Giro d'Italia: Final GC standings
Hindley wins the Giro with a lead of 1:18 over Carapaz and 3:24 over Landa
The Giro d'Italia concluded on Sunday with a time trial in Verona, setting in stone the full and final general classification.
Jai Hindley (Bora-Hansgrohe) topped the standings and won the race overall, holding off Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) in the final 17.4km of racing against the clock.
Mikel Landa (Bahrain Victorious) claimed the final spot on the podium.
Having cracked his rival on the Marmolada the previous afternoon, Hindley started the final time trial with a lead of 1:25 over Carapaz and produced a strong ride to concede just seven seconds of that buffer.
As such, he topped the final standings with an advantage of 1:18 over the Ecuadorian.
Landa had feint hopes of overhauling Carapaz but had to settle for third place at 3:24.
Gaps were so well established that there was only one change within the top 10 of the general classification. Hugh Carthy (EF Education-EasyPost) produced a strong 11th place to dislodge Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo) from ninth place.
Elsewhere, Vincenzo Nibali (Astana Qazaqastan) sealed fourth overall in his final Giro, while Pello Bilbao made it two in the top five for Bahrain Victorious.
Jan Hirt (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux) was the only other rider to finish within 10 minutes of Hindley in sixth, while Emanuel Buchmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Domenico Pozzovivo (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux) were the other members of the top 10 ahead of Carthy and Lopez.

Giro d'Italia classifications
Here's a rundown of all the ongoing competitions at the Giro d'Italia. Click here for a more comprehensive explainer, including minor competitions such as the intermediate sprints prize and the fighting spirit prize.
Maglia rosa – The pink jersey is worn by the overall race leader on the general classification who has completed the stages so far in the lowest accumulated time.
Maglia ciclamino – The cyclamen jersey is the points classification. Riders accrue points at one of the two intermediate sprints during stages and also at stage finishes, and the man with the most points leads the ranking.
Maglia azzurra – The blue jersey is the mountain classification. Points are handed out to the first riders over certain hills and climbs during the Giro, with the hardest mountains giving the most points. Once again, the man with the most points leads the ranking.
Maglia bianca – The white jersey is the best young rider classification. It works the same way as the maglia rosa, but only riders aged 25 or under are eligible to win.
