Esteban Chaves

Coming out victorious was Esteban Chaves, though he was gifted the stage his ridiculously fast-finishing teammate Simon Yates, who moves into the leader's pink jersey while announcing himself as a serious contender for the overall title.

"I don't know, I hope so but there are a lot of stages to go".

Yates now leads with an overall time of 22:46:3.0, giving him a 16-second advantage over nearest challenger and reigning champion Tom Dumoulin of Team Sunweb.

"It wasn't really the plan for Esteban to go in the breakaway, but it was very insane in the start, a lot of guys went up the road and he just happened to be there".

Thibaut Pinot finished 26 seconds after the Mitchelton-Scott duo in third place and sits fifth in the GC standings.

Four-time Tour de France victor Froome is 1 minute, 10 seconds behind, in eighth place.

Chaves had spent much of the day with a leading pack and showed great staying power to see it through. "Hopefully that can help me in the next few stages", Yates explained.

Trump's team dismisses that risk: Tehran doesn't have the economic strength to confront the United States, Israel and the Saudis". Since the Iran nuclear deal went into effect, its exports have risen to about 2.5 million bpd, from less than 1 million bpd.

"I said to him as soon as I caught him that he could take the stage because if I had enough time I would take the jersey", Yates said.

"The start was insane". I felt good so I took my chance to ride across. "I could sit in the wheels and save some energy", Yates continued. "I looked across the road and everyone was looking at each other".

BC-CYC-Giro d'Italia, 133 Yates moves into overall lead of Giro, Chaves wins stage 6Eds: APNewsNow.

The only force he couldn't match was the superb showing from the Mitchelton-Scott team, who achieved a rare 1-2 finish atop the mountainous finish.

It is a second stage win in the Giro for Chaves (after his success in 2016) - a remarkable achievement for the 28-year-old who was told he might never cycle again after a serious crash in 2013.

On the 15km final climb on Mount Etna, Bennett was stronger than a huge array of pre-race favourites, shining brighter than the likes of Chris Froome, Tom Dumoulin, Fabio Aru and Miguel Angel Lopez.
