Fraile Takes Stage 11, Dumoulin Retains Overall Lead

Spaniard Omar Fraile won the 11th stage of the Giro D'italia, a hilly 161 kilometer trek from Florence to Bagno di Romagna, though Dutchman tom Dumoulin clung to his overall lead despite several attacks from his rivals.

Fraile beat former world champion Rui Costa at the end of a long breakaway. France's Pierre Rolland finished third.

Briton Geraint Thomas, who had gained some ground back in Tuesday's time trial after his ninth-stage crash, was unable to follow the top guns in the last climb.

Dumoulin kept his cool despite repeated attacks from Italian Vincenzo Nibali and Frenchman Thibaut pinot to stay ahead of Colombian Nairo Quintana.
