Diego Ulissi (UAE) outsprinted the field today to win stage 2 of the Giro d’Italia in Agrigento, in a short, steep finale.
Domenico Pozzovio and Matteo Sobero and were both in the action for us and crossed the line in 14th and 15th place for us, due to some great teamwork in the final stretch of racing.
Sobero now sits 6th in the general classification, with Ben O’Connor moving into 15th place.
“The final was really fast uphill and the last four kilometres uphill, the speed was really high. I kept the position in the last kilometre with Pozzovivo. It was impossible to sprint, so I just kept Pozzovivo in the first group. We’ll see in the next few days.”
