Giro d'Italia
Stage 8: Fiuggi to Campitello Matese - Stage Details

ORICA-GreenEDGE kept a low profile on yet another aggressive day of racing on stage eight of the Giro d’Italia this afternoon.

As the general classification contenders flexed their muscles on the final category one climb to the finish, Team Movistar’s Benat Intxausti survived from a break to claim the solo victory.

Colombian climber Esteban Chaves was ORICA-GreenEDGE’s top finisher in 38thposition having lost contact with the group of main contenders with five kilometres to go.

“It was an incredible stage today,” sport director Matt White said. “Half the bunch was detached after yet another of the most aggressive starts we have seen of the Tour.”
