Chaves makes history in comeback victory at Giro d’Italia

Mitchelton-Scott (Italy) - Press Release: Colombian Esteban Chaves has gone one better than his second place two days ago, with an emphatic and emotional solo win on stage 19 at the Giro d’Italia.

The victory is the first for Chaves in 12-months, following his win up Mt Etna on stage six at last year’s Giro but then subsequent illness that finished his season.

After stage wins in 2016 and 2018, today’s success makes the 29-year-old the first Colombian to win a stage at three different editions of the Italian Grand Tour.
