Nijmegen - Germany's Marcel Kittel, of the Etixx-QuickStep team, dominated a bunch sprint to win the second stage of the 99th Giro d'Italia on Saturday.

Dutchman Tom Dumoulin, of the Giant-Alpecin team, held on to the race leader's pink jersey following his slim victory in the opening stage time trial on Friday.

At the end of a 190 km race between Arnhem and Nijmegen, Kittel pulled ahead of a dwindling field of sprint specialists in the final 150 metres to solo over the finish line in triumph.

Frenchman Arnaud Demare, of FDJeux.com, finished second with Italian Sacha Modolo (Lampre) in third.
