Dillier wins stage 6 of the Giro, Jungels retains lead

TERME LUIGIANE, Italy (AP) Silvan Dillier won from an early breakaway to take the sixth stage of the Giro d'Italia on Thursday while Bob Jungels moved into the overall lead.

Dillier began his sprint with 150 meters to go on the climb to the finish and had the power to hold off Jasper Stuyven, who banged his bars in anger and frustration as he crossed the line half a wheel behind the Swiss cyclist.

Lukas Postlberger, who won the opening stage, was third, 12 seconds behind the front two at the end of the 217-kilometer (135-mile) route from Reggio Calabria to Terme Luigiane as the race moved to mainland Italy.

The Giro ends on May 28.
