Zana Flies to Maiden Grand Tour Victory at Giro d’Italia

Team Jayco AlUla (Italy) - Press Release: Italian champion Filippo Zana put in a ride for the ages on stage 18 of the Giro d’Italia, winning from the breakaway in the tricolore to make it a memorable day for the Italian and Team Jayco AlUla.

Zana made it into a seven-rider break that openend up a sizeable gap on the road from Oderzo to Val di Zoldo, and as the ante upped onto the final climb into Palafavera, the 24-year-old found himself head-to-head with Thibaut Pinot in the battle for victory.

In a two-up sprint for the line after a tough day’s climbing, Zana played his cards to perfection to cross the finish line with his arms aloft, and celebrated a momentous first Grand Tour stage win – the team’s second success of the 2023 edition of the race.
