Congratulations at :bowdown:Dumoulin :NED he deserved the win!!! 

Nibali  3rd (and only Italian stage win) not  much for Italy, but Bravo for what he did :yes

Other two Italians in Top 10 final ranking: Pozzovivo #6 and formolo #10

 

We saw a great edition #100 of Giro, thanks at many cyclists that fight every day (sometimes from the start of the stages.....) :clap:

Now Dutch media is getting filled with people and newspapers saying "yeah but Dumoulin isn't the first Dutch Giro winner, Marianne Vos already won the women's Giro!!!" :facepalm:

 

One of the biggest newspapers even had a 'quote' from Vos as headline: "Sorry Tom, but I was the first Dutch Giro winner", which resulted in Vos going to Twitter very quickly to publicly say she never said something like that and she considers Dumoulin the first Dutch Giro winner like everyone else :d (because the women's Giro is not actually a Grand Tour, it's of course a nice race to win but it's merely a normal stage race, I believe only a week or so and with way shorter stages)
