Alpe di Mera, Italy

Britain’s Simon Yates launched a solo attack to win the 19th stage of the Giro d’Italia on the Alpe di Mera summit on Friday, but Egan Bernal stayed in the overall lead.

Colombian Bernal, the 2019 Tour de France champion, finished third on the day to keep hold of the leaders’ pink jersey with only two stages remaining.

He now leads second-placed Damiano Caruso in the general classification by two minutes and 29 seconds, with Yates 20 seconds further back. —AP
