Giro Dream Comes True: Jai Hindley Wins First Grand Tour for BORA-hansgrohe

BORA-hansgrohe Team (Italy) - Press Release: The Giro concluded with a 17.4 km individual time trial in Verona, starting initially on flat terrain, then continuing over a 4.5 km long and 5 per cent steep climb before the riders then tackled the fast and technically demanding descent to the finish right in front of the old amphitheatre in Verona. Jai Hindley, who claimed the pink jersey in spectacular fashion on yesterday's stage, took to the course today with a 1:25 minute cushion and crossed the finish line in a time of 23:55 minutes, with the day's win going to M. Sobrero. With this performance, Jai became the first Australian to win the Giro. This is his greatest win so far in his career and at the same time the first Grand Tour victory for BORA - hansgrohe. The team from Raubling concluded the Giro very successfully with Emanuel Buchmann's 7th place in GC, Lennard Kämna's victory atop Mount Etna on stage 4 and Jai Hindley's win on the Blockhaus stage as well as his overall victory. Thanks to the strong performance and close cooperation of the whole team, BORA - hansgrohe was able to realise the long-awaited goal of a Grand Tour victory today.
