Roger Kluge defies sprinters in stage 17 of Giro d’Italia

Free Pass

Only two days after the news that his IAM team would disband at the end of the season, Roger Kluge gave his squad a much-needed win in stage 17 of the Giro d’Italia.

The sprint to Cassano d’Adda was disorganized, as a late breakaway was caught in the final kilometers of the 196km race. Kluge took advantage and launched a bold solo attack to catch Filippo Pozzato in the last 250 meters to win. LottoNL – Jumbo’s Steven Kruijswijk kept the overall lead on a day that saw no changes in GC standings.
