Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) said he came to the Giro d'Italia to win a stage after returning from a nine-month ban for sparking last year's Tour de Pologne crash of Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-QuickStep). But the Dutchman will depart the Italian Grand Tour empty handed after his fourth top-10 finish in Verona on Friday.

"My Giro is over after today, I enjoyed the race feeling and the discussions," Groenewegen wrote on social media. "The feeling I need to win is back and I will start to prepare for the next goals, furthermore I want to thank my team who went for it every sprint."

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
