Navardauskas Wins Stage 11 of Giro d'Italia 2013

Ramunas Navardauskas (Garmin-Sharp) has won Stage 11 of the Giro d'Italia. The Lithuanian soloed away from Daniel Oss (BMC) with slightly more than five km remaining to take the hilly, 182-km ride from Tarvisio to Vajont in 4:23:14.

the general classification was 10 minutes down, so the contenders could take it easy in view of the big stages that are approaching.

"[Oss] is a good rider. He was in the breakaway, so he clearly had good legs. I didn't know how strong he was going to be on the last climb. We worked together until the climb began. While he was leading, I tried to see how he was feeling. I accelerated a couple of times to see how he would respond, and then I saw that I had better legs. I made one attack, then a harder one, and then I saw I was alone. Then I tried to pace myself. The gap was never huge, and right until the end I thought he would get a second wind."

In the overall, Nibali leads Cadel Evans (BMC) by 0:41 and Rigoberto Uran (Sky) by 2:04. Stage 12 will not change this state of affairs. The 134-km run from Longarone to Treviso will feature two Category 4 ascents, but the last 30 km will be flat. A bunch sprint should decide the stage. Who will win it? Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-Quick Step)? Matthew Goss (GreenEdge)? Elia Viviani (Cannondale)? Check in at and find out!
