The 2021 Giro d’Italia has ended. Egan Bernal took home the maglia rosa and the Twittersphere ended that tough third week with a blistering stretch of tweets. No one was left behind!

- The stages we adored, despite not seeing
- Our MVPs of the race
- A lot of Ganna love
- A little EF love

Catch up on the blog!
Filippo Ganna (INEOS Grenadiers) triumphed at his 4th consecutive Giro d’Italia time trial. Not even a late puncture and bike change could keep the World Champion from the top step of the podium. In truth, it would have been a heck of lot closer, and peut-etre even a second place, if his nearest rival Remi Cavagna (Deceuninck Quick Step) hadn’t completely misjudged a corner to fly off into the barriers!! Egan Bernal (INEOS-Grenadiers) paced it perfectly in pink to take possession of the most beautiful trophy in all of cycling on his debut Giro. Bahrain-Victorious’ Damiano Caruso cruised around to solidify his marvellous second place and Simon Yates (BikeExchange) held on to his third. Aleksandr Vlasov (Astana) stayed in forth, while Dani Martinez (INEOS Grenadiers) and Joao Almeida moved up to finish 5th and 6th respectively.
