Arnaud Démare  takes his fourth victory on stage 11 of the Giro d’Italia

The Maglia Ciclamino wearer Demare was brought to the front by his Groupama-FDJ team-mates and once again there was no one that could match his sprint to the line.

Fernando Gaviria (Team Emirates) could only manage seventh, while Cofidis’ Elia Viviani, the last rider to win four stages in a year, was 10th after being hit from behind by a motorbike with 30km to go.

Deceuninck – Quick-Step’s Álvaro Hodeg took third, Cofidis’ Simone Consonni fourth.

No change in the overall general classification with João Almeida (Deceuninck-Quickstep) in the Pink Jersey.

Stage 12 is an anticipated 204km mountain stage around Cesenatico, the stage follows the same route as the Gran Fondo Nove Colli. Upon reaching the foot of the Apennines, after leaving Cesenatico, the route undulates continuously to clear the nine hillocks of the sportive, five of which will award KOM points. With the exception of the first and of the last 25 km, the remaining 150 km do not even feature a single flat metre to let the bunch catch their breath. The route is an endless succession of climbs and descents, with double-digit gradients at points, often on narrow and worn-out roads.
