GIRO D’ITALIA STAGE 7 HIGHLIGHTS
Australia’s Caleb Ewan of the Lotto team won a sprint finish for the Giro d’Italia seventh stage on Friday. Hungary’s Attila Valter of Groupama-FDJ held the leader’s pink jersey after the 112 mile run between Notaresco and Termoli on the Adriatic coast. Ewan claimed his fifth stage success of the Giro, and his second this year after also winning stage five. The 26-year-old finished ahead of Italian Davide Cimolai and Belgian Tim Merlier in a stage run in difficult conditions with strong head winds. Colombian Fernando Gaviria tried to anticipate the sprint in the final mile but Ewan reacted to overtake the UAE-Emirates rider in the final 200 meters.
