Bob Jungels triumphed from a select group of riders on the 15th stage of the Giro D’Italia, with the Luxembourg rider sprinting to victory in Bergamo.

Jungels was part of a small group of riders who broke clear on the final climb, which included the general classification contenders.

There was a moment's concern for second placed Nairo Quintana when the Colombian crashed on a descent, but the pace was slowed in the group to allow the Movistar rider to rejoin.

An attack from Jungels with four kilometres to go garnered a response from defending champion Vincenzo Nibali, with the Italian joining the move.

The pair were quickly caught on a descent, but Jungels would win a sprint to the line to claim his first Grand Tour stage win in four hours, 16min and 51sec.

Quintana would sprint to second place and France's Thibaut Pinot took third, with the pair claiming time bonuses for the positions.

Overall leader Tom Dumoulin finished on the same time.

"It's not easy to realise but I'm super happy with this victory," said Jungels.

"I knew I had good legs today as I felt good in the climbs.

"I tried my luck in the final climb but it was a bit longer than I expected.

"In the downhill I was in a perfect position, on the wheel of [Domenico] Pozzovivo for sprinting.

"This is my first sprint victory, to do it at the Giro in front of these guys is wonderful."

Dumoulin still holds a strong advantage in the general classification, but the Dutchman's lead over Quintana is down to 2min 41sec.

Pinot is 3:21 down on the race leader, while Nibali currently lies in fourth place at 3:40 adrift.

The International Cycling Union (UCI) WorldTour race will continue on Tuesday (May 23), with a rest day taking place tomorrow.
