It was a battle among the Italians at the Giro d’Italia Thursday, as Matteo Trentin (Etixx-QuickStep) sprinted to victory over Moreno Moser (Cannondale) and Etixx teammate Gianluca Brambilla, with an early breakaway finally making it all the way to the finish at this year’s race.
Race leader Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNL-Jumbo) finished safely in the peloton 13:24 behind and kept hold of the maglia rosa as the stage completed without any changes in the general classification.
A tough Category 2 climb on the final circuit around Pinerolo split up the breakaway with Moser and Brambilla riding over the top together followed by Nikias Arndt (Giant-Alpecin) and Ivan Rovny (Tinkoff) 28 seconds behind.
Sacha Modolo and Trentin joined Rovny and Arndt on the descent with Trentin not helping in the chase due to having a teammate in the lead.
Inside the final kilometer, Trentin attacked the chase group, as Moser led Brambilla with the former maglia rosa refusing to pull. When Moser slowed the pace, Trentin was suddenly upon the leaders as the riders entered the 350-metre finishing straight.
