Hindley turns the Giro d’Italia time trial from a showdown into a celebration

Sunday’s final round of the 2022 Giro d’Italia, the time trial around Verona looks set to be a battle of every second between Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) and Jay Hindley (Bora-Hansgrohe) after 20 stages close, tight and controlled. race. But everything changed dramatically in the final 3.5km of Stage 20 to the summit of the Marmolada, and now the 17.4km time trial should be Hindley’s crowning glory.

In 2020, the Australian lost the Giro d’Italia to Tao Geoghegan Hart in the Milan time trial, with the Brit 39 seconds behind in 15.7km. This time, Hindley will still have to race hard and carefully, but he is ahead of Carapaz by a significant margin of 1:25.
