The rider from Team Nippo Vini Fantini Faizanè conquested a fantastic victory.
Damiano Cima is the winner of the stage n.18 of the Giro d’Italia n.102. A victory obtained with extreme lucidity even after 172km of today’s breakaway and after almost 1000 km of riding in front of the bunch in Giro d’Italia. A victory achieved with a sprint in the sprint, with the advancing group reabsorbing just two meters before the line the two riders of the breakway except for Damiano Cima who today wrote a page of important history for him and for his team. The embrace with Marco Canola after the finish line, the tears of Juan Josè Lobato, the fatigue accumulated by all the teammates in the 18 stages of this Giro d’Italia culminate in the best result of this team’s history, a victory in a World Tour stage, a victory in the most important race of the season: the Giro d’Italia.
