Giro d'Italia stage 21 - As it happened

Jai Hindley (Bora-Hansgrohe) placed inside the top 20 on the final day of racing in Verona and secured the overall 2022 Giro d'Italia title on Sunday. He held off Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers), who was 10th on stage 21, while Mikel Landa (Bahrain Victorious) claimed the final GC spot on the podium. 

Meanwhile, the final day of racing in the Verona time trial was dominated by Matteo Sobrero (BikeExchange-Jayco), who claimed his first Grand Tour victory. The 25-year-old Italian time trial national champion completed the 17.4km course, which featured a 4.5km mid-way climb, in 22:24. 

Only two riders were able to get within a minute of Sobrero, with Thymen Arensman (DSM) placing second on the stage at 22 seconds and Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) taking the final podium spot at 39 seconds. 

When the 26-year-old Hindley completed his stage 21 ride into Verona’s famous amphitheatre, he had not only won the first Grand Tour of his career, but he also took the first for his team, Bora-Hansgrohe, and the first Giro for his country, Australia.

Giro d'Italia History

Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) earned the maglia rosa after 21 days of racing the 2021 Grand Tour. He covered the 3,479.9 kilometres just one minute 29 seconds ahead of Damiano Caruso (Bahrain Victorious) who finished second overall. Third place was secured by Adam Yates (Team BikeExchange), 4:15 behind the Colombian rider.

The tradition of marking the GC leader with a pink jersey was recognised last year with the 90th anniversary of the iconic prize. The maglia rosa was introduced in 1931 by Armando Cougnet, a journalist at La Gazzetta dello Sport, who had created the Giro d'Italia 20 years earlier. The idea was to make the race leader easier to identify in the peloton by race officials and the roadside fans. 

Eddy Merckx holds the record of 78 days in the pink jersey, followed by Francesco Moser with 57 and Gino Bartali with 50. Legendary riders who have worn the maglia rosa over the years include Gino Bartali, Fausto Coppi, Charly Gaul, Felice Gimondi, Eddy Merckx, Francesco Moser, Bernard Hinault, Laurent Fignon, Marco Pantani and others.
