Giovanni Visconti won the 17th stage of the Giro d'Italia on Wednesday to claim another solo victory, while Vincenzo Nibali maintained his grip on the overall lead.
Visconti, who also won Sunday's 15th stage with an impressive solo climb, attacked near the top of the Crosara to triumph in a time of 5 hours, 15 minutes, 34 seconds, along the mainly flat 214 kilometers (133 miles) from Caravaggio to Vicenza.
Ramunas Navardauskas led a bunch group over the line to finish second, 19 seconds behind Visconti. Luka Mezgec was third.
Nibali, who finished third and second in his last two Giro races, maintained his lead of 1:26 over Cadel Evans and remains firmly on course to win his country's biggest cycling race for the first time.
The Giro ends May 26 in Brescia.
