Giro d’Italia 2016 : Stage 15 – Foliforov wins as Kruijswijk extends lead
Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNL-Jumbo) will head into tomorrow’s rest day with a very healthy lead at the top of the Giro d’Italia’s general classification. Kruijswijk was pipped to the post by young Russian outsider Alexander Foliforov (Gazprom-Rusvelo) in stage 15’s mountain time trial, but still managed to gain time on the contenders for the maglia rosa. He’s in a very good position to become the first ever Dutchman to win this prestigious race.
