2018 Giro d’Italia – Results

Giro d'Italia logo
The 2018 Giro d’Italia was won by four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome, of Great Britain.

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 101 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.

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.
