Pascal Ackermann declared that he was "finally back" after winning a dramatic Giro d'Italia stage 11 in a photo finish.

The UAE Team Emirates rider broke his coccyx in a crash in 2022, but returned to wining ways at the Italian Grand Tour on Wednesday. The German sprinted to victory narrowly in Tortona, however, as Jonathan Milan (Bahrain-Victorious) almost pipped him to the line in a late surge.
