Stage 12 of the Giro d'Italia was the longest of the race at 229 kilometres and, with the last half of it flat, the sprinters' had another opportunity - probably their penultimate one - to grab a victory. 

After a three-man breakaway spent the day out front, Bora-Hansgrohe dominated the final five kilometres, but they couldn't stop Fernando Gaviria from bagging his third win in what is his first-ever Grand Tour. 

Watch how the Colombian pulled it off in the highlights video above.
