Gaviria claims his 3rd Giro stage win, Dumoulin keeps lead

Gavira celebrates wins Stage 12 Giro 2017

The Quick Step-Floors rider, back on his favourite terrain after a day in the mountains on Wednesday, outsprinted Italian Jakub Mareczko (Wilier Triestine) and Ireland's Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) after a flawless leadout from his team mates.

The Irish rider finished just behind stage victor Fernando Gaviria (Quick Step Floors) with Jakub Mareczko (Wilier-Triestina) taking second place.

Gaviria had already shown his sprinting credentials at the 100th edition of the race, but he confirmed himself as the fastest man in the peloton by winning the 229 kilometre stage 12.

It continues a remarkable Grand Tour debut by the 22-year-old Colombian - the best, in fact, since Bernard Hinault won five stages at the Vuelta in 1978.

Overall, Tom Dumoulin remained 2 minutes, 23 seconds ahead of 2014 victor Nairo Quintana and 2:38 ahead of Bauke Mollema.

Fernando Gaviria of Colombia (Quick-Step Floors) won the stage, while Dutch rider Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) remained more than two minutes clear of his nearest opponent in the general classification (GC).

There was concern for Quick-Step when Maximiliano Richeze was dropped earlier, but he finished fifth as the team were able to set Gaviria up for another stage win. "I tried my best to pursue the attack and win, however towards the end I was exhausted".

"It's been a good day for me".

With three kilometres remaining, Italian veteran Filippo Pozzato (Wilier-Selle Italia) made a half-hearted attempt to end the host nation's barren run - but his attack was quickly swallowed up by the rampaging peloton. Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) 4. Phil Bauhaus (GER/SUN) s.t., 5. Nairo Quintana (Movistar) +2:23 3.

The stage was the longest of the entire Giro, spanning 229km between Forlì and Reggio Emilia, and the with a largely flat profile dominating the second half of the race, it had always been billed as one for the sprinters. Jasper Stuyven (Trek Segafredo) 167 3.

Once again there is not expected to be any significant developments in the battle for the pink jersey.
