Another sprint stage another win for Fernando Gaviria Quick-Step Floors , who took his third win of the race in what is turning into a dream debut Grand Tour. Stage 12 looked all set for Sam Bennett to take his first Grand Tour stage win after having finished in third place on three occasions so far in this Giro. With Marezko finishing second behind Gaviria today, this is now the longest that the Italians have ever had to wait for a stage win in their home Grand Tour. Largely flat, km in length, and inevitably destined to finish in a bunch sprint, today was a day where you had to spare a though for the poor riders told to get into the break in the pre-stage team meeting. After simmering under the surface for the last week, the mountains classification is poised nicely heading into the Alps at the end of the week. The Spaniard took plenty of points on his way to the stage win on Wednesday to draw level, then sprang out of the peloton ahead of Polanc to take four points on the second category climb at the start of the stage to move into blue.
Ewan touched wheels with a rival in the fast run in to Reggio Emilia, breaking a spoke and ending his hopes for a second stage win. Yates meanwhile, was on the good side of a split in the peloton to gain six seconds on his GC rivals as Fernando Gaviria took out stage number three. It was a piece of good luck of Yates who was involved in the 'police moto' accident on stage 9 that contributed to him slipping from third to 16th overall. The boys had contributed to controlling the break all day and put in some fantastic work in the closing kilometres in support of the sprint," sport director Matt White said of the stage. When the mechanics received the bike after the race, the wheel wouldn't spin a full rotation. Unfortunately, it's impossible to compete in the sprint with that type of issue. Ewan's rival Gaviria is enjoying a dream debut on his Giro debut while Ewan has suffered several bouts of bad luck, including pulling a foot from his pedal when in a winning position.
At the finish, the bunch was all back together and Fernando Gaviria, the year-old Colombian sprinter, won his third stage of the race.

A stage for sprinters. The first testing part clears the Colla di Casaglia, enters the A1 Appennine stretch in Barberino del Mugello, reaches the Valico Appenninico and leaves it in Rioveggio. The course then runs for over km downhill and on a flat section heading to Reggio Emilia along its boulevards where a field sprint is expected. Then, Sergey Firsanov Rusvelo returned to the peloton. The bunch snuffed out his solo attack with seven kilometers to go. He was caught just before the final kilometer with Bora-Hansgrohe driving the sprint. With the victory, Gaviria extended his lead in the points classification.
