Nico Denz's barely believable run of form at the Giro d'Italia continued with a brilliant second victory on stage 14, as Geraint Thomas opted to hand control of the race over to Groupama-FDJ's Bruno Armirail.

German Denz helped a chasing group of five bridge across to a group of three leaders in the final 500m of the 194km stage, before the Bora-hansgrohe rider sprinted for his second win in just three days.
