BITONTO, Italy (AP) — American sprinter Tyler Farrar won his second stage of the Giro d’Italia and Alexandre Vinokourov held onto the overall leader’s pink jersey.
Farrar, who also won the second stage, covered a rolling 143-mile route from Avellino to Bitonto in 5 hours, 49 minutes, 14 seconds on Tuesday.
Fabio Sabatini of the Liquigas team was second in the sprint finish to end the 10th stage and Farrar’s Garmin teammate Julian Dean was third.
Vinokourov maintained a lead of 1 minute, 12 seconds over world champion Cadel Evans.
Wednesday’s 11th stage is the race’s longest. It’s 163 miles from Lucera to L’Aquila, the site of an earthquake that killed 308 people last year.
