2015 Giro d’Italia Results – Where did the Aussies finish?

Dear Roulers,

This post took a lot longer to write than I thought.  In fact this could be the only list of its type on the WWW.  I had to fish through the individual stage results to figure out, who DNS and DNF amongst the Aussie contingent.

So to do a quick recap, the 2015 Giro started May 9 an finished three weeks later on Sunday, May 31.  The riders that finished completed a course of 3481km long averaging 165km a day.  It included:

  • six mountain finishes and three other testing days of climbing
  • six stages for the sprinters,
  • a 59.2km individual time trial, and
  • kicked off with a 17.6km team time trial.

Of the 196 riders that started only 163 finished.

The race was won by Alberto Contador (above in case you can’t recognise him) and the Lanterne Rouge, place 163, was Marco Coledan (Ita) of  Trek Racing, who finished 6:40:13 behind.

I wonder if Contador will be able to go the double given Chris Froome’s performance in this week’s  Critérium du Dauphiné.  I’m counting the days until the Tour de France.
