Chad Haga (Team Sunweb) won today’s final time trial stage of the Giro d’Italia, after the American rider set the fastest time of 22:07 along the 15.6 kilometer course in Verona.

Haga sat on the hot seat for more than two hours, while World Hour Record champion Victor Campenaerts (Lotto Soudal) fell four seconds shy to claim second place, followed by his teammate Thomas De Gendt who finished six-seconds behind to claim the final spot on the podium.

In the meantime, despite finishing 1:12 down from Haga’s time, it was enough for Richard Carapaz (Movistar) to seal the overall victory, making him the first Ecuadoran rider to win the Giro d’Italia, or any Grand Tour for that matter.

Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) put in a spirited effort to hold onto second place, while Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) bumped Mikel Landa (Movistar) off the final podium by eight seconds to take third place.
