The 102nd edition has been a hugely exciting and successful Giro d’Italia for fizik riders, with overall victory for Richard Carapaz of Movistar Team.

The three-week race was very tightly competed and the General Classification was impossible to call right down to the last days.

As well as the GC victory there were two stage wins for Richard Carapaz. The Ecuadorian climber’s superb efforts enough to carry him to victory in his Infinito R1 Movistar Team shoes and Antares 00 saddle.

Carapaz won the 228km Stage 4 by brilliantly pulling away from a group of strong breakaway riders to hold off one of the world’s most renowned sprinters, matching his 2018 Giro stage win. Then, just a few days before his 26th birthday, he claimed Stage 14 with a brilliant solo ride, attacking on the Colle San Carlo, showing a brave descent then soloing up the final climb to Courmayeur. It was a ride that took him into the overall lead and brought the world’s attention to the young Colombian’s talent.

An amazing spectacle, thrilling from the very first stage, through the mountains and right to the closing time trial in Verona.

Congratulations to Richard and thanks to all our riders for their enormous efforts and delivering such a great result!
