose performance truly shook the standings, upping his overall lead to 46 seconds. Barring an accident or an outright collapse on Sunday, he'll become the seventh man to complete a set of Grand Tours after winning his fourth Tour de France in 2017.
