Part Two of our Giro d’Italia 2022 A to Z kicks off with Now or Never – riders who saw their chance and took it! And we finish up with Zero stage wins … teams who unfortunately didn’t come away with victory. We also have tears, tiny fans, one very quixotic rider and the best cycling photographers in the world.
It’s a return of the Grand Tour A to Zs with Giro d’Italia 2022. We collect the good, the bad, the pinapple pizzas and the pain faces; stats, shout-outs and so much fun
Australia’s Jai Hindley of Bora-hansgrohe ripped the leader’s pink jersey from the shoulders of Richard Carapaz (Ineos) with a savage attack on the final mountain climb of this year’s Giro d’Italia. He heads into tomorrow’s time trial finale with a 1.25 advantage over the Ecuadorian. Barring disaster, he will be holding that magnificent Giro trophy aloft tomorrow evening.
Alessandro Covi won the stage for UAE Team Emirates, the Italian’s biggest win to date, but the headlines will be all Hindley’s.
