Biniam Girmay won stage 10 of road cycling's 2022 Giro d'Italia on Tuesday (17 May) to become the first Eritrean and black African to win a stage of the Grand Tour race.

The 22-year-old, who had previously recorded five top-five finishes, wouldn't be denied in a thrilling sprint finish into Jesi as he pipped Mathieu Van der Poel on the line. Girmay's finish time was 04:32:07.

"It's unbelievable. The team started well. We controlled the whole race. I don't have any words for my team and what they did today. I'm really happy," Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux rider said afterwards.

"This success was also down to my team and my family."

Van der Poel succumbed to second while Vincenzo Albanese sealed third.

Spain's Juan Pedro Lopez retains the overall lead as the riders now prepare for the mostly flat Santarcangelo di Romagna to Reggio Emilia Stage 11 route tomorrow (18 May).
