After a disappointing Giro d'Italia campaign thus far which has seen him way out of the GC race at over 20 minutes down through the first two weeks, Hugh Carthy showed fighting spirit on stage 15 through the Alps to Cogne on Sunday.

The Briton had headed to Italy hoping to challenge high up the overall, having finished eighth in 2019 as well as third at the 2020 Vuelta a España. However, that hasn't worked out for Carthy, and he has had to refocus on stage wins.
