Tao Geoghegan Hart wins the Giro d’Italia

Tao Geoghegan Hart has become the fifth Briton to win a Grand Tour with victory in the Giro d’Italia.

Geoghegan Hart is a 25-year-old who grew up in Hackney in London. He is also a keen swimmer and aged 13 was part of a group of teenagers who swam across the English Channel.

He has ridden full-time on the top-tier World Tour since 2017, initially for Team Sky and staying with the team as they became Ineos.

This is Geoghegan Hart’s fourth appearances at a Grand Tour. He’s now the second British man to win the Giro.

The 25-year-old Londoner beat Australian Jai Hindley by 39 seconds in the 15.7-kilometre closing time trial in Milan after the pair went into the final stage level on time.

Geoghegan Hart was ahead of Hindley at every time check along the way, clocking a time of 18 minutes 19.40 seconds to deliver a remarkable win.
