Alberto Dainese (Team DSM) took Italy’s first victory of the 2022 Giro d’Italia, sprinting to victory on stage 11 in Reggio Emilia.

The Venetian made his jump from a long way back on the fast finish, coming around Simone Consonni (Cofidis) to snatch what looked like a certain victory from Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates). Consonni ended up third, while maglia ciclamino Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) took fourth.
