Lennard Kamna (BORA-hansgrohe) won the first mountain stage of the 2022 road cycling's Giro d'Italia atop Mount Etna on Tuesday (10 May).

The German rider took his second career victory in a Grand Tour as he edged Juan Pedro Lopez (Trek-Segafredo) a few metres from the finish line after the duo emerged from a 14-rider attack.

The Spaniard led for the majority of the final climb and was caught with just 2.6km to go but his performance saw him move into the lead of the GC.

"The feeling is absolutely amazing, one month ago I didn't expect it and I'm just so happy that it immediately worked out," said Kamna after his win.

Early into stage four Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana-Qazaqstan) abandoned the race due to a left hip injury, while another potential GC contender, Tom Dumoulin, was dropped on the final ascent, along with former winner Vincenzo Nibali.

On Wednesday (11 May) the Giro remains for the second day in Sicily with stage 5 from Catania to Messina.
