Siutsou wins, Giro del Trentino 2013, stage two

Kanstantsin Siutsou (Sky) took a solo win atop Vetriolo Terme at the end of Giro del Trentino stage two on Wednesday.

Siutsou, Stefano Pirazzi (Bardiani Valvole) and Pierre Rolland (Europcar) had broken free from the whittled-down lead group at the base of the final climb. Siutsou set a quick pace, and dropped first Rolland and then Pirazzi.

Behind, Astana had set the chase with Wiggins safely tucked within the group. Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), Bradley Wiggins (Sky) and Mauro Santambrogio (Vini Fantini) then split away from the lead group. Santambrogio attacked within the final two kilometres in an attempt to catch Siutsou. 

As the gradient levelled out near the finish, it was obvious that Siutsou was not going to be caught. Santambrogio finished second, with Nibali and Wiggins amicably crossing the line for third and fourth together.

Maxime Bouet (Ag2r), winner of the opening stage, regained overall lead in the race after losing it in Tuesday afternoon's team time trial.

British rider Jonathan McEvoy (NetApp-Endura) crashed during the stage and was taken to hospital for treatment.
