Simon Yates and Dumoulin a step ahead in Osimo

Matej Mohoric beat Nico Denz in a two-man sprint finish to win the 10th stage of the Giro d'Italia

He is one of just two British riders with more than one stage win in the same Giro, the other being Mark Cavendish.

Yates picked up three more seconds on defending champion Tom Dumoulin by taking bonuses from the intermediate sprint, but saw Mitchelton-Scott team-mate Esteban Chaves lose second place overall and drop out of the top 10 in a blow for his team.

Dumoulin, who is a time-trial specialist, was two seconds behind Yates in second.

But once Chaves was distanced, the teams of overall hopefuls including four-time Tour de France victor Chris Froome, reigning champion Dumoulin, local favourite Fabio Aru and French hope Pinot, pushed the pace in the peloton to ensure the Colombian never regained contact.

"Chaves just had a bad moment on the first climb of the day", Yates said.

Populist cleric Sadr all but wins Iraq parliament election
Sadr faces a hard act to herd together enough groups from across Iraq's fragmented political spectrum to form a government. Since he did not run for a seat, he will not be eligible for the role.

The Team Sky rider now slips to 12th overall, three minutes and 20 seconds off the race lead.

Yates now leads by 41sec from Dumoulin with Pinot third at 46sec.

"I don't know, I really don't know", Dumoulin explained.

On Monday's rest day, Pinot had already warned of the dangers of the Giro's traversal of Umbria and the Marche, and suggested that he was already expecting to lose ground to more explosive riders like Yates. "I need as many seconds as I can get so maybe I need to go for more bonus seconds". The resolution of salbutamol case notwithstanding, Froome will surely have to give serious thought to pulling out and preparing for the Tour de France if he can not arrest the downward trend at the weekend.

Mohoric thanked his team, which is centered around Domenico Pozzovivo in fourth overall, for letting him go for the victory.

West Ham's three-man shortlist to replace Moyes
Manager David Moyes is reportedly likely to leave West Ham United despite successfully keeping the Hammers in the Premier League.

"In this game, if you're not at your absolute best you've got nowhere to hide".

As the attacks petered out, Slovenian Mohoric stayed clear alongside AG2R La Mondiale's Denz and had enough to hold off the German at the line, winning some 34 seconds ahead of the main bunch, led by Irish sprinter Sam Bennett of Bora-Hansgrohe. Four children and five adults were pulled alive from the snow and debris days after the avalanche.

Then after a couple of milder stages, the race heats up again with a climb up Monte Zoncolan on Saturday and a grueling leg through the Dolomite Range on Sunday.

The race ends in Rome on May 27.
