Weather at Rome at 2:12 PM, local time: 29C (84F), sunny, with the wind from the south at 13 km/hr (8 mph). No rain is forecast.

The race: 150 riders began the 2018 Giro d'Italia's final stage at 2:07 PM, local time.

Sadly, Thibaut Pinot, who had been in third place, did not start the stage after suffering from dehydatrion and exhaustion in stage 20.

At the request of the riders, the final GC standings were fixed about a third into the stage, effectively neutralizing the stage. Time bonuses were cancelled. Chris Froome has won the 2018 Giro d'Italia. The fight was for the stage win.

Here's the organizer's race summary:

The British rider Chris Froome (Team Sky) won the 101st Giro d’Italia, wearing the last Maglia Rosa of race General Classification leader and rising the Trofeo Senza Fine. Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) and Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana Pro Team) finished second and third.

During today’s stage the commissaires panel, in accordance with the race directors, decided to neutralize the times after three laps had been completed. Time bonuses have been cancelled for Stage 21. Points were awarded as planned.

The Irish rider Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) won Stage 21, Roma-Roma of 115km. Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) and Jean-Pierre Drucker (BMC Racing Team) finished second and third.

Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the Giro winner Chris Froome said: “It’s great to soak up the atmosphere here in Rome. I was surely not disappointed by the crowd and the monuments. I need a bit of time to reflect but this race has been incredible. For any cyclist, it’s a dream to have all three Grand Tour leader’s jerseys. I’m still pinching myself. I can’t believe I’m here in the Maglia Rosa.”

The stage winner Sam Bennett said: “I don’t know how I managed to beat Elia Viviani. I suffered so much over the past few days in the mountains. But my team did a fantastic job to bring the last breakaway back today. It’s fantastic to have won three stages in the Giro but I’ll have to get up tomorrow and focus on further goals, possibly the Irish championship as I’d love to show the national colours on the world stage.”

And here's the report from stage winner Sam Bennett's Bora-hansgrohe team:

The final stage of the Giro d’Italia ended with another impressive stage win of BORA – hansgrohe sprinter Sam Bennett. The pace increased on the last two laps and on the final lap the reduced bunch was back together and the excepted bunch sprint was set up. BORA – hansgrohe did again a stellar job and brought Sam Bennett in a perfect position. The Irish sprinter increased the pace and overtook E. Viviani to take his third stage win in an impressive way. His third stage win completes a successful Grand Tour for the German Team.

The Stage
The final stage of the Giro d’Italia took place in the heart of the Italian capital. The peloton had to cover 10 loops of an 11.5km circuit through the streets of Rome.

The Team Tactics
The 21st stage favoured the sprinters in the peloton, and with Sam Bennett, who won two stages in this edition of the Giro d’Italia, the team wanted to go for the third stage victory with the fast Irish man.

The Race
After some discussions about the route the Jury decided to neutralise the first two laps, therefore it was a calm start in this final stage. In the third lap some riders, including BORA – hansgrohe rider Andreas Schillinger attacked and built a small gap over the main bunch. With 4 laps until the finish the race split in several groups, Andreas Schillinger still in the front of the race and his teammates were all together in the first group behind the breakaway. As expected the race was back together with 3km to go and the BORA - hansgrohe guys formed a strong lead out for their sprinter SamBennett. The Irish sprinter increased the pace and overtook E.Viviani to take his third stage win in an impressive way. His third stage win completes a successful Grand Tour for the German Team. BORA – hansgrohe finished this first Grand tour of the season with three stage victories and two riders in the top ten Overall ranking.

From the Finish Line
“Our goal was a top ten result in the overall ranking and one stage win, now we will leave this Giro d’Italia with two riders in the top ten, three stage victories and a plenty of podium results. We exceeded our goals, which makes me really happy and proud. The whole team worked the last couple of weeks perfectly together, the riders, the whole staff and the two sports director, Christian Pömer and Jens Zemke did a stellar job.” – Ralph Denk, Team Manager

 “I woke up not feeling so good today, my legs were tired and I wasn’t sure if I could go for the sprint. The race course was really difficult and I couldn’t take my hands off the bike due to the cobblestones during the race i felt better as the pace increased and once again it was a great team effort. The boys worked so hard for me, closed the gap and did a strong lead-out. Without them the victory wouldn’t have been possible.” – Sam Bennett

“An incredible stage, so many spectators at this historical surrounding. The course was so difficult; therefore the jury made the right decision to cut the laps. With a fully motivated team we wanted to bring Sam again in a good position and he did again a great sprint. So far it was our greatest Grand Tour.” Jens Zemke, sportlicher Leiter

Mikel Nieve

Mikel Nieve wins stage 20

Weather at the finish city of Cervinia at 2:10 PM, local time: 13C (55F), cloudy, with the wind from the south at 10 km/hr (6 mph). There is a small chance of showers during the afternoon.

The race: 151 riders began stage 20 at 10:18 AM.

