Gavira celebrates wins Stage 12 Giro 2017

The 22-year-old extended his lead in the points classification with a rapid late burst on stage 12, ensuring Jakub Mareczko and Sam Bennett had to settle for second and third respectively.

The Irish rider finished just behind stage victor Fernando Gaviria (Quick Step Floors) with Jakub Mareczko (Wilier-Triestina) taking second place.

Meanwhile, overnight Andrew Talansky ended Cannondale-Drapac's two-year wait for a WorldTour win at the Tour of California after the American rider prevailed in a duel with overall leader Rafal Majka to claim the fifth stage.

Dumoulin negotiated a comfortable stage that included just two categorised ascents and still holds a lead of two minutes and 23 seconds over Quintana (Movistar) after crossing the line six seconds after Gaviria‏.

But Gaviria was brought to the front at the ideal time to edge out his rivals to claim his third stage victory of the Giro, which saw the Colombian increase his already substantial lead in the points classification.

Although German sprint giant Andre Greipel has won only one sprint on the 100th edition so far, Gaviria said: "The best sprinter in this Giro is Andre Greipel".

Thomas was nursing knee and shoulder injuries following last Sunday's crash, caused by a stationary police motorbike, and opted not to continue despite a second-placed finish behind Dumoulin in Tuesday's individual time-trial.

Mirco Maestri had been hoping for a first stage win, in his hometown, and he was part of the early break along with Sergey Firsanov and Marco Marcato.

With three kilometres remaining, Italian veteran Filippo Pozzato (Wilier-Selle Italia) made a half-hearted attempt to end the host nation's barren run - but his attack was quickly swallowed up by the rampaging peloton. Thibaut Pinot (FRA/FDJ) 2:40, 5.

The 13th stage on Friday is another one for the sprinters as it is a completely flat 167-kilometer (104-mile) route from Reggio Emilia to Tortona. Jasper Stuyven (BEL/TRE) s.t., 10.
