Costa Rica's Andrey Amador defied the elements to win stage 14 of the Giro d'Italia in the Alps as Canadian Ryder Hesjedal moved back into the pink jersey. Movistar’s Amador outsprinted fellow escapees Jan Barta (NetApp) and Alessandro De Marchi (Androni Giocattoli) to take the first professional win of his career in cold and wet Cervinia. The trio – who held an eight-minute lead over the peloton at the start of the final 26km climb – were almost caught by Garmin-Barracuda’s Hesjedal, who attacked with gusto from a group of race favourites on the final climb of the 206km stage and finished 20 seconds down in fourth place.
