The rider from the team Lampre-Merida takes an impressive victory

First stage in Italy and first success from an Italian cyclist in this Giro d’Italia, thanks to the victory of Diego Ulissi in the 4th stage, 200 km from Catanzaro to Praia a Mare.

Lampre-Merida cyclist realized an impressive attack which allowed him to reach as solo the final straight in Praia a Mare, crossing the finish line with 5” on Dumoulin (back in pink) and Kruijswijk, 6” on the top contenders for the general classification.

When the first and main breakaway of the stage was neutralized, Ulissi built up his victory attacking from the bunch at 30 km to the arrival, bridging the gap from the head group of 12 riders in which the blue-fucshia-green Conti was pedaling.
Conti was great in leading this group of attackers and he set the conditions for approaching the final hill, whose summit was at 8700 meters to the arrival, with a fairly good advantage of the peloton.

Ulissi, atop on his Merida bike equipped with Fulcrum Speed 40T wheels,  made an amazing progression and no opponents could resist, so Lampre-Merida’s rider could manage 20” of advantage which gave him the victory and the third place in the general classification at 20” to Dumoulin.