Here's the organizer's stage report:

The Spanish rider Mikel Nieve (Mitchelton-Scott) won solo the 214km Stage 20 of the 101st Giro d’Italia, from Susa to Cervinia. Robert Gesink (Team Lotto NL-Jumbo) and Felix Grosschartner (Bora-Hansgrohe) finished second and third.

Chris Froome (Team Sky) is the race General Classification leader, wearing the Maglia Rosa.

Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Mikel Nieve said: “After what happened yesterday, it was very important for our team to make it up with a stage victory. Five stage wins are a lot! I couldn’t have dreamt of a better birthday.”

The race leader Chris Froome said: “When Dumoulin attacked, I wasn’t exactly worried but I wanted to stay in control of everything. This Giro is brutal, look at what happened to Pinot today. I sprinted to the finish line to make sure that I retained the Maglia Azzurra as much as the Maglia Rosa.”

Stage winner Mikel Nieve's Mitchelton-Scott team sent me this report:

2018 recruit Mikel Nieve has won his first race for Mitchelton-SCOTT to take the team’s tally to five stage wins at the 2018 Giro d’Italia. The Basque rider, who worked tirelessly for his leaders Simon Yates and Esteban Chaves in the first 19 days, tooks his first opportunity on stage 20 to win solo from the breakaway.

Finishing with fight:
With one final opportunity in the mountains before the ceremonial roll in Rome tomorrow, Mitchelton-SCOTT were determined to finish off the Giro d'Italia with fight, putting two strong climbers in a breakaway of 27. Nieve, Roman Kreuziger and their fellow escapees rode out to an advantage of five minutes on approach to the first climb.

Pushing the pace:
Kreuziger took responsibility for the pace of the breakaway on the first climb, dwindling the group down before swinging off and leaving eight survivors, including Nieve.

Going it alone:
With just over 30km remaining, and just Felix Grossschartner (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Gianluca Brambilla (Trek Factory Racing) for company, Nieve increased the pace and only Grossschartner could follow. A couple of minutes later, a second push was enough to snap the cord and Nieve drove himself in a solo position at the front of the race.

In a time trial down the descent and up the final climb, Nieve crossed the line two-minutes 17seconds ahead of second-placed Robert Gesink (LottoNL-Jumbo) as the GC battle played out further down the mountain.

Mikel Nieve:
“It has been a perfect day today, just the way I dreamed it and I am really happy for myself and for the team. After yesterday, it was important to bounce back and now we have to be happy with what we have achieved at the Giro. With five stage wins and so many days in the Maglia Rosa it has been a great Giro d’Italia for us and we have to enjoy the final day tomorrow now.

“I won my first stage at the Giro in 2011 and now after seven years, to win again is really important for me, to show I am still with the best riders, and also for the team and I am really happy.”

Here's the organizer's explanation of the 2018 Giro route:

The 101st edition of the Giro d’Italia – organized by RCS Sport / La Gazzetta dello Sport – is scheduled from 4 to 27 May 2018. This year the Corsa Rosa will tell many stories along its route, spanning history, culture and sport.

Chris Froome, through a video, announced his participation in the Corsa Rosa.

THE ROUTE
A Grand Tour will start outside the borders of Europe for the first time as, for the 13th time, the Corsa Rosa will begin outside of Italy, continuing the race’s process of internationalization and promoting the concept of ‘Made in Italy’ throughout the World.

This 101st edition, totalling 3,546.2km with 44,000 meters of vertical elevation, features two Individual Time Trials, seven low difficulty stages, six of medium difficulty, six high difficulty and a total of eight summit finishes.

BIG START – ISRAEL
On Friday 4 May, a 9.7km ITT in Jerusalem West will decide the first Maglia Rosa. A highly technical route, with numerous bends and small ascents and descents, this will be the Tappa Bartali, commemorating the Italian cyclist who was awarded the honour of ‘Righteous Among the Nations’ and whose name is engraved on the Wall of Honor in the Garden of the Righteous in the Yad Vashem Memorial in Jerusalem.

From Haifa to Tel Aviv, with the finish on the straight seafront after 167km, the second stage is set to suit the sprinters and will pass through Jaffa, an ancient city just outside of Tel Aviv.

The last stage in Israel from Be’er Sheva to Eilat on the Red Sea includes a designated Mountains competition climb on the Ramon Crater (at 40km wide, the largest crater in the world), and also features a finish suitable for sprinters. Eilat will be the southernmost point touched by the Giro d’Italia in its history.

FIRST WEEK – SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL ITALY
The first rest day for the Giro caravan on Monday 7 May sees a transfer to Sicily, which will host the next three stages. Stage four, from Catania to Caltagirone (191km), finishes at the top of the city after many undulations including a short uphill finale.

