The last few days of the Giro were a whirlwind, with three big mountain stages in a row, but I've finally had a chance to go through all my photos for my final post from this year's race.
At Rifugio Panarotta, Arredondo zig-zagged his way to the line for his stage win.
Duarte and Deignan finished second and third on the stage.
Zardini was fifth on the stage, followed by De Gendt, Basso, and Cataldo.
Aru picked up three seconds on Quintana and Uran.
Rolland, Losada, and Hesjedal:
Evans finished more than a minute and a half down on Aru, Quintana, and Uran.
Samu after the finish, with mountain backdrop:
Arredondo on the podium:
As clouds rolled around the mountaintop during the stage 19 cronoscalata on Monte Grappa, the massive First World War ossuary appeared and disappeared intermittently in the background of the finish line.
Adam Hansen had picked up a beer somewhere along the route, and he handed it to his soigneur after crossing the finish line.
Quintana on the podium:
At Monte Zoncolan, as usual, the tifosi covered the steep slopes along the last kilometer of the course.
Mick Rogers wins the stage:
Roche and Bookwalter, who were in the break with Rogers, finsihed fourth and fifth on the stage.
Cataldo, ninth on the stage:
Edoardo Zardini patted Maxim Belkov on the back after they finished together, fifteenth and sixteenth on the stage.
Together with Quintana, Uran gained 15-20 seconds on the other GC guys.
Rogers and Quintana on the miniature podium stage used at "Lo Zonky" and other mountaintop finishes with limited space:
Quintana's usually serious demeanor gave way to smiles at the Zoncolan press conference.
