Ulissi wins again on Giro d’Italia stage 11, Jungels strengthens lead

by CyclingTips

Joining a dangerous two man break inside the final five kilometres and then sprinting powerfully to the line, Diego Ulissi clocked up his second stage win of this year’s Giro d’Italia on the streets of Asolo.

The Lampre-Merida rider beat Andrey Amador (Movisar) and race leader Bob Jungels (Etixx-QuickStep), with the latter riding brilliantly on his first day in pink. The trio finished 13 seconds over a group containing the bulk of the general classification contenders, with Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek-Segafredo) leading those chasers home.

Missing from the pursuit were past Maglia Rosa Gianluca Brambilla (Etixx-QuickStep) and Domencio Pozzovivo, who had started the day 6th and 11th overall respectively. However they were delayed in a big crash inside the final hour. Both chased hard but were unable to get back on terms by the finish.

Another big name suffering was former race leader Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin), who finally admitted defeat in his battle against saddle sores and withdrew from the race.

Ulissi also won stage four and was delighted to be topping the podium again.
