Cycling-Lafay wins stage eight of Giro d’Italia as Ewan abandons race

Frenchman Lafay, 25, was among a group of nine in the breakaway on the final climb of the 170km stage and held off a late surge from Eolo-Kometa’s Francesco Gavazzi who finished second with Team DSM’s Nikias Arndt third. “I spent a lot of energy already in the first part of the stage to get into the breakaway,” Lafay said. Groupama-FDJ’s Attila Valter retained the leader’s pink jersey with none of the general classification contenders losing time as they crossed the line in the same group.
