Dutchman Koen Bouwman secured the first Grand Tour stage win of his career with an impressive uphill sprint on stage seven of the the Giro d’Italia.
The 28-year-old was part of a four-rider breakaway during the closing stages of the 196km mountainous test from from Diamante to Potenza.
Dutch rider Bauke Mollema was second, with Italy’s Davide Formolo in third.
Bouwman’s Jumbo-Visma team-mate Tom Dumoulin finished fourth after a mechanical problem.
“It’s unbelievable, like my first victory in the Dauphine, I can’t believe it,” said Bouwman. “I’m so happy.
“It was such a hard day, but I felt quite good. One time on the climb I had troubles, but I came back and I was confident for the sprint.”
