Caleb Ewan rode to victory on stage 11 of the Giro d’Italia in Novi Ligure today.
The Lotto-Soudal rider took his second stage victory after finishing the 221km route, which started in Carpi, in a time of 5:17:26.
Second place went to stage 10 winner Arnaud Demare (Groupama-FDJ), with Pascal Ackermann (Bora-Hansgrohe) third.
Demare finishing ahead of Ackermann meant that he took over the maglia ciclamino jersey as leader of the points classification.
Fourth was Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-QuickStep), while Davide Cimolai (Israel Cycling Academy) completed the top five.
“I think my team’s done a great job all week. I think I was a little more relaxed going into this stage because I already had the one win. When you’re a bit relaxed you save more energy and everything seems to fall into place a little easier,” said Ewan.
Valerio Conti (UAE Team Emirates) kept the pink jersey, with Primoz Roglic (Team Jumbo-Visma) and Nans Peters (AG2R La Mondiale) second and third respectively.
