Any hope that Cadel Evans had of reeling in Giro d’Italia race leader Vincenzo Nibali have dwindled further after Friday’s 19th stage was cancelled due to snow along the route.
The Australian sits just over four minutes behind the 28-year-old Italian following Thursday’s time trial.
The 19th stage in the 21-leg race had already been altered because of avalanche threats and sub-zero temperatures.
Organisers say there are “adverse weather conditions and, in particular, snow on the stage route in its entirety.”
With snow and ice predicted, the Gavia and Stelvio passes were cut from the route.

FAIRBANKS — More cold temperature records fell at several locations around the Interior on Tuesday morning, though not in Fairbanks, and more may fall today as the result of a cold air mass that is holding spring hostage in much of the state.

Eielson Air Force Base recorded a temperature of 22 degrees Tuesday morning, breaking the record of 26 set in 1954. The College Observatory at the University of Alaska Fairbanks had a low temperature of 21 degrees, which broke the old mark of 24 set in 1964.

Never before has so much ice built up so late in the year on the Baltic Sea and in Gulf of Bothnia between Sweden and Finland — and records have been kept for 50 years, according to Swedish news agency TT.

“We have never seen anything like this,” says icebreaking manager Ulf Gulldne, to the Swedish newspaper Örnsköldsviks Allehanda. A stubborn area of high pressure camped over Scandinavia has contributed to freezing temperatures late in the winter and to the new record.

On March 29, some 176,000 square kilometers of the Baltic were covered by ice. The previous record came in 2008, when just 49,000 square kilometers of sea ice were recorded as late as March 25.
