May 17, 2019 Off By readly




Spain’s Pello Bilbao claimed the seventh stage of the Giro d’Italia on Friday, an undulating 185km ride from Vasto to L’Aquila.

The Astana rider attacked from a small group of breakaway riders 1.5km from the finish in the final punchy climb, holding off France’s Tony Gallopin and the Italian Davide Formolo, who were second and third respectively, five seconds behind.

Italy’s Valerio Conti finished in the main pack, 1m7s off the pace, to retain the overall leader’s pink jersey.

The overall favourites had an uneventful day in the peloton.
