Giro d’Italia stage 19: Primoz Roglic gains seconds in mountaintop maglia rosa battle

Santiago Buitrago (Bahrain Victorious) claimed a breakaway victory on stage 19 of the Giro d’Italia, as Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) snatched three seconds back from race leader Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) at Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

Buitrago was part of a 15-man breakaway that formed after a breathless start to a high-altitude Dolomite affair that was billed as the queen stage but was subdued from a pink jersey perspective until the steep final ramps of the finishing climb.
