Roger Kluge wins stage 17

Weather: Molveno: Light clouds. Wind: NW 8-11km/h. 13-14°C

Cassano d’Adda (Finish): Light clouds. Wind: W 9-12km/h. 24-26°C

The Route: The first half of the stage is wavy, while the second half is perfectly flat. The route rolls along moderate undulations all the way up to km 120 (Brescia), where the road eventually levels out. Beware of a few tunnels in the first part. In the flat sector, roads are relatively wide and straight, with just a few curvier stretches.

Roundabouts, speed bumps and traffic dividers are the main obstacles typically found in urban areas. The final 5 km are perfectly flat, with two mild bends and one (last) turn 600 m before the finish, on 7-m wide asphalt road. Roundabouts, speed bumps and traffic islands are the main obstacles, as found throughout the stage course.

The Race: 162 riders started at 12:34 PM. Did not start: dossard nr 146, Luka Mezgec (Orica-GreenEdge).

German rider Roger Kluge (IAM Cycling) won Stage 17. Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek – Segafredo) finished second, with Nikias Arndt (Team Giant – Alpecin) third.

Steven Kruijswijk (Team Lotto NL – Jumbo) remains the race leader overall and keeps the Maglia Rosa.

Seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner said: “I’ve been a pro for six years and this is the big victory I have been looking for. It’s a dream. It wasn’t planned at all. I was working for Heinrich Haussler, closing the gap for him but I saw a possibility to get away. The finishing line was very near. It’s a strange feeling. Yesterday we were very disappointed to hear that our team is going to stop at the end of the year but we decided to stick together and it’s wonderful to come up with a victory to make it up for our disappointment”.

The Maglia Rosa said: “It’s been a long stage but quite a nice day. I’ve enjoyed riding with the Maglia Rosa as much as I could because I knew this was my last easy day race before some hard stages coming up, starting tomorrow. It’s a stage with a hard and spectacular finale after a tricky downhill. I’m ready”.

Report from race leader Steven Kruisjwijk's LottoNL-Jumbo team:

LottoNL-Jumbo’s Steven Kruijswijk maintained his lead in today’s Giro d’Italia stage 17 to Cassano d’Adda. Roger Kluge (IAM Cycling) won the stage and Kruijswijk placed 30 th , still with three minutes on Esteban Chaves (Orica - GreenEDGE).

Unlike yesterday, a breakaway went immediately. Daniel Oss (BMC), Eugert Zhupa (Wilier Triestina - Southeast) and Pavel Brutt (Tinkoff) built a lead of more than five minutes. Trek - Segafredo and Lampre – Merida controlled the peloton. Right behind, the men of LottoNL-Jumbo kept the pink jersey at front.

After the second intermediate sprint, three men crossed over to the leaders. Not much later, the peloton also joined and bunch sprint built towards the line. Roger Kluge (IAM Cycling), however, shot free with a late attack.

"It was not an easy ride", said Sports Director Addy Engels. "There were good riders in front that were not dangerous for us. The sprinters teams had to ride hard in the pursuit. We rode well just behind, but the twists and turns made it difficult."

Kruijswijk finished with the other favourites and the overall remained the same, three minutes on Chaves and 3-32 on Alejandro Valverde (Movistar).

"This was probably the last easy day. I enjoyed it and tried to save as much energy as possible,” Kruijswijk said.

He must ride the longest stage of the Giro tomorrow with the Pramartino climb before Pinerolo. "It is a long day with a tough final, I have to be up there and make sure I climb it well and don’t lose time."

"We have to pay attention tomorrow,” Sport Director Addy Engels said of the 240-kilometre stage. “The distance and especially that climb in the end, makes it a dangerous stage. After 220 kilometres, 4.6 kilometres uphill, averaging 10.5%, will hurt.”
