Fernando Gaviria continued his sensational form at the Giro d'Italia on Friday, winning his second stage in succession and fourth in all as Tom Dumoulin comfortably retained his healthy general classification lead.

Gaviria wins on sprint

A flat 13th-stage route from Reggio Emilia to Tortona was always likely to conclude with a bunch sprint and Gaviria again proved the class of the field.

The 22-year-old Quick-Step Floors rider beat Bora-Hansgrohe's Sam Bennett into second place, with Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) taking third.

Damiano Cunego has company

Gaviria is only the second man this century to claim four stage wins at a Giro before his 23rd birthday, following in the footsteps of Damiano Cunego in 2004.

Meanwhile, British cyclist Geraint Thomas has been forced to withdraw from the event due to a knee injury sustained on Sunday. The injury happened as a result of a stray police motorbike.
