Race Report: The surprises of the 2015 Giro d’Italia continued in the final stage as Iljo Keisse won in Milan from Luke Durbridge in a two-man break. The pink jersey of Alberto Contador crossed the line safely in the bunch to seal his overall victory. Giro done, Tour next.

GIRO Roadside: FINESTRE!

Giro'15 St.20: There's only one place to watch this penultimate stage of the 2015 Giro d'Italia - and that's on the spiralling slopes of the Colle della Finestre. Ed & Martin battled closed roads and the long way 'round, but made it to the top of one of cycling's most epic climbs.

Giro’15 St.20: Aru Wins In Sestriere, Contador Stays Pink!

Race Report: If you're going to have a bad day, you might as well have it when the Giro is all but won. Alberto Contador proved that he has a champion's head as well as heart and brains, hanging tough through a crisis on the Colle delle Finestre. Fabio Aru gave it everything but came up a good two minutes short. The Giro is won!

Giro Roadside St. 19: To Cervinia!

And to think, this morning started so well... We've been in them all; the hotel from The Shining, leaks, no heating, no hot water, no breakfast, no wi-fi... But last night... "Majestic" by name, majestic by nature, back to a time when hotel staff didn't wear Korn T-shirts and call you; 'mate.'

Colle della FINESTRE: The PEZ Preview

The Giro has saved the best for last as the race tackles the truly epic Colle della Finestre as the final stage for glory for this year's GC battle. Contador has the race sewn up but a lot can happen on a massive climb of 18km that throws in 8km of dirt road and steep pitches. I first rode this climb in 2005, and it's been on my list of Top Rides ever since.

Giro’15: Aru Grabs Glory In Alps!

Stage 19 Race report: After a couple of bad days, when Alberto Contador looked around and saw just how much Fabio Aru was suffering, the young Sardinian romped away in the last few kilometers to win a brutal stage. For Aru the day's spoils, and up a place overall, but Alberto Contador was as comfortable as could be on a lightning-fast ride to Cervinia.

GIRO Roadside St.18: To Verbania!

Ed and Martin are into the 'Giro Groove' and have this bike race chasing down to a fine art. They've worked out the best places to see the race, eat pizza & drink beer, plus find the very important coffee and a read of the Gazzetta. Day 3 of their Giro Adventure rolls to Verbania!

Giro’15 St.18: Phil And The Pistol Profit!

Race Report: Just when you thought this Giro couldn’t provide another high-octane thrill ride, the first-category Monte Ologno, fuelled a further chaotic stage. We had it all: breakaways, chases, races within races, dropped chains and thrown-down gauntlets. The maglia rosa on the charge. It was perfect.
