Benat Intxausti leads escape, Giro d'Italia 2013, stage 16

Basque rider Benat Intxausti gave the Movistar team its third stage win of the 2013 Giro d'Italia and moved himself into the top 10 on general classification after winning a three-up sprint in Ivrea on stage 16.

"I want to dedicate this victory to Xavier Tondo and my gran, this is the first time I've been able to put my arms in the air with a win, so when I crossed the line it was for them. We've got a bit of a free role here in the race, but my aim is to finish in the top 10," said the 27 year old later.
