Giro d'Italia
Stage 7: Grosseto to Fiuggi - Stage Details

2014 Liege – Bastogne – Liege champion Simon Gerrans has sprinted to third place after a grueling 264km, seven hour 22minutes stage into Fiuggi at the Giro d’Italia today.

Gerrans was supported by the full commitment of the entire ORICA-GreenEDGEteam on the seventh stage, the Australian sprint train leading the way in the final kilometre.

“I am very proud of how the boys rode today,” sport director Matt White said.

“It was like a Classic today, a Classic after seven days of racing. So what that meant is that we had a mentality of a one-day race and every single rider did exactly what was asked of them and delivered right to the end.”
