MONTECOPIOLO, Italy (AP) -- A final push from Diego Ulissi saw the Italian win a tough eighth stage as the Giro d'Italia took to the mountains Saturday, while Cadel Evans ended Michael Matthews' grip on the overall lead.

Ulissi made his move inside the final 300 meters, bursting out of the peloton to edge out Robert Kiserlovski for a second stage win in the race.

Wilco Kelderman was third on the 179-kilometer (111-mile) leg from Foligno to Montecopiolo, which had two category one climbs, including the final ascent to the finish.

Evans finished fifth to take the lead from fellow Australian Michael Matthews, who had worn the pink jersey for six days.

Evans has a 57-second advantage over Rigoberto Uran Uran, with Rafal Majka third.
