The rider from Team Lotto-Soudal conquests the second stage victory at the Giro.
Caleb Ewan took the win in the eleventh stage of the Giro. He sprinted everyone off the wheel after great work by the Lotto Soudal train. The Australian beat Arnaud Démare and Pascal Ackermann in a bunch kick to take his second stage victory in five days. Like yesterday, it was an entirely flat course through the Po Valley. The riders covered 221 kilometres between Carpi and Novi Ligure. Three escapees were part of the breakaway today: Cima, Maestri and Frapporti. They were caught by the bunch with 25 kilometres left to the finish. The various lead-out trains rode next to each other leading the pack, preparing what would probably be the last chance on a bunch sprint in this Giro. The final straight was slightly uphill and there was headwind. Ewan came off Ackermann’s wheel and the Lotto Soudal rider sprinted to his second stage victory atop on his Ridley fully equipped Campagnolo.
