Giro d'Italia
Stage 12: Imola to Vicenzo (Monte Berico) - Stage Details

Wet conditions shaped a hazardous day of racing for stage 12 of the Giro d’Italia, stage three winner Michael Matthews getting through unscathed to be with the front group on the short climb to the finish.

BMC Racing led a late catch of two escapees in the final kilometre to launch Phillippe Gilbert to victory, whilst Matthews lost contact in the final metres to roll across the line in 32nd place.

“It took 70km for the break to go today, it was incredible,” White said of the day’s racing. “There were very straight roads, not too much wind and attack after attack.”
