Van Garderen ends long wait for maiden stage win
Previously without a Grand Tour stage victory, Tejay van Garderen finally ended that wait in the Giro d'Italia on Thursday.Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor
Tejay van Garderen pipped Mikel Landa in a thrilling finish to stage 18 of the Giro d'Italia to break his Grand Tour duck.
Known as 'The Zen Warrior', Van Garderen's patience had been tested by a long wait for a stage success on any of the three Grand Tours.
But that drought was ended as the American brought home the win for BMC Racing at the end of a gruelling 137-kilometre route between Moena and Ortisei/St. Ulrich that featured five categorised climbs.
He and Landa broke away at the front to battle it out, and it looked as though it would be the Team Sky man to emerge victorious, only for Van Garderen to produce one final push and just edge out his rival.
