The Giro d’Italia peloton faced a long 229km stage between Be’er Sheva and Eilat on Sunday, in the final stage of the race taking place in Israel.

The race held it’s Big Start on Friday with a 9.7km individual time trial in Jerusalem, before a sprint stage on day two to Tel Aviv.

The third stage also looked likely to culminate in a sprint, and stage two’s victory Elia Viviani (Quick-Step) would fancy his chances of taking a second stage win of the race and a third career victory at the Giro d’Italia.

He’d have a tough take ahead of him though, with the likes of Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe), Jakub Mareczko (Wilier Triestina) and Sacha Modolo (EF Education First-Drapac) all looking to make up for missing out to the Italian on stage two.

Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) entered the stage with the lead in the general classification, holding one second over defending Giro champion Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb). The general classification was unlikely to change on the predominantly flat route however, with the GC contenders eyeing the upcoming stage on return to Italy.

The riders head to the island of Sicily on Monday’s rest day, with a 198km route from Catania to Caltagirone welcoming them when the race resumes on Tuesday with stage four.

The 2018 Giro d’Italia concludes on Sunday, May 27, in Rome after three weeks of racing.
