Bob Jungels retained the leader's pink jersey at the Giro d'Italia by keeping pace with a breakaway that gave Diego Ulissi victory on stage 11.

Ulissi held off Luxembourg's Jungels and Costa Rican Andrey Amador, who lies second overall, as the trio sprinted in 13 seconds ahead of the chasing pack.

It was Italian Ulissi's second stage win after his success on day four.

Spain's Mikel Nieve was the best-placed of Team Sky's riders in 25th. Lead rider Mikel Landa withdrew on Tuesday.

Giant-Alpecin's Tom Dumoulin, who won the opening time trial and wore the pink jersey for six days, dropped out of the race midway through Wednesday's stage because of saddle sores.
