May 29, 2016 (Torino, ITA) – It was royal process for Vincenzo Nibali (Ita) Astana Pro Team as he claimed his second Giro victory and fourth grand tour title. Nikias Arndt (Ger) Team Giant-Alpecin was awarded the final Stage 21 win from Cuneo to Torino 163km when a jury DSQ’d Giacomo Nizzolo (Ita) Trek-Segafredo. Nizzolo was denied his first grand tour stage victory for irregular sprinting but still took home the red Points Jersey.

“The entire stage was really emotional,” Nibali told reporters post-race. “When I saw all the fans ready to welcome me at the end, it was something that was indescribable. I looked at everyone because it was a moment I didn’t want to forget. These are great moments that I want to share with my family who left home last night in order to meet up with me.”

“There were days where things didn’t go well,” he admits. “It’s easy to judge things from behind a desk. I didn’t want to let people know that I was ill because I didn’t want to help my opponents, but now I will focus on getting my energy back.”
