Britain’s Tao Geoghegan Hart won the Giro d’Italia on Sunday to claim his first Grand Tour win just 39 seconds ahead of Australian Jai Hindley as the three-week race went down to the wire in the 21st and final stage time-trial. The 25-year-old Team Ineos rider had been neck-and-neck with Hindley going into the closing day, but lifted the “Never ending trophy’ after finishing the race against the clock ahead of Sunweb’s Hindley who finished second overall.
“It’s incredible! It was impossible for me to even think about winning the Giro when we started in Sicily.” Geogehegan Hart said in Milan.
“All of my career I have dreamt of being top 10 or top 5 in a race like this.”
