Vincenzo Nibali 'would think twice' before stopping Giro d'Italia due to coronavirus concerns

  Vincenzo Nibali 'would think twice' before stopping Giro d'Italia due to coronavirus concerns Italian faces defining weekend doubleheaderAt times, the bike race seems almost incidental to this year's Giro, which is increasingly couching itself as a symbol of Italy's response to the coronavirus pandemic. EF Pro Cycling's request to end the Giro a week early was perceived in some quarters as an attack on the race – "Shameful," read one headline – and, ergo, a slight on Italy itself.

Only this time there was so much at stake for two Whichever of these two men took the victory would have been a worthy winner of this most unusual Giro . There was a time when it was possible that

Britain's Tao Geoghegan Hart came out on top of his unlikely duel with Australia's Jai Hindley to win the 103rd edition of the Giro d ' Italia on Sunday. A brilliant day for Ineos Grenadiers also saw Italy's Filippo Ganna win his fourth and the team's seventh stage win of the race after dominating the final

When Tao Geoghegan Hart overtook Jai Hindley on a spectacular closing time trial in the 2020 Giro d'Italia, he not only claimed the maglia rosa, but that single rung up the GC ladder netted the Ineos Grenadiers an extra €155,006 - the difference in prize money between first and second place in the individual standings - plus €20,000 in the young riders classification, €2,000 for the maglia rosa and €750 for the maglia bianca.

Ineos' haul also included €5,000 for winning the teams classification as well as five daily prizes as top team of the stage at €500 each.

Team Sunweb, taking second and third overall with Jai Hindley and Wilco Kelderman, respectively, were the next highest paid for the race, earning roughly €278,093. Their top earnings came from the €133,412 for second and €68,801 for third in the general classification, Hindley's stage win - worth €11,000 - and the young rider's classification and third place in the teams classification, among other results.

GENERAL CLASSIFICATION 1 – Tao Geoghegan Hart (Team Ineos Grenadiers) 2 – Jai Hindley (Team Sunweb) at 39″ 3 – Wilco Kelderman It was impossible for me to even think about winning the Giro when we started in Sicily. All of my career I have dreamt of being top 10 or top 5 in a race like this.

Tao Geoghegan Hart has become the fifth Briton to win a Grand Tour with victory in the Giro d ' Italia . The 25-year-old Londoner beat Australian Jai Hindley Geoghegan Hart pulled on the pink jersey for the first time on the final podium after the race came down to two riders who began the opening stage

Deceuninck-Quickstep, having João Almeida in the maglia rosa for 15 days at €2,000 a pop, took home about €145,507 in total. Almeida won €21,516 for fourth place overall and €6,000 for third best young rider. In all, the young Portuguese was responsible for two-thirds of his team's prize haul.

The next most valuable competition was the points classification, where every day in the maglia ciclamino earns a rider €750, and €10,000 to the overall winner. Thanks to this and the cash on the line for stage wins (€11,000 each), Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) earned €66,040 for his three weeks of racing.

Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), with one stage win, four second places and a day in the mountains classification, earned a respectable €45,243.

The Giro d'Italia gives extra incentives to riders to fight for the daily prizes, awarding five places for the most intermediate sprint points, three places for the most mountain points and three places for the most total points on the stage in addition to the 'fighting spirit' prize that is a combination of both sprint and mountain points - €300 per day. Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) took home the overall combativity prize of €4,000.

There is also a breakaway prize for most kilometres off the front - €100 per day - and at the end, Mattia Bais (Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec) won €4,800 for most time in the breakaway.

Gianni Savio certainly knows how to maximize profits, and along with Bais' prize, Simon Pellaud earned the intermediate sprint classification win - worth €8,000 - with Jhonathan Restrepo taking €1,000 for fifth place in the same rankings. The Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec team was best of the wildcards in 12th in the prize money earnings, with €24,607.
