Marcel Kittel timed his sprint perfectly to clinch the second stage of the Giro d’Italia, a 190-kilometre trek from Arnhem to the Dutch town of Nijmegen.

The Etixx-QuickStep rider, back in form after a disappointing 2015 season, opened up a gap of several bike lengths before sealing the win ahead of Frenchman Arnaud Demare and Italy’s Sacha Modolo.

Kittel now has 12 grand-tour stage wins to his name and this result sees him close the gap on leader Tom Dumoulin. The 27-year-old German is only one second adrift going into stage 3.
