Richard Carapaz (Movistar) claimed victory on stage 14 of the Giro d'Italia 2019 and took the pink jersey, leading Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) by just seven seconds in the general classification.

After Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) tested the GC group with a number of attacks, Carapaz launched off the front with 28km remaining, quickly opening up a gap and maintaining it over the summit of the Colle San Carlo and on to the descent into the finish.
