Andrea Vendrame gave his Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale team its second victory in this year’s Giro d’Italia, after the Italian rider attacked from out of the breakaway group to triumph atop the Cima Sappada, while Pelayo Sanchez (Movistar) was second on the stage ahead of Georg Steinhauser (EF Education-EasyPost).

Meanwhile, race leader Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) suffered a puncture on the stage, but his lead of 7:42 went otherwise unchallenged despite the breakaway gaining over 16 minutes.

Elsewhere, third-placed Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) crashed with 6 kilometers to go after touching wheels with Antonio Tiberi (Bahrain Victorious). Fortunately, the Welsh rider was able to quickly remount on a new bike, while Pogačar et al eased up on the pace to let him rejoin the group.
