Koen Bouwman (Jumbo-Visma) claimed the first Grand Tour stage victory of his career on stage 7 of the Giro d’Italia, winning from the breakaway on a brutal and breathless stage to Potenza.

It took some 70km for the breakaway to form on a rugged parcours that totalled 4500 metres of elevation gain, but it went all the way and Bouwman’s celebrations were shadowed in the background by his teammate Tom Dumoulin.
