• Irish rider bursts clear on home straight to win stage 12
• Simon Yates retains advantage as leader in pink jersey
Sam Bennett sped away from the chasing pack to win stage 12 of the Giro d’Italia in a sprint finish on the famous motor racing track at Imola as Simon Yates kept hold of the pink jersey.
Bennett recorded his second win of this year’s race after making his move down the home straight, and held off Danny van Poppel (LottoNL-Jumbo), with Niccolò Bonifazio (Bahrain-Merida) in third. The Bora-Hansgrohe rider had ended Ireland’s 31-year wait for a Giro stage win in the seventh stage last Friday.
