Nicola Boem (Bardiani-CSF) took the victory on stage 10 of the 2015 Giro d'Italia after an unlikely breakaway managed to hold-off the peloton on a flat stage which looked destined to end in a bunch sprint.

An all Italian break formed after 7km of the route and included Oscar Gatto (Androni-Sidermec),  Alessandro Malaguti (Nippo-Vini Fantini), Matteo Busato (Southeast) and Alan Marangoni (Cannondale-Garmin) alongside Boem.
