Part two of our 2019 Giro d’Italia A to Z. We go from the heartwarming stories of Chad Haga and Esteban Chaves to the Z of Ilnur Zakarin (God knows what we’ll do when that guy retires from grand tour racing …).
A grand tour is always about more than just the final podium – there are battles within battles within battles. And there are always one or two heartwarming stories that restore your faith in whatever you’ve lost faith in … The 2019 Giro d’Italia was no exception. It had it all – including some horrific weather – and while it might not have been the most exciting Giro on record, it certainly had something interesting, confusing or astonishing every day.
