Campenaerts wins stage 15

Already the eighth time the breakaway managed to hold off the peloton at this year’s Giro d’Italia and it was the hour-record holder Victor Campenaerts (Qhubeka Assos) who proved to be the strongest in the end. He outsprinted Oscar Riesbeek (Alpecin-Fenix) after the pair broke away from the rest of the escapees before the last climb. The peloton came across the line 17 minutes later. All the GC contenders allowed themselves a break before today’s big test ending in Cortina d’Ampezzo.
