Santiago Buitrago Victorious on Stage 17 of Giro d’Italia

Team Bahrain Victorious (Italy) - Press Release: After his courageous effort on stage 15, Santiago Buitrago went in the breakaway again and this time tasted his first Grand Tour victory over the Monterovere, crossing the line in Lavarone solo.

Buitrago joined an early breakaway of about 20 riders over Passo del Tonale. However, on the descent down, Buitrago was involved in a crash but fortunately had a quick change of bike and was able to stay with the group.

Meanwhile, in the battle for GC, Mikel Landa moved up to third overall. With the support of his teammates, Landa was able to distance Almeida. Landa now sits just 1:05 behind the Maglia Rosa: it was another hard mountain stage. We took control on the second last climb and pushed the pace to start making the stage harder.
