Historic Grand Tour podium for ORICA-GreenEDGE & Esteban Chaves at Giro d'Italia

 
     
 

An incredible three weeks of racing and excitement came to a close at the Giro d’Italia today with Colombian Esteban Chaves finishing in second place overall.

The result gives ORICA-GreenEDGE, Australia's first and only WorldTour team, its best result and first ever general classification podium in a Grand Tour.

26-year-old Chaves brilliantly won the mountainous Queen stage to put himself into contention and followed up by taking the race leader's pink jersey on stage 19 before battling hard against race winner Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) on the penultimate day to seal the spectacular second place.

“I have learnt that dreams can come true,” said the smiling Chaves. “If you keep working and never give up then your dreams can come true. That is what myself and ORICA-GreenEDGE are going to continue doing.”
