Kaden Groves (Alpecin-Deceuninck) won stage five of the Giro d'Italia this afternoon in Salerno.

The Australian sprinter beat Jonathan Milan (Bahrain Victorious) and Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo)  to the line in a finale marred by a series of crashes involving several high profile riders.

Despite being involved in one of the crashes as the finish approached, Andreas Leknessund (DSM) kept hold of the overall lead and will wear the Maglia Rosa once more on stage six tomorrow.
