Vini Fantini – Selle Italia’s Fabio Tabbore instigator of 2013 Giro d’Italia’s 3rd stage

Vini Fantini-Selle Italia’s Fabio Taborre spent much of the day in the virtual pink jersey after escaping early in the race and remaining well off the front until the 30km mark.


Taborre  was in an escape group with six other riders until the last 50km, when he decided to make a solo attack. He managed to open up about two minutes on the chase group until being caught and passed by defending champion Ryder Hesjedahl near the end of the race.

Though Hesjedahl’s attack put an end to Taborre’s time in the highlight, his teammate Mauro Santambrogio confirmed his wonderful season, remaining near the front with the race’s best riders to arrive fourth at the conclusion of the stage.
