Eleven of the sixteen stages so far at this Giro d’Italia have been won by first time grand tour stage winners.
Some – Egan Bernal, Giacomo Nizzolo – have not been much of a surprise. But some certainly have, and yet there have been days when the stage winner has been overshadowed by the GC battle.
In this episode of Kilometre 0 we revisit their stages with some of the winners, including Joe Dombrowski, Taco van der Hoorn and Victor Lafay. And we hear from a rider agent, Gary McQuaid, about the value of a stage win in a Grand Tour.
