Elia Viviani wins third stage of Giro d’Italia! Get all the details

Elia Viviani giro d'Italia 2018


Elia Viviani has just won stage three of 101st Giro d’Italia earlier today in an impressive sprint as Rohan Dennis kept his leaders’ jersey.


Today’s stage marked the last one that took place in Israel before riders heading to the first resting day (tomorrow) and taking the time to get back in Italy.


After an impressive stage two on Saturday, Elia Viviani has now grabbed another victory at the 229km long route through Negev’s deserts in Israel.


“I won and so don’t want to start a polemic. He moved big time. We made contact but I went through,” he said. He went on the left and so I went on the right but then he moved across the road,” Viviani, 29, said about Bennett.
