Mauro Santambrogio wins, with Vincenzo Nibali in second, Giro d'Italia 2013, stage 14

Mauro Santambrogio (Vini Fantini) emerged from the mist to win Saturday's weather-affected stage 14 of the Giro d'Italia, ahead of Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) who extends his lead in the general classification.

The race leader put over 30 seconds into his main rival Cadel Evans (BMC Racing), although he opted not to contest the sprint for the finish-line bonus time, allowing his compatriot Santambrogio to take Vini Fantini-Selle Italia's first stage win of this year's race.
