Gorka Izagirre

Gorka Izagirre emerged strongest from a breakaway group to claim victory on stage eight of the Giro d’Italia as Bob Jungels retained his overall lead.

It was the 29-year-old Spaniard’s first Grand Tour stage win and Movistar’s first at this year’s Giro – still led by Jungels, with Geraint Thomas second.

Thomas’ Team Sky team-mate Mikel Landa’s late attack was caught as time gaps in the top 10 stayed the same.
