Here’s my list – in reverse order – of the top 20 performances from this year’s Giro d’Italia. Whilst the riders from the top of the GC feature throughout, they won’t necessarily be ranked by their finishing position. My list picks out overachievers, eye-catchers and surprise packages, as well this year’s heroic support riders.
As part of a series with InsideThePeloton, I’ll be previewing my favourite selections for next Saturday’s World Championship Road Race in Doha. Caught between the race favourites (Cavendish, Sagan, and Greipel) and the longer shots (Groenewegen, Nizzolo, Demare) sits Colombian Fernando Gaviria priced at 12/1 with most bookmakers.
