Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) takes his third win of the Giro d’Italia 2020 ahead of Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb).
The pelton was battered by crosswind throughout the day but it all came back together in the finally 50 kilometres and it was the sprinters that had their fun.
João Almeida (Deceuninck – Quick-Step) kept the pink jersey in what ended up being an almost arm chair rider thank to his team controlling the day and instigating the echelons early on.
