Queen stage action from Trentino and another tricky sprint finish from Croatia. It’s a Final Kilometre of just the right size to go with breakfast.

GP Ouest France-Plouay preview
The last Sunday in August means it’s time for the peloton to migrate to Brittany and congregate in the beautiful Moribihan region, not for cider and crepes (at least not until after the race), but for the 49th edition of the GP Ouest France-Plouay.
Giro Stage 21: Keisse derails the sprint trains, Contador secures overall victory
At the end of a Giro d’Italia which has revelled in its daily unpredictability, it was fitting that the concluding sprinters’ stage instead came down to a straight mano a mano between two of the peloton’s unsung powerhouses. Iljo Keisse finally delivered something for his Etixx-Quick Step team to celebrate at the end of a lacklustre three weeks, edging out Luke Durbridge who narrowly failed to provide a victory that would have neatly bookended a successful race for Orica-GreenEDGE, the dominant squad in the opening stages.
Alberto Contador finished safely to confirm his seventh grand tour victory. He joins Bernard Hinault as the only rider to have won all three grand tours at least twice.
