Giro: Jay Hindley, the first Australian to beat Giro de Italia –

Jay Hindley beat Jiro in front of the Verona Bulls. He was the first Australian to win the second big round of the cycling season.

The 21st and final stage, 17.4km time trial, went to Italian champion Matteo Chopro in order. In the finals, Hindley overtook Richard Carabas of Ecuador, the Olympic champion and event winner of 2019. Spain’s Michael Landa finished 3rd over Italy’s senior Nibali (37), the double winner of Zero who announced his retirement. End of season.

Good revenge

Hindley (26) finished 2nd in the 2020 edition. He lost the pink jersey on the last day of the Milan Time Trail. This time, the Australian was 1’25 seconds ahead of Carabao, enough to march in the arena of Verona, where Ecuador won in 2019. On the last lap, Hindley (15th) competed with Karabas (10th). He dropped only 7 seconds.

Australia have already won the Tour de France in 2011 through Cadel Evans in Verona. On the other hand, no “Aussie” has yet made his name in the Vuelta rankings for the 3rd biggest tour of the year. In Zero, Hindley is the second rider to make it to the finals from his country after the same Cadel Evans (3rd in 2013).
