Thre were two categorised climbs towards the end of the route
Diego Ulissi sprinted to victory at the end of the 13th stage of the Giro d'Italia on Friday, and Joao Almeida held onto the overall leader's pink jersey.
Ulissi, an Italian rider with UAE Team Emirates, launched his sprint with about 600 meters (yards) to go and edged Almeida and Patrick Konrad at the end of the mainly flat 192-kilometer (119-mile) leg from Cervia to Monselice.
Thre were two categorised climbs towards the end of the route.
It was Ulissi's second win in this year's Giro and eighth overall. He beat Peter Sagan to win Stage 2.
Almeida, a Portuguese rider with the Deceuninck-Quick Step team, moved 40 seconds ahead of Wilco Kelderman and 49 seconds ahead of Pello Bilbao.
Saturday's 14th stage is a 34.1-kilometer (21.2-mile) individual time trial from Conegliano to Valdobbiadene.
The Giro was rescheduled from its usual May slot because of the coronavirus pandemic. The race ends on Oct. 25 with an individual time trial in Milan.