From Agrigento to Santa Ninfa (Valle del Belice), the 152km fifth stage presents another finale suited to the finisseurs. In its first part, the stage touches the Valle dei Templi and the Scala dei Turchi (Valley of the Temples and the Scale of the Turks) and passes close to Selinunte. In 2018, it will be 50 years after the earthquake that struck those areas on 14 January 1968. The first summit finish of the 2018 Giro will be on Mount Etna. The 163km stage from Caltanissetta features an undulating first section until Paternò, where it starts a 25km climb with an increasing gradient. Then comes the unprecedented climb to the Etna; from Ragalna, on a narrow road, through the parks and solidified lava flows, to reach the Astrophysical Observatory.

Sprinters will have new opportunities on the 7th stage from Pizzo to Praia a Mare, entirely along the Tyrrhenian coast.

On Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 May two uphill finishes make for a challenging weekend: Montevergine di Mercogliano and the Gran Sasso d’Italia (Campo Imperatore). The first, at 208km, starts from Praia a Mare, crosses the Cilento, passing by the beaches of Salerno, then climbs until the finish line in front of the Sanctuary. On the following day, a very long stage at 224km, will bring the riders from Pesco Sannita to Gran Sasso d’Italia, the Mountagne Pantani of this 101st edition. A seemingly endless climb of 45km, leading to the finish line, is punctuated only by a central section with a more gentle slope.

SECOND WEEK – THE CENTER AND THE NORTH-EAST
After the second rest day, in Abruzzo, the race restarts from Penne and heads north to Umbria, finishing at Gualdo Tadino. At 239km it’s the longest stage of the 2018 Giro, and features an undulating finale. A few kilometers after the stage start, the race will pass next to the remains of Hotel Rigopiano where on 18 January 2017 a major avalanche resulted in 29 fatalities and many more injuries.
Stage 11 from Assisi to Osimo is dedicated to the memory of Michele Scarponi. It’s characterised by medium to long climbs at the beginning and the famous ‘walls’ (Muri) of the Marche inland at the end, including the Filottrano Wall (Muro di Filottrano) with slopes up to 14% and finale in the medieval historic center of Osimo.

On Thursday 17 May, the sprinters should be the protagonists – although the circuit of the Tre Monti before the arrival could change the odds. It is a fairly flat stage that will start from Osimo and end in Imola with a finish in the motorsport race circuit.

Stage 13 will start from Ferrara and finish at Nervesa della Battaglia after 180km with the short climb of the Montello in the finale. 100 years after the hostilities ceased, the Giro’s route passes some significant sites of World War I.
Saturday 19 May witnesses a stage entirely in Friuli Venezia Giulia with finish on the “Monster” Zoncolan. It starts from San Vito al Tagliamento and, across 181km, presents no fewer than five Mountain Classification sections throughout its 4,400m of vertical elevation: the Monte di Ragogna with its steep slopes, the Avaglio ascent and then, in the last 45km, without a single meter of flat, Passo Duron, Sella Valcalda and Monte Zoncolan – from the toughest side, Ovaro.

Next, on Sunday 20, the Dolomites stage from Tolmezzo to Sappada with four Mountain Classification sections. The route presents opportunities, especially after Auronzo di Cadore where there will be placed two unprecedented climbs in the Comelico area, both with gradients above 10%. The finale at Sappada features a slight ascent.

THIRD WEEK – TRENTINO AND THE NORTH-WEST
Following the last rest day in Trento (Monday 21 May), is a 34.5km Individual Time Trial, ending in the city of Rovereto, home of the Campana dei Caduti (“Bell of the Fallen”, cast using the bronze from the cannons of the 19 nations that fought in World War I. This almost flat route for ITT specialists has expected average speeds of around 50kph.

The Wine Stage has become an unmissable appointment on recent editions of the Giro d’Italia. This year it will be an in-line stage in the territory of Franciacorta, starting from Riva del Garda and finishing in Iseo. It’s the last chance for the sprinters, before the final stage in Rome.

What follows are the three days with the last mountain stages that will probably decide the Giro… On Thursday 24, the stage from Abbiategrasso starts with a long and flat route until the final climb that leads to Prato Nevoso.

The following day’s stage on the Alpi Occidentali (Western Alps) hosts the Cima Coppi. It starts in Venaria Reale and features four long and challenging climbs including the Colle di Lys, the Colle delle Finestre – with a 9km gravel sector – and the arrival at Bardonecchia (Jaffreu) after a 7km climb with average gradient of 9%.

On Saturday 25 the last mountain stage packs 4,500 meters vertical elevation into just three climbs. Riders will move from Susa on a stage that’s flat in its first part but then faces the unprecedented Col Tsecore before a finale with the ascent of St Pantaléon and the last summit finish in Cervinia.

GREAT FINAL IN ROME
We transfer to the capital for the finale of this 101st edition of the Giro. The 11.8km circuit in the center of Rome is to be repeated 10 times. It takes in many historic sites along Via Nazionale, Via Sistina, Piazza del Popolo, Circo Massimo (Circus Maximus), and the Terme di Caracalla (Baths of Caracalla) before arriving at finish line at the Fori Imperiali (Imperial Fora) under the Colosseum
