Italian Dario Cataldo won stage 15 of the Giro d’Italia in Como, Italy, today.
The Astana rider finished the 232km course, which kicked off in Ivrea, in a time of 5:48:15.
Mattia Cattaneo (Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec) followed him home, with Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) rounding out the podium.
“I was not thinking to go in the break today because I had two difficult days. This morning I was just thinking ‘I have to go to the finish line’,” said Cataldo.
“At the beginning the legs were ok, I just tried one time to follow Cattaneo and the legs were going well.
“It was an amazing finale.”
Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) remained in third.
