Across a thrilling three weeks, from the coast of Emilia Romagna to the peaks of the Dolomites, the Giro d’Italia revealed again why it is one of cycling’s most beloved – and beautiful – races.

The race was book-ended by time-trial victories from Filippo Ganna, and across the three weeks showcased a stunning return to form for Egan Bernal, a crowd-pleasing second place for underdog Italian Damiano Caruso, numerous breakthrough stage wins for riders, and the full spectrum of weather conditions.

The gaze of the cycling world will now move on to the Dauphine, Romandie, the Tour. But before we bid farewell to Italy, let’s take a behind-the-scenes look back at the Giro d’Italia.
