Photo gallery: 2017 Giro d’Italia, stages 5 to 9

by Matt de Neef


Bunch sprints, successful breakaways, crashes, and a general classification reshuffle; stages 5-9 of this year’s Giro d’Italia produced it all.

Fernando Gaviria (QuickStep Floors) became the first man to win two stages of the 2017 Giro d’Italia while his teammate Bob Jungels battled to hold onto pink for as long as he could. Silvan Dillier (BMC) and Gorka Izagirre (Movistar) made the most of successful breakaways in nail-biting finales whilst Nairo Quintana asserted his dominance on the first GC showdown on the Blockhaus climb.

The race is far from over and there is still plenty to look forward to. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the following gallery showcasing all the joy, pain and disappointment of stages 5-9 of the 100th Giro d’Italia.
