Irelands Bennett Wins Giro Stage 12 With Gutsy Sprint


– Irishman Sam Bennett made a perfectly timed break to win the 12th stage of the Giro, a 213-kilometre ride from Osimo that ends in a sprint finish on the Imola racing circuit, amid a heavy downpour on Thursday.

The 27-year-old finished ahead of Dutch rider Danny van Poppel (LottoNL-Jumbo) and Italian Niccolo Bonifazio (Bahrain-Merida) to claim his second stage win of the 2018 race.

Englishman Simon Yates kept hold of the overall lead, staying 47 seconds ahead of defending champion Tom Dumoulin.
