Jumping the Others G17-3
Daniel Teklehaimanot (Dimension Data) who gained fame by being the first African to ever wear a leader's jersey in the Tour de France, set of from the six man break in hopes of adding a King of the Mouintains jersey from the Giro to his collection. He went early on the Trinita d'Agultu, but was caught before he reached the summit of the second climb of the day. He did gain some points but he was bested on both climbs by Cesare Benedetti (Bora-Hansgrohe). So it looks like Teklehaimanot will have to be satisfied with another day in the Eritrean National Champion's jersey.
