The 100th Giro d’Italia crowned the race’s first ever Dutch winner as Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) took the title in a final-stage showdown against Nairo Quintana (Movistar).

A dramatic last week saw the lead of the race change twice as the top contenders had a major reshuffle across almost every stage. Dumoulin’s rivals threw everything at him and an upset stomach almost cost the Dutchman the race, but he stood strong through what was a very tough final few days.

It was one of the most memorable and exciting Grand Tours in recent times with the final outcome only revealed in the last kilometre of the race. The time difference? Just 31 seconds between Dumoulin and Quintana.

We hope you enjoy our final gallery from the 2017 Giro d’Italia, one that showcases a huge final week of racing and excitement.
