The 2019 Giro d’Italia has now come to a close, so the Twitterstream has been trawled for some pink tweets for the last time this season. We have the new champion and reactions from and about the final podium; we have the feel-good stories of the week with Esteban Chaves and Chad Haga; there’s a possible aftermath of the Lopez Goes Bonkers episode and Adam Hansen shares his vegan treats (not a euphemism). Plus much much more …
From Jerusalem to Rome via some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable. The Giro has made us cheer, scream, cry and laugh. Let’s relive La Vie en Rose in Part 1 of our A to Z of #Giro101.
Oh, what a dull dull stage this was, riding through the desert, past building sites. But once again, Elia Viviani gave us a thrill at the end, this time having to fend off a very dodgy Sam Bennett sprint line that nearly put the Italian into the barriers. Rohan Dennis stayed safe in pink and the only change in the GC top 5 was Victor Campenaerts (Lotto Fix All) losing time and dropping out of the top 10 altogether.
