Giro d'Italia 2022 stage 11 highlights - Video

Alberto Dainese (Team DSM) won on stage 11 bringing Italy its first stage win at the 2022 Giro d'Italia. The Italian beat runner-up Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates) and third placed Simone Consonni (Cofidis) in a bunch sprint in Reggio Emilia.

Stage 11 was always meant for the sprinters with a flat 204km between Santarcangelo di Romagna and Reggio Emilia. 

An early breakaway included Filippo Tagliani (Drone Hopper-Androni Giocattoli) and Luca Rastelli (Bardiani-CSF-Faizanè) were caught inside 90km to go, and Dries De Bondt (Alpecin-Fenix) made a solo counter attack to go solo in the last 60km, but he too was caught in the last 1.5km

The sprinters may have had their day but there were some valuable opportunities for the GC riders, too. Although Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo) maintained his lead in the overall classification, Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) moved up to second at 12 second back after claiming mid-stage time bonuses. He bumped João Almeida (UAE Team Emirates) down to third place.
