ORICA-SCOTT finished stage 12 of the Giro d’Italia with mixed fortunes after a bunch finish into Reggio Emilia today.
22-year-old sprinter Caleb Ewan once again suffered a mishap in the final kilometre, colliding with another rider and bending his brake pad into his front wheel to take him out of the final sprint won by Fernando Gaviria (Quickstep).
In a more positive result for the day, British climber Adam Yates continued to show his sharp form, finishing 17th in the sprint, ahead of a split, to take six-seconds on his general classification rivals.
“Everything was going well, and Caleb was looking strong, until the final kilometre,” sport director Matt White said. “The boys had contributed to controlling the break all day and put in some fantastic work in the closing kilometres in support of the sprint.”
