Giro d´Italia leader Simon Yates wins stage 11

Giro d´Italia leader Simon Yates wins stage 11

On a bittersweet - but predominantly bitter - day for Mitchelton-Scott in Le Marche, race leader Simon Yates picked up a few intermediate sprint bonus seconds to strengthen his grip on the pink jersey as team-mate Chaves cracked on the first of three categorised climbs to finish more than 25 minutes down on stage victor Mohoric.

Bennett headed into the day 1m 36s behind stage victor and pink jersey holder Simon Yates, but he now sits 2m 9s behind the Brit after his progress was stalled after he broke his chain on the final climb and had to change his bike. Tom was chasing me all the way to the line, " Yates said.

On Monday's rest day, Pinot had already warned of the dangers of the Giro's traversal of Umbria and the Marche, and suggested that he was already expecting to lose ground to more explosive riders like Yates.

Chaves' woes are a major blow to the overall hopes of his Mitchelton-Scott team.

Yates made his move in the final 1.5 kilometres to finish two seconds ahead of Dumoulin, while Italy's Davide Formolo finished third.

"I'm trying to get time".

The Mitchelton-Scott rider took his second stage win, but fellow Brit Chris Froome continues to struggle.

Yates now leads by 41sec from Dumoulin with Pinot third at 46sec. Both made it back to the main pack.

After the announcement of its quarterly result, the share of the state-owned lender was also hit by a significant margin. For the March quarter, the bank saw its total provisions more than triple from a year earlier to 203.53 billion rupees.

"That was defiantly a lot harder than I expected", Bennett said after the race.

Before the sprint, Mohoric glanced over his shoulder to check on Denz but the German never passed him and Mohoric won in slightly more than six hours. "I'm motivated, the team's motivated and we're going to do as much as we can". "That's why I tried to attack him before", an elated Mohoric said after his gruelling ride. "I felt good all day and I'm really pleased that I took advantage of the opportunity".

The route passed by the site of the Rigopiano avalanche, which killed 29 hotel guests and staff past year.

"It's not a two-way battle, because there are four to five guys who are still close".

Yates attacked with about 1.5 kilometers remaining of the 156-kilometer leg from Assisi to Osimo and held off Dumoulin on the steep climb to the finish to claim his second victory of the race.

"It's good to get this racing in the legs".

The race ends in Rome on May 27.
