Mads Pedersen timed his sprint to perfection to take victory on stage six of the Giro d'Italia in Napoli on Thursday, as the last two riders from the day's break were caught with 200m to go.

The Trek-Segafredo rider has now won stages at all three Grand Tours, with his Giro win added to the stage he won at the Tour de France last July, and the three stages he won at the Vuelta a España in 2023.
