Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) took a long-awaited first victory of the season at the Giro d’Italia, soloing to the win on stage 10 after going in the day’s breakaway

Peter Sagan wins Stage 10 after a solo attack from the Breakaway

The three-time world champion fought hard to be part of the early break on a stage full of steep climbing, and was left with just Ben Swift (Ineos) for company in the final 20km of the stage.

Sagan was able to drop the British champion on the final climb of the day, which topped out with 11km to go, with the GC contenders breathing down his neck at just 25 seconds behind.

He pushed out that gap on the treacherous final descent which was made all the worse thanks to the rain that fell in the latter half of the stage.

With none of GC contenders’ teams able to take control of the remaining riders in the chase group despite just being just 20 seconds behind in the final 3km, Sagan was able to hold his effort and take his first career victory at the Giro.

João Almeida (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) extended his lead in pink once again after finishing third on the stage to take four bonus seconds ahead of the main GC contenders that finished just 23 seconds behind the stage winner.

Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) was the day’s biggest loser amongst the overall hopefuls, losing around 1-15 on the Almeida group.

Peter Sagan said after his victory "Finally I won with my style, winning and put on a show. We were 2 Movistar and 2 INEOS, I was lucky to have a good leg today and I was able to control all in breakaway."
