Rein Taaramae (Katusha) won stage 20 of the Giro d’Italia, ahead of his early breakaway mates, John Darwin Atapuma (BMC Racing) and Joe Dombrowski (Cannondale). Most of the attention was on the battle for the pink leader’s jersey today, which in the end, Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) would pull on after a commanding performance. Being the final mountain stage of this year’s Giro d’Italia the organisers made sure the race would finish with a stern test. The peloton left Guillestre and began climbing even while in the neutral zone. When the flag dropped the race went directly up the category 1 Col de Vars. As expected attacks.
