Richie Porte’s memorable Giro d’Italia moments – ending a Grand Tour career where it all began

An illness-forced abandon on stage 19 may not have been the ending to 13 years of Grand Tour racing that Richie Porte was looking for at the 2022 Giro d’Italia, but as the 37 year-old said last week “you just never know what is going to happen in the Giro”.

The Australian knows all too well about the highs and lows of the Italian Grand Tour. He slipped on the pink jersey during his race debut in 2010 and ended in white, then helped Alberto Contador to victory the next year only to later have a cross put through that result. It is also an understatement to call it a challenging run in 2015, when he got his first and only chance to chase the maglia rosa in earnest.
