Alessandro Covi (Team UAE Emirates) was the first to slip on the wet ground. Taking with him the pink jersey Geraint Thomas, Primoz Roglic but also Pavel Sivakov and Tao Geoghegan Hart.

If Thomas and Roglic left instantly, there was damage for the winner of the Giro 2020. Tao Geoghegan Hart remained on the ground and quickly told his teammates not to wait for him, visibly too touched to leave. He was taken by ambulance a few minutes later. After losing Remco Evenepoel and Aleksandr Vlasov, the Giro therefore loses the third in the general classification and leader of the Ineos Grenadiers formation.

A few kilometers later, Oscar Rodriguez (Movistar) made an impressive caper, hitting a road sign and then the wall of a house. The Spaniard was also forced to retire.
