The 2018 Giro d'Italia had just about everything, with dramatic leadership changes, amazing summit finishes, and probably the greatest solo stage win in cycling history.

From the start the race was billed as a showdown between Tom Dumoulin and Chris Froome, two of the biggest hitters in Grand Tour cycling. But Mitchelton-Scott's Simon Yates came into the race in terrific form. The balance of the route was challenging but varied, the scenery was spectacular, and there was so many twists and turns it was hard to keep track.
