Giro d’Italia stage 15: Tao Geoghegan Hart wins as João Almedia limits losses to hold pink jersey

British rider Tao Geoghegan Hart kept Team Ineos Grenadiers’ success rolling at this 2020 Giro d’Italia, winning stage 15 from an elite group atop the climb to Piancavallo.

Geoghegan Hart was one of three riders to survive the relentless pace on the category 1 climb, and he sprinted past Sunweb duo Jai Hindley and Wilco Kelderman to take the stage victory, bringing Ineos Grenadiers its sixth stage win at this year’s Giro.

“I’ve only won a few races in my career so this is something incredible to me,” Geoghegan Hart said. “For me, crossing the line first is something truly incredible.”

The British rider dedicated the victory — his first in a grand tour — to the team’s late sport director Nicolas Portal, who died earlier this year at the age of 40.
