(Reuters) - Britain's Chris Froome produced an astonishing lone attack to roar into the overall Giro d'Italia lead on Friday, winning stage 19 with a performance that will go down in cycling folklore.

The Team Sky rider started the 185km stage from Venaria Reale to Bardonecchia more than three minutes back in fourth place on the overall standings but finished 40 seconds ahead after leaving his rivals in his tracks with a searing burst of pace 80km from home on the Colle delle Finestre.
