The 2022 Giro d'Italia is firmly into a rhythm as the final week approaches and the top contenders emerge from the pack, aiming to extend their advantage.


Richard Carapaz is no stranger to leading from the front. The 2019 champion boasts a slender advantage over Australian Jai Hindley going into the remainder of the Grand Tour following the final rest day.

A grand total of 10 British riders entered the event but none have cracked into the top 15 with just six stages left to make an impact. Hugh Carthy and Simon Yates are the best-performing UK stars so far, but they're well out of range to threaten the top order.

This year's event does not feature a clutch of big names, including 2020 champion Tao Geoghegan Hart, who is missing through illness and reigning champion Egan Bernal, who won't feature due to injury. The door is wide open for a brand new champion, but who will seize advantage of the depleted field?
