Fight for pink: A 2015 Giro d'Italia gallery

From the start in San Lorenzo al Mare to the finish in Milan, photos capture May's traveling road show

Never known to be low on drama, the Giro d'Italia delivered again in 2015 with three thrilling weeks of racing that saw forbidden help between countrymen on different teams, weather that tested the mettle and nerves of the riders, a past champion who rose to the occasion in the final week but fell just short of the podium, and a returning champion who was under threat from a younger up-and-coming rival.

From the opening team time trial in San Lorenzo al Mare to the incredibly cagey two-up sprint for the final stage win in Milan, the Italian Grand Tour provided plenty of compelling action.

In the end, it was Alberto Contador that went on to take the overall victory ahead of Astana teammates Fabio Aru and Mikel Landa.
