Simon Yates in the pink as Giro d'Italialeader

Bennett has moved into ninth place overall after narrowly missing out on a podium finish on the 163 kilometre sixth stage to the top of Mount Etna in Sicily which was won by Colombia's Esteban Chaves.

And it was Bora-Hansgrohe left celebrating victory as Bennett latched on to the wheel of Quick-Step Floors' Viviani and overcame the Italian in the closing metres.

Bennett said the key to his win was grabbing Viviani's wheel and a bit of patience. The stage was a 159-km run from Pizzo Calabro near Vibo Valentia to Praia a Mare near Cosenza.

The 27-year-old Waterford cyclist out-sprinted some of the best in the world to take the line on stage seven into Praia A Mare after 158km.

Sam Bennett became the first Irish stage victor at the Giro d'Italia for 31 years yesterday when he powered to victory over favourite Elia Viviani in a scintillating sprint finish at Praia a Mare.

Thibaut Pinot was third on the 164-kilometer (102-mile) route from Caltanissetta. "I had the power, I knew what I was capable of, but it's one thing having the belief and another thing doing it", said the Carrick-on-Suir man.

First, the riders will take on the summit finish of the Montevergine di Mercogliano - a 17.1 kilometre climb which is less hard than stage six's Etna, but is likely to still only leave the best climbers standing at the end, due to the length of the climb.

He is on a long-term project to transition from a time trial specialist into becoming an overall contender for the three-week Grand Tours - the Giro, the Tour de France and the Vuelta a Espana.

Englishman Yates holds a 16-second advantage over defending champion Tom Dumoulin, who was back in eighth in the first mountain summit finish of the race. "For us as a team it was flawless. It was a little bit stressful in the final but it's always like that".

"Tomorrow, if I have the legs, I might try something".

Yates added: "I felt really good, I looked across the road and everyone was looking at each other".
