Elia Viviani was stripped of victory as stage three of the Giro d’Italia ended in a chaotic sprint in Orbetello.
Deceuninck-QuickStep’s Viviani crossed the line first at the end of the 219km stage from Vinci and looked to have taken victory but the Italian national champion was relegated for changing his line and blocking Trek-Segafredo’s Matteo Moschetti. He was placed 73rd, at the back of the first group of finishers. That elevated Team UAE Emirates’ Fernando Gaviria to victory with Groupama-FDJ’s Arnaud Démare second.
