Giro d'Italia
Stage 10: Civitanova Marche to Forli - Stage Details

The breakaway has survived on a bizarre stage ten into Forzi at the Giro d’Italiatoday.

With an easy category four the only minor climb on the menu, the first day of racing after a much needed rest day was expected to be one dominated by the pure sprinters.

Instead, Nicola Boem (Bardiani – CSF Pro Team) raised his arms in celebration from the escape group, Brett Lancaster rolling across the line in the peloton for 19thposition as ORICA-GreenEDGE’s top finisher.

“Being involved in a sprint today was not our priority,” sport director Matt White said.
