Dillier wins stage 6 of the Giro, Canada's Woods fifth

Australian rider Caleb Ewan won the seventh stage of the Giro d'Italia in a sprint finish while Bob Jungels held on to the pink jersey on Friday.

Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) sprinted to third after a strong lead-out by stage 1 victor Lukas Pöstlberger.

Luxembourg's Bob Jungels of Quick-Step retained the overall lead, with Team Sky's Geraint Thomas 6sec behind.

Dillier kicked first inside the last 200 metres and managed to hold off Stuyven to take his maiden grand tour stage win.

Swiss BMC rider Silvan Dillier celebrates as he crosses the finish line to win the 6th stage of the 100th Giro d'Italia, Tour of Italy, cycling race from Reggio di Calabria to Terme Luigiane Thursday.

Second time around everything was set for the expected sprint finish, with the general classification contenders kept out of trouble during the final turn through a roundabout and into the final kilometre.

They were comfortably caught by the peloton as teams began preparing for a sprint finish, with Orica-Scott aiming to set Ewan up for success. I had to do some work with three kilometres to go so I was a little exhausted for the sprint.

"The stage started bad for me because I flatted at kilometre zero". We went early, but that was the plan, and they just stayed so confident and so calm.

The 23-year-old was quickly reeled in by the chasing pack and he eventually finished the stage in 148th position. "But Luka [Mezgec] did a great leadout, so it was flawless". It's not a disappointment for our team to not win with Fernando Gaviria today, because he did a great sprint and the team helped him.

Welshman and recently crowned Tour of the Alps victor Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) is second on general classification (+0:06) while Ewan's British teammate Adam Yates is third (+0:10).

"It's no shame to lose against Caleb Ewan, who is very fast".
