Pierre Rolland wins Giro d'Italia stage 17 as Dumoulin holds pink

Pierre Rolland ( Cannondale-Drapac ) claimed a much awaited victory on a thrilling finale of the stage 17 at the Giro d'Italia.

Part of an early break that went from the start, Rolland was later joined by team-mate Michael Woods in a large leading group before making his decisive attack inside the final 10km. The French rider crossed the finish line at Canazei 23 seconds ahead of Rui Costa (UAE Team Emirates) and Gorka Izagirre (Movistar).

Race leader Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) crossed the finish line in a peloton that included all the big favourites the best part of eight minutes in arrears.
