SAVONA, Italy (AP) -- Michael Rogers took advantage of a downhill attack to win the 11th stage of the Giro d'Italia on Wednesday, while fellow Australian Cadel Evans retained the overall lead.

Rogers, who was recently cleared of a doping charge, attacked with more than 20 kilometers (12 miles) to go in the 249-kilometer (155-mile) leg from Collecchio to Savona, just after the pack got over a category 2 climb.

Simon Geschke of Germany won the bunch sprint for second, crossing 10 seconds after Rogers, and Enrico Battaglin of Italy finished third with the same time.

Evans' 57-second lead over Rigoberto Uran remained unchanged entering Thursday's 41.9-kilometer (26-mile) individual time trial from Barbaresco to Barolo.

Last month, the UCI accepted that meat Rogers ate in China probably caused his positive test last year.
