Bora-hansgrohe's Peter Sagan has taken the win of the tenth stage in the Giro d'Italia after a day in which his team set the rhythm.

The former world champion crossed the finish line just ahead Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates) at the end of a stage in which his teammates set a hard pace, particularly on the only climb of the day, in order to drop the pure sprinters and increase the chances for the Slovenian.

"Today was a very good day for the team," said Sagan. "Big thanks to my teammates for their fantastic effort. We gave our best, everybody worked hard to make it a tough stage. We managed to drop some of the pure sprinters but still, in the finale a few of them were there. When the pace is strong all day, it is easier.

"In the first stages of this Giro, I had the legs every day, but if the first 150km are easy, it is more difficult for me to beat the pure sprinters if the action is limited to the last 30km. I now have the ciclamino jersey as well but the Giro is still long, we are only halfway through. We'll see day by day what we can achieve."
