VIDEO: Pirazzi takes stage 17 Giro victory

Italy’s Stefano Pirazzi won stage 17 of the Giro d’Italia, holding off his rivals to win in Vittorio Veneto.

The 27-year-old was part of a five-man break and made his move late on to earn the first Giro stage win of his career.

The Bardiani Valvole rider broke down in tears after sealing the win, his team’s third of this year’s Giro.

Nairo Quintana retained the overall leader’s pink jersey, the Colombian retaining his lead of one minute 41 seconds over compatriot Rigoberto Uran.
