Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step Floors) has won the 13th stage of the 2017 Giro d'Italia. The Colombian rider finished first in a bunch sprint ahead of Sam Bennett and Jasper Stuyven.

The 13th stage of the race took place over 167 kilometers between the cities of Reggio Emilia and Tortona. It was a completely flat day that covered part of the Milan-San Remo route and offered the last opportunity for the sprinters to shine in the Italian Grand Tour.

The day started with an early breakaway of Vincenzo Albanese (Bardiani CSF), Pavel Brutt (Gazprom-Rusvelo), Johann Van Zyl (Dimension Data) and Matej Mohoric (UAE-Team Emirates). This small group got an advantage of more than two minutes over the peloton.

At 21 kilometers to go, the escapees were caught and the compact group faced the last strech of the day's route. Filippo Pozzato (Wilier-Selle) tried to surprise with an attack at 3.5km from the finish but was soon reeled back in by the peloton.

The final sprint was once again won by Colombian Fernando Gaviria, who achieved his fourth victory in the 2017 Giro d'Italia. The Quick-Step Floors rider crossed the finish line just ahead of Sam Bennett (Bora-hansgrohe) and Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo).

The Colombian's teammate Maximiliano Richeze made a move that interrupted Caleb Ewan's sprint and left the Orica-Scott rider out of contention. Roberto Ferrari (UAE-Team Emirates) and Ryan Gibbons (Dimension Data) completed the top five of the day.

The General Classification of the race remains unchanged.
