Giro d'Italia
Stage 17: Tirano to Lugano - Stage Details

New Zealander Sam Bewley was ORICA-GreenEDGE’s top finisher as the Giro d’Italia visited Switzerland for a stage 17 finish in Lugano today.

Bewley finished in the first large group (41st) behind the sprint victory of Sacha Modolo (Lampre-Merida) as a fast decent in the finale split the bunch behind.

After the effort that was yesterday’s queen stage, today’s stage was more textbook as a small three-man break was controlled and proceedings always looked like coming down to a sprint.

“We were prepared for the worst at the start because that has been the trend of this year’s Giro,” sport director Matt White said.
