In late October Britain's Tao Geoghegan Hart came out on top of his unlikely duel with Australia's Jai Hindley to win the 103rd edition of the Giro d'Italia. It was a brilliant day for Ineos Grenadiers that also saw Italy's Filippo Ganna win his fourth and the team's seventh stage win of the race after dominating the final 15.7km time trial in Milan.
After 20 stages and over 85 hours in the saddle, nothing split the two top riders going into the decisive 15.7km individual time trial in Milan. But 25-year-old Geoghegan Hart stuck to the script and put in a superior effort against the clock after a nerve-wracking eighteen minutes decided the 3,360km three-week race.
London-born Geoghegan Hart became the first rider in the Giro's 111-year history to stand atop the final podium without once wearing the famous maglia rosa during the race. He was the fifth Ineos Grenadiers rider in a decade to win one of cycling's Grand Tours after compatriots Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas, and the Colombian Egan Bernal.
