MONTECAMPIONE, Italy (AP) -- Fabio Aru of Italy claimed a solo victory on the tough uphill finish to Montecampione to win the 15th stage of the Giro d'Italia on Saturday for his first Grand Tour victory.

Aru made his move with 2.5 kilometers (1.55 miles) remaining and finished 21 seconds ahead of Fabio Duarte. Nairo Quintana edged out Pierre Rolland for third place, 22 seconds behind.

The 23-year-old Aru also cut into Rigoberto Uran's overall lead and is now fourth, 2 minutes, 24 seconds behind the Colombian.

Uran extended his advantage over his closest challengers and is 1:03 ahead of Cadel Evans and 1:50 ahead of Rafal Majka.

It was another stage dedicated to the late Marco Pantani, who had a memorable victory up to Montecampione on his way to winning the 1998 Giro.
