Chad Haga wins time trial before Richard Carapaz seals overall

Richard Carapaz became the first rider from Ecuador to win a grand tour when he claimed the Giro d’Italia title on Sunday.

The Movistar rider snatched the overall lead with a solo win in the 14th stage and retained the pink jersey after Sunday’s final stage, a 17-kilomtre individual time trial won by Chad Haga (Sunweb).

Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida), who was chasing a third title, ended up second overall with Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) taking third place.

The WorldTour continues at the Critérium du Dauphiné, which starts with the 142km run from Aurillac to Jussac on Sunday June 9, and concludes seven days later in Champéry.
