Ackermann sprints to second Giro stage win in heavy rain

German national champion Pascal Ackermann won a cold and wet fifth stage of the Giro d’Italia from Frascati to Terracina in a sprint finish. Slovenian Primoz Roglic retained the overall leader’s pink jersey while injured 2017 champion Tom Dumoulin abandoned the race shortly after the start of the 140km stage after a crash. It was the second stage win of the tour for the Bora-Hansgrohe rider, who crossed the finish line in 3 hours 27.05 seconds to beat Colombia’s Fernando Gaviria, who finished second, and third placed Arnaud Demare of France.
