Trek-Segafredo Team (Italy) - Press Release: Juan Pedro Lopez finishes second on Etna and claims the overall lead of the Giro d’Italia.
There was no hiding the sheer disappointment for Juan Pedro Lopez when he crossed the finish line of Stage 4 in the Giro d’Italia. He had messed up the final corner, and it caused him to brake hard. His rear wheel slid on the tarmac. Juanpe kept the bike upright, but a chance at victory atop Mount Etna was gone, leaving him a bitter second place.
Then moments later, he realized what he had accomplished. The coveted maglia rosa was his, and tears of frustration turned to sobs of joy.
