Giro d'Italia 2019, stage 21 time trial – live updates

Ok folks, so as mentioned below the slowest riders in the general classification have already ridden their time trials, with Sho Hatsuyama (Nippo-Vini Fantini-Faizane) more or less securing his virtual maglia nera ​– the black jersey that used to be handed to the slowest rider in the race, but was ditched after extreme measures were taken to ensure last place on general classification. Anyway, that’s not the real story of the day, but instead the big news is that pre-stage favourite Victor Campenaerts (Lotto-Soudal) set the quickest time of the day before, just minutes later, Chad Haga (Sunweb) overhauled the Belgian. The US rider was 1min 3sec slower than the world hour record holder during the stage nine time trial to San Marino so that is some turnaround and will be devastating news for Campenaerts .
