Team Sky's Elia Viviani won the opening road stage of the Giro d'Italia, coming through in the final 50 metres to beat LottoNL-Jumbo's Moreno Hofland by half a wheel, with Lotto-Soudal's André Greipel third. It was Viviani's first win in a Grand Tour.

Michael Matthews took the race leader's maglia rosa from his Orica-GreenEdge teammate Simon Gerrans.
