May 9/17 11:33 am - Giro d'Italia: Stage 4

Polanc and Jungels repeat their winning feats

The Slovenian rider wins on Etna in similar fashion to his solo victory on Abetone in 2015.
The Luxembourger wears the Maglia Rosa just like last year.

Two years after he won climbing the Abetone, Slovenia’s Jan Polanc claimed the first uphill finish of the 100th Giro d’Italia as he soloed to victory on Mount Etna, surviving from a long breakaway despite the strong wind blowing on Sicily’s famous volcano. Luxembourg’s Bob Jungels – who wore the Maglia Rosa for three days last year – moved into the lead ahead of British riders Geraint Thomas and Adam Yates.
