Giro d'Italia Stage 14 (ITT): Conegliano › Valdobbiadene, 34.1km.

Filippo Ganna put in a blistering performance to win his third stage of the Giro d'Italia and the team's fourth stage victory of the race.

Ganna led home an INEOS Grenadiers 1-2 as Rohan Dennis finished second, 26 seconds behind the world time trial champion in Valdobbiadene.

The gap from second to third-placed Brandon McNulty (UAE Team Emirates) was over a minute, with Ganna and Dennis dominating the second time trial of the race. 

Tao Geoghegan Hart put in a strong performance to finish 13th on the stage, which saw the Londoner move up to 11th overall ahead of a return to the mountains on Sunday. 

Jonathan Castroviejo was the third rider in the top 10 as he finished eighth to round off a fantastic performance which strengthens the Grenadiers' lead in the team classification.

"
Every victory is important for me and in this Giro we have a really strong team we are winning from everywhere and we are really happy. 

"In the start I felt ok, we had a one kilometre climb, but it was five minutes of climbing and it was not easy, but once I got past the climb the legs felt good and as I got closer to the end they felt better and better.

"In the final week I hope the climbs will be sunny and not too cold - but the aim will be to save energy and recover well as there is still one more time trial remaining in Milan."
