Tour of Italy: Kooij, feverish, throws in the towel two days after his stage victory

Kooij, 22, “had a fever during the rest day (Monday). He is not able to continue. Get back quickly, stage winner on a Grand Tour,” wrote his team on his X account. The Dutch team was smiling again on Sunday thanks to the victory of its young rider in Naples. But she is definitely experiencing a complicated Giro: deprived of her Belgian leader Wout Van Aert, injured since March, she also recorded the abandonments, following falls, of her Dutch road captain Robert Gesink, from the 1st stage, then of the Frenchman Christophe Laporte on Saturday during the 8th stage.

The day after the rest day, the peloton takes the start of the 10th stage on Tuesday in Pompeii, towards Cusano Mutri (142 km), at almost 1,400 meters above sea level. The Slovenian pink jersey Tadej Pogacar has a comfortable lead in the general classification over the Colombian Daniel Martinez, at 2 min 40 sec, and over the Briton Geraint Thomas, at 2 min 58 sec.
