Giro d'Italia stage 14: Sierre › Cassano Magnago, 194km.

Geraint Thomas moved down to second overall after the breakaway prevailed on stage 14 of the Giro d'Italia. 

Bruno Armirail (Groupama - FDJ) moved into the maglia rosa after being the best-placed rider in a large break that amassed a sizeable advantage of nearly 20 minutes over the Grenadiers-led peloton. 

The team focused on safely navigating a technical final in sodden conditions, with the aim to conserve energy and recover ahead of a tough stage 15 and a difficult final week, finishing 21 minutes behind  stage winner Nico Denz and 20 minutes after Armirail crossed the line. 

Sunday's stage sees the Grenadiers take on another climbing test, with four categorised climbs and over 3800 meters of climbing.
