Santambrogio Wins Stage 14 of Giro; Nibali Extends Overall Lead

Mauro Santambrogio (Vini Fantini-Selle Italia) has won Stage 14 of the Giro d'Italia. Santambrogio followed an attack by maglia rosa Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) on the day's final climb and took a two-up sprint to win the mountainous 180-km ride from Cervere to Bardonecchia in 4:42:55.

the overall, Nibali leads Evans by 1:26 and Rigoberto Uran (Sky) by 2:46. Stage 15 will be another standing shaker. The stage, which was originally scheduled to be 144 km long and to end of the summit of the Col du Galibier in France, is now scheduled to conclude 4.25 km from the summit because of the weather. As matters stand, the riders will take on the Category 1 Col du Mont Cenis and the Category 2 Col du Telegraphe before ending the stage on the Galibier. Will Nibali take more time out of his competition? Will his competition narrow the gap between him and them? Will weather further alter the course? For the answers to these questions and others, check in at www.roadcycling.com and find out!
