Giro d'Italia
Stage 14: Treviso to Valdobbiadene (ITT) - Stage Details

Former Australian time trial champion Luke Durbridge has put in a strong performance for tenth place on the tough stage 14 time trial at the Giro d’Italia.

The 59.4km trip from Treviso to Valdobbiadene featured a flat and open first half, before a more challenging undulating latter half featuring a category three climb.

Not a particularly suiting parcours for Durbridge, sport director Matt White was pleased with the 24-year-old’s ride of 1:19:28 to be one-minute 36seconds behind stage winner Vasil Kiryienka (Team Sky).

“Luke has had a really good ride, one of the smoothest rides I think I have ever seen him do,” sport director Matt White said.
