He charged home ahead of Lotto rider Brent Van Moer, home hope Simone Velasco, Jan Bakelants and Movistar’s Nelson Oliveira.
In the overall standings UAE Team Emirates rider Pogacar maintains his 1min 15sec lead over Wout Van Aert ahead of Tuesday’s final stage, a 10.1km individual time-trial at San Benedetto del Tronto.
