Giro D’Italia – Stage 5

The breakaway stuck. I have to admit, I’ve always been a fan of successful breakaways, especially those when the peloton and the sprinters are bearing down on their victims like lions chasing prey. Today, it was Jérôme Pineau, benefactor of the combination of perseverance of the break and mis-calculation of the group. He won on the line in convincing fashion beating Julien Fouchard and Yukiya Arashiro, the latter being the first Japanese rider to place in the top 3 in the Giro D’Italia.
