Giro d’Italia 2018: Elia Viviani grabs stage 17 victory from Bennett



Italian rider beat one of the stage’s main men Sam Bennett to victory in an intensive, fast, and fantastic sprint as the riders have now headed to the last, most important week of the tour.


For Quick-Steps Floors rider, yesterday’s victory marked his fourth stage win during this season’s Giro d’Italia and also, made him keep the pink leader’s jersey.



Even though Bennett clearly had the necessary speed and tactic for victory, he unfortunately found himself behind Viviani despite trying hard to surpass him. Before he knew, he ran out of road and had no more chance to fight for first place.


Many believe this win has practically wrapped Viviani’s Giro win with three mountain stages ahead and one final sprint stage on Sunday.
