VIDEO: Highlights of stage 19 at 2024 Giro d'Italia as Andrea Vendrame takes victory and Geraint Thomas survives late crash

With the breakaway being allowed to fight for the win on stage 19 of the 2024 Giro d'Italia, Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale Team's Andrea Vendrame secured the second stage win of his Giro career ahead of Pelayo Sanchez and Georg Steinhauser.

The Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale Team has been incredibly successful in the early part of the 2024 season, one of those riders still waiting for a triumph was Vendrame. The Italian finally got a win for himself on stage 19, emulating his feat from back in 2021 when he took his first Grand Tour stage win.

Over ten minutes down the road in a quite innocuous incident, the INEOS Grenadiers leader, Geraint Thomas was busy looking around at the rest of the group and didn't notice his front wheel about to clip the back wheel of the White Jersey, Antonio Tiberi. As the Welshman slipped down to the ground, both Daniel Martinez and Tadej Pogacar were forced into evasive action. Thankfully, Thomas seems without any real injuries and was quickly able to get back to his feet. Despite needing a bike change, he then calmly worked his way back to the group of his rivals.
