Thibaut Pinot was third on the 164-kilometer (102-mile) route from Caltanissetta.

After a gruelling final climb along a 150m stretch of road, Aru crossed the line - under the shadow of the Etna Astrophysical Observatory - with the main peloton, just 26 seconds behind race victor Johan Eseban Chavez (Mitchelton Scott). "I didn't really have to do anything, I could sit in the wheels and save energy".

"It worked out perfectly". "There was a little bit of a gap, so I took the chance".
