Breaking: Chris Froome wins Giro d’Italia 2018!

Froome giro d'italia 2018

 

Team Sky’s champion Chris Froome has just become the third rider in the cycling history to have ever won three consecutive Grand Tours after claiming this season’s Giro d’Italia in epic final stage which ended an hour ago in Rome, Italy.

 

Froome, 33, beat Briton Simon Yates after leading the race in pink jersey for several stages until Four-time Tour de France winner stole his position in an impressive performance on stage 19 and 20.

 

Froome was able to finish today’s final stage 46 seconds ahead of defending champ Tom Dumoulin in the overall classification.

 

“For any cyclist this is the dream to have all three leaders’ jerseys in the 10 months. To have finally won this race, I can’t quite believe it myself,” Froome told Eurosport a while ago.

 

Simon Yates on the other hand, who led the tour after claiming three stage victories, finished 22nd in the overall classification as Ireland’s Sam Bennett grabbed final stage’s win to seal three stage wins on his own.
