Dumoulin honored but still humble after Giro d’Italia victory.

Thumbnail Credit (cyclingnews.com) (Photo: Tim de Waele): Tom Dumoulin with the Giro d'Italia trophy (Tim de Waele/TDWSport.com)Thumb Overlay."Tom Dumoulin made history by becoming the first Dutchman to win the Giro d’Italia but just as he did when under attack from Nairo Quintana and Vincenzo Nibali in the final mountain stages, he stayed calm and collected.

He was looking forward to a celebratory barbecue rather than thinking about his next Grand Tour goal.

He wants to keep his feet on the ground rather than become a hero when he returns to the Netherlands and perhaps goes on to target the Tour de France."

8 talking points from a dramatic final ‘week’ of the 2017 Giro d’Italia.

"'Toilet-gate' was one of the most bizarre scenes we’ve seen in a bike race.

When Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) pulled over to the side of the road late on stage 16 and took off his helmet and jersey, it was clear something was up.

When the Dutchman clambered off the road and pulled down his knicks, it was clear the camera should probably be turned away immediately."

Can Dumoulin hold his nerve and win the Giro d’Italia?

"‘Fino alla fine’ – Right to the very end.

When race director Mauro Vegni designed the route of the 100th edition of the Giro d’Italia, he perhaps hoped for a close race and thrilling finale in Milan.

But there has never been a similar finish to the corsa rosa, with five riders fighting for the final three podium places and all of them with a realistic chance of winning the maglia rosa if their rivals suffer a bad day, mess up a corner or even crash."

The race doesn’t favor the pure power guys as much as the demanding stage 10 did, insofar as everyone will benefit from the easy profile, but the handling skills required to maximize the effort in the many turns will matter a lot too.
