The 2019 Giro d’Italia was won by Ecuador’s Richard Carapaz.
The Giro d’Italia is one of professional cycling’s three Grand Tour races, alongside the Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana. The Giro d’Italia is an annual multiple-stage professional cycling race that takes place primarily in Italy in late May and early June in the lead-in to the Tour de France.
The Giro d’Italia was first raced in 1909 and was established by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, and has been staged on 102 occasions. It is raced across 23 days with 21 stages interspersed with two rest days, and normally concludes in the northern Italian city of Milan – although 2018 saw a break with tradition as the tour ended in Rome, while 2019 saw it end in Verona.
Three riders – Alfredo Binda, Fausto Coppi and Eddie Merckx – have tasted success at the Giro d’Italia on a record five occasions. Other notable winners of Italy’s most prestigious cycling race include Miguel Indurain, Marco Pantani and Alberto Contador.
