Gavira gets greedy with fourth stage win
Tortona, 19 May 2017 – The Colombian rider Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step Floors) won the 167km Reggio Emilia to Tortona 13th stage of the 100th Giro d'Italia. It is his fourth victory in this year's Giro. Sam Bennett (Bora - Hansgrohe) and Jasper Stuyven (Trek - Segafredo) finished second and third.
Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) retains the race General Classification leader, wearing the Maglia Rosa.
Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Fernando Gaviria said: “It's been a different sprint today and a difficult sprint indeed but thanks to my team I managed to go back up and win one more stage. I'm now the Colombian with most stage victories at the Giro but it doesn't mean much. To me it means that I came to the Giro well prepared.”
The race leader Tom Dumoulin said: “The wind made me nervous sometimes. For most of the day it was side wind. In the finale it was more side head wind. But I was very well protected by the team so it was another good day for us. I think Oropa is a climb that suits me well so I hope to be in the Maglia Rosa again on Sunday.”
