Nicola Boem (Bardiani-CSF) took a well-deserved win after out sprinting his breakaway companions into Forlì on stage 10 of the Giro d’Italia. The Italian proved the freshest of a five-man break in the closing kilometres of a pulsating stage that saw the sprinters’ teams miss out, and Richie Porte (Team Sky) lose time to his key rivals after a late puncture.
The Team Sky leader eventually came over the line 1:05 minutes down on Boem but lost a crucial 47 seconds to Contador and Aru. He now sits in fourth overall, 1:09 minutes down on Contador.
