Giro d’Italia 2013: stage ten – photo gallery

The 2013 Giro d’Italia moved into the high mountains on stage ten, providing Rigoberto Uran (Team Sky) with the platform to earn his first Grand Tour stage win.

It was a bittersweet day for Team Sky, however, with Bradley Wiggins distanced by his general classification rivals on the final climb.

Uran, who jumps to third overall, attacked with eight kilometres remaining of the 167km stage, which finished with the ascent of the Altopiano del Montasio.

The Colombian rode solo to the finish, crossing the line 20 seconds ahead of compatriot Carlos Betancur (Ag2r La Mondiale), who had jumped clear of a group which contained both Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) and Cadel Evans (BMC Racing).

Wiggins, who dropped back on the steepest section of the climb, limited his losses to finish 37 seconds behind the Nibali-Evans group and remains fourth overall going into stage 11.
