Ewan wins Giro stage 8

The rider from Team Lotto-Soudal dominated the bunch sprint.

Caleb Ewan has taken the second Giro stage win of his career. After fantastic work by the Lotto Soudal team, the young Australian sprinter beat Elia Viviani and Pascal Ackermann in a bunch kick. This is his fourth victory of the season, after previous wins in the Tour of Turkey and the UAE Tour. The longest stage of the Giro was scheduled today. The riders had to cover 239 kilometres along the Adriatic Sea between Tortoreto Lido and Pesaro. The course was mostly flat, although there were a few short climbs in the finale.

The break of the day, with Frapporti and Cima, was caught early. Near the end, Ciccone, Bidard and Vervaeke attacked, but the peloton caught them as well. Finally Caleb Ewan, atop on his Ridley fully equipped Campagnolo, was the strongest in the bunch sprint.
