Arnaud Démare of Groupama-FDJ produced an impressive long-range sprint to win Giro d’Italia Stage 10, beating Italian champion Elia Viviani (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) into second place in Modena.
After a flat day which was mostly a relaxed affair for the peloton, a crash inside the final kilometre took out Maglia Ciclamino Pascal Ackermann (BORA-hansgrohe), who has already won two stages at this race.
Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) and Viviani might have expected to duel for the win between them after that - but it was Frenchman Démare who proved the strongest.
Sho Hatsuyama (Nippo-Vini Fantini Faizané) and Luca Covili (Bardiani-CSF) attacked right at the start, and were allowed to escape by the peloton, with the two-man break spending most of the day in front.
Valerio Conti (UAE Team Emirates) stays in the overall race lead and will wear the Maglia Rosa on Stage 11 on Wednesday, a 221km flat stage from Carpi to Novi Ligure.
