The break away eventually took shape after 56 kilometres and was made up of 14 riders: Julien Berard (AG2R La Mondiale), Enrico Barbin (Bardiani CSF), Marco Bandiera (Androni Giocatolli), Jackson Rodriguez (Androni Giocatolli), David Tanner (Belkin), Oscar Gatto (Cannondale), Leonardo Duque (Colombia), Matteo Bono (Lampre-Merida), Jonathan Monsalve (Neri Sottoli), Tosh Van der Sande (Lotto-Belisol), Salvatore Puccio (Team Sky), Eduard Vorganov (Katusha), Pieter Weening (Orica-GreenEdge) and Davide Malacarne (Europcar). The gap grew steadily to a maximum of around 8 minutes.
With 20 kilometres remaining, Pieter Weening attacked, taking his companions by surprise. Malacarne eventually made his way up to the Dutchman. With a gap of 3 and a half minutes over the peloton with one climb remaining, the duo clearly had a chance.
Despite looking exhausted, they made their way up the climb and Weening was a picture of cool in the final kiloemtre, refusing to move to the front with as much as 800 metres remaining. Malacarne launched his sprint with 200 metres to go but Weening easily came around for the win.
Back in the GC gorup, the only action came from Pozzovivo, who attacked and took 3rd on the stage, taking back some time on his rivals.
Evans remains in pink while Orica-Greenedge’s amazing Giro continues, despite a bad crash for former leader and stage winner Matthews.
