INEOS Grenadiers (Italy) - Press Release: Giro d'Italia - Stage 9 » Castel di Sangro › Campo Felice (Rocca di Cambio), 158km.

Egan Bernal launched an emphatic late attack to win stage nine and move into the overall lead of the Giro d’Italia.

The Colombian burst clear of the GC favourites on the gravel roads of Campo Felice, winning solo by seven seconds, and elevating himself into the maglia rosa.

Bernal’s first stage win at a Grand Tour couldn’t have come in more dramatic fashion, with the break caught inside the final kilometre on the steep, traction-limited slopes.
