Early in the race Marco Bandiera, Iljo Keisse and Giacomo Berlato jump off the front of the bunch and race to a maximum gain of 3 minutes. Halfway the race the peloton opens the chase and with 25 km’s left they are reeled in. A little later Hansen, Gretsch and Atapuma leave the pack. Hansen decides to go solo, but with 10 km’s to go he is brought back.
At 5 km’s Tom-Jelte Slagter jumps off the front of the pack with Philippe Gilbert chasing, but in the last kilometre they are caught by the pack. The bunch sprint is snatched by Sacha Modolo, his second win in 2015 Giro.
Nizzolo is second and is the new leader in the point classification.
