Yates wins Giro d'Italia stage 14 as Carapaz takes maglia rosa

Yates wins Giro d'Italia stage 14 as Carapaz takes maglia rosa Giro d'Italia - Stage 14 - Santena to Torino, Italy - May 21, 2022 Team BikeExchange - Jayco's Simon Yates celebrates on the podium after winning stage 14

Simon Yates went solo in the finale to win the 14th stage of the Giro d'Italia as Richard Carapaz took over as overall race leader on Saturday.

Briton Yates, whose title ambitions had already been dashed, attacked from a group of four with four kilometres left to prevail in Turin after a 147-kilometre ride from Santena. Ecuador's Carapaz, who was third on the day behind Australia's Jai Hindley, snatched the leader's maglia rosa jersey from Juanpe Lopez after the Spaniard cracked on the penultimate ascent of the day. Former champion Vincenzo Nibali was fourth, 15 seconds down on Yates and beaten in the sprint by Hindley and Carapaz. Ineos-Grenadiers rider Carapaz, who won the 2019 Giro when riding for Movistar, attacked on the Superga climb, a 5-km ascent at 8.6%, and Lopez lost touch to finish four minutes and 25 seconds off the pace. Carapaz was however caught by Hindley, Nibali and Yates on the ascent to the Colle della Maddalena and he lacked a bit of juice for the final sprint. Overall, he now leads Hindley, whose Bora-Hansgrohe team blew up the race with 80km to go, by seven seconds, and Portugal's Joao Almeida, who took sixth place 39 seconds behind Yates, by 30 seconds. Tom Dumoulin, the 2017 winner, abandoned early in the stage as he was suffering from back problems. Sunday's 15th stage is a brutal 177-km mountain trek from Rivarolo Cavanese to Cogne in the Aosta valley.
