OROPA, Italy -- Enrico Battaglin sprinted to victory on a tough uphill finish to claim the 14th stage of the Giro dItalia on Saturday as the race hit the first of the high mountains. Tracy Mcgrady Jersey . The Italian came from behind to overtake Jarlinson Pantano in the final 50 metres and edge out Dario Cataldo on the line after a climb to the sanctuary of Oropa, the scene of Marco Pantanis memorable victory in 1999. Pantano finished seven seconds behind. "I didnt believe I could do it until the last kilometre. My legs were at their limits, I was tired too," Battaglin said. "Then I saw that others too were breaking down. Then I gained some meters immediately, I gritted my teeth and I passed them in the last 20 metres. It is a superb win for me, what a fight." Rigoberto Uran of Colombia retained the overall lead but saw his advantage cut on the 164-kilometre (102-mile) route from Aglie. Cadel Evans -- who wore the pink jersey earlier in the race -- gained five seconds and is now 32 seconds behind Uran. Rafal Majka is third overall, 1:35 behind. "We lost a few seconds, but its no worry," Uran said. "The team is doing well, Im calm. But the Giro is still very open." It was the second of three stages dedicated to Pantani, the Italian cyclist who won both the Giro and Tour de France in 1998. He was found dead in a hotel room on Valentines Day in 2004, and a coroner ruled he died from cocaine poisoning. As the Giro entered the final week, the race entered the mountains and Fridays route had four categorized climbs including the steep final ascent. The breakaway of the day was formed of 21 riders but the peloton were happy to let them go, with none of the escapees less than half an hour behind Uran in the overall standings. The first two weeks of the Giro had been littered with crashes on wet roads, and even though the day was dry there was another crash with around 102K (63 miles) remaining as the peloton went through a roundabout. No one was seriously injured but Kanstantsin Siutsou later quit the race. Pieter Weening -- who won the ninth stage -- also retired during the day. The gap to the breakaway group went up to more than 10 minutes because of the crash but was back down to 9:29 at the start of the category 2 climb up to Alpe Noveis. And the peloton had gained more than two minutes at the top of the ascent after a gradient of up to 16 per cent. Nicolas Roche escaped from the break on the highest climb of the day, up the Bielmonte, which has a ski station at the summit. As he crested the top, he had 10 seconds on the remainder of the original break, which was down to 12 cyclists. The Irish cyclist was caught on the descent and Albert Timmer and Manuel Quinziato took over the lead before the latter had a mechanical problem at the start of the final climb. Timmer made an attempt to stay in front but was caught with 2K (1.2 miles) remaining by Cataldo and Pantano and dropped shortly after. Battaglin powered to catch the lead group inside the final kilometre and he surged forward again on the cobbled ramps up to the finish. Strong climbers Nairo Quintana and Domenico Pozzovivo will be looking to gain more time on Uran as the Giro stays in the mountains. Sundays 15th stage is mainly flat before another tough climb up to the finish of the 225K (140-mile) leg from Valdengo to Montecampione. C.J. Miles Jersey .

According to Sky sources, the former Hull City boss is the leading candidate for the role, closely followed by current interim boss Steve Clarke.

Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. They said they were in a process, which you have to respect, so Im hoping I hear something this week. It would be a terrific job, Im sure everyone would agree Villa are one of the big clubs of this country and they need a little bit of turning around at the moment.But they have huge support and theyre a big, big club so hopefully I hear something this week. Steve Bruce admits leaving Hull was a very tough choice but says a change in direction by the chairman was the reason behind his decision to walk away The struggling Sky Bet Championship club are searching for a new manager having dismissed Roberto Di Matteo after just 12 games last week.Bruce resigned from Hull in the summer following a dispute over transfer policy and was on the list of candidates to be the England manager after Euro 2016.

Alex McLeish lasted just 11 months before he was sacked in May 2012.Asked if he may have second thoughts on the new role on the back of McLeishs experiences, Bruce added: Thats the big thing everyone has to weigh up but that was 10 years ago, you cant go over the past.At the end of the day Im a football manager whos out of work and I still think Ive got something offer. Ive been there and done it in the Championship. Whats your favourite? Vote for your best Premier League goal from the 100 club Youd rather be in the Premier League, who wouldnt, but if the opportunity arose it would be something I would seriously consider because of what the club has to offer.Most people have come to accept that it [McLeish] was 10 years ago and I think Alex walked from the Birmingham job into Villa. But there have been people in the background that have worked for both clubs so I dont think in this day and age it would be a big problem, I hope not anyway.In the meantime, Clarke remains in charge on a caretaker basis. Sky Sports News HQ understands the club will be speaking with him about the managers job early this week.You can watch Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the British Masters on Sky Sports.
