Giro d’Italia 2014: stage 18 – photo gallery

Julian Arredondo wins as Colombians take charge of the Corsa Rosa

Colombians are renowned for their climbing ability, but even with that in mind the way the South Americans have taken charge of the final week of the Giro d’Italia has been impressive.

Julian Arredondo (Trek Factory Racing), who has dominated the King of the Mountains classification since first capturing the blue jersey became the third of his countrymen – after Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and Rigoberto Uran (Omega Pharma-Quickstep) – to win a stage of this year’s race.

And with Fabio Duarte (Team Colombia) completing a Colombian one-two on the day, and Quintana and Uran continuing to occupy the top two places of the general classification, they have certainly given their compatriots something to cheer.

Stefano Sirotti was on hand to capture all the action from an enthralling day. Relive the stage in the full-screen gallery below.
