Giro d’Italia 2013: stage 15 – photo gallery

The Giro d’Italia regularly produces some of the most dramatic images of the year and the snow-swept mountains which provided the backdrop to stage 15 failed to disappoint.

The stage saw the Giro briefly detour into France but race organisers were forced to alter the route for the second day running, after the climb to Sestriere was removed from stage 14, with the finish moved four kilometres from the summit of the Col du Galibier due to heavy snow.

The peloton also neutralised the opening climb of the day, Mont Cenis, ahead of the Col du Telegraphe and Galibier.

Giovanni Visconti (Movistar) was part of the day’s break and stayed clear all the way to the finish to claim the biggest win of his career.

Here’s how the action unfolded through the lens of Stefano Sirotti.
