Alberto Dainese takes a very tight sprint in the Giro decided by ‘photo finish’


The Italian cyclist Alberto Dainese (Team DSM) won this Wednesday the seventeenth stage of the Giro d’Italia, disputed between Pergine Valsugana and Caorle over 195 kilometers, in a ‘photo finish’ finale after a disputed and precious sprint, beating his compatriot Jonathan Milan (Bahrain-Victorious) and Australian Michael Matthews (Jayco Alula).

In a very calm day until the finish, the protagonist was the Belgian Senne Leysen (Alpecin Fenix), who challenged the peloton before being caught two kilometers before the finish line. In the general, there are no changes, and the Welshman Geraint Thomas (INEOS Grenadiers) maintains the ‘pink jersey’ with an 18-second lead over Joao Almeida (UAE) and 29 over Primoz Roglic (Jumbo Visma).
