Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) went into the second rest day at this year’s Giro d’Italia firmly in control after distancing all of his rivals of the final climb on stage 16 to win alone on another epic day of racing that was dominated by rain and freezing temperatures.

The Colombian attacked with just over 21km to go on the Passo Giau to win alone after a long descent and put significant time into every one of his rivals and extend his lead in the race.
