RIFUGIO PANAROTTA, Italy (AP) — Julian Arredondo claimed a solo victory on the 18th stage of the Giro d'Italia on Thursday, while Nairo Quintana retained the overall leader's pink jersey as the race returned to the mountains.

Arredondo had been part of a breakaway and made his move with just under 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) remaining to ride alone up the summit finish to Rifugio Panarotta.

The Colombian had time to raise one arm into the air as he crossed the finish line, 17 seconds ahead of Fabio Duarte. Philip Deignan was 20 seconds further back.

Quintana remained 1:41 ahead of fellow Colombian Rigoberto Uran, with Pierre Rolland moving into third place as former race leader Cadel Evans slipped to ninth.

Rolland is 3:29 behind Quintana, two seconds ahead of Fabio Aru.
