Greipel, the powerful 33-year-old sprinter from Lotto-Soudal, launched his drive to the line early on the final punchy flagstone ramp, spotting a gap and never looking back as he roared to the fourth Giro stage scalp of his career. Frenchman Arnaud Demare (FDJ) won the distant battle for second ahead of Italy's Sonny Colbrelli (Bardiani-CSF) after the red jersey and pre-stage favourite Marcel Kittel (Etixx-QuickStep) was dropped on the challenging finish circuit at the end of the 233-kilometre stage from Praia a Mare. Luxembourg's Bob Jungels (Giant-Alpecin) took fourth place and slashed his deficit to race leader Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) by four seconds thanks to a split on the front of the pack. Dutchman Dumoulin, the maglia rosa, now leads Jungels by 16 seconds at the top of the standings with Tuesday's stage 4 winner Diego Ulissi (Lampre-Merida) in third a further four seconds back.
