ANTERSELVA, Italy (Reuters) - Frenchman Nans Peters claimed the biggest win of his career when he prevailed in the 17th stage of the Giro d'Italia, a 181-km ride from Commezzadura on Wednesday.

Peters jumped away from a group of breakaway riders and the AG2R-La Mondiale rider held off the chasers in the final climb, a 5.5-km effort at an average gradient of 6.9%.

Colombian Esteban Chaves finished second ahead of Italian Davide Formolo.

Ecuador's Richard Carapaz retained the overall leader's pink jersey.
