Giro d'Italia
Stage 8: Moletta to Peschici - Stage Details

British climber Adam Yates has finished in eighth place on stage eight of the Giro d’Italia, arriving amongst the overall favourites on the uphill finish into Peschici. 

Ahead, Gorka Izaguirre (Movistar) claimed the victory from a surviving breakaway, five seconds ahead of Giovanni Visconti (Bahrain Merida) and 12seconds ahead of Yates’ group.

“Today went pretty much as expected,” sport director Matt White said. “We knew it could be a good day for the breakaway so we covered moves early to ensure the right composition went away. If it came back together, we knew it was too hard for sprinters and more suited for the punchy climbers.”
