Britain's Chris Froome won the 14th stage of the Giro d'Italia on Monte Zoncolan as compatriot Simon Yates extended his overall lead in the Alps.

Ireland's Sam Bennett didn't manage to repeat his winning heroics from earlier in the week, but he did gather some attention for executing a wheelie during the stage.

Footage showed the Carrick-on-Suir man riding with the front wheel raised in the air as he turned a corner with just under 46km to go.

Bennett came second yesterday in a sprint finish behind his main rival for the sprinter's purple jersey Elio Viviani, and has already won two stages of this year's Giro d'Italia. The Bora-Hansgrohe rider is 105th in the General Classification.

With the peloton swiftly breaking up as riders tackled the gruelling final climb on the 186km course from Sanvito Al Tagliamento, Team Sky's Froome surged clear to win stage 14  of the race by six seconds.

Mitchelton-Scott 's Yates was second - 31 seconds ahead of defending champion  and nearest challenger Tom Dumoulin in the battle for the maglia rosa.

With six bonus seconds for finishing second, Yates extended his overall advantage.

Nicolas Roche came in 136th and is 65th in the GC for BMC Racing, while Ryan Mullen took 143rd and is 154th overall for Trek-Segafredo.
