Hour record holder Victor Campenaerts won his first-ever Grand Tour stage from the breakaway on stage 15 of the Giro d'Italia

Victor Campenaerts scores hat-trick for Qhubeka Assos

The Belgian outsprinted Alpecin-Fenix's Oscar Riesbeek in a two-up sprint, the pair having broken away from their fellow escapees before the final climb of the day, taking a third win for Qhubeka-Assos this Italian Grand Tour.

DSM's Nikias Arndt took third, seven seconds later, leading the remnants of the breakaway home.

The peloton came across the line 17 minutes later, having taken the day off as the GC riders ready themselves for tomorrow's test, with Ineos Grenadiers' maintaining his minute-and-a-half lead over BikeExchange's Simon Yates.

Tomorrow's Queen Stage 16 of the Giro d'Italia is an arduous test in the Dolomites. The race between Sacile and Cortina d’Ampezzo is 212 kilometres long and takes in an elevation gain of 5,700 metres. Riders tackle the Passo Pordoi and reach the highest point of the 2021 Giro. The first climber over the Pordoi earns this year’s Cima Coppi.
