Biniam Girmay creates history with Giro d’Italia stage ten victory

Biniam Girmay (Intermarché–Wanty–Gobert Matériaux) created history on stage ten of the Giro d’Italia, by becoming the first Eritrean and first black African rider to win a Grand Tour stage.

Coming into the final 500m, Girmay hit the front as he launched off of teammate Domenico Pozzovivo’s rear wheel. The Eritrean superbly managed to fend off Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) in the closing stages with his superior strength, as both riders absolutely pounded the pedals metres from the line.
