Giulio Ciccone suggested his stage 15 win at the Giro d’Italia on Sunday is the best moment of his career, highlighted in the raw emotion he displayed during his post-race celebrations.

The Italian spent two stages in the yellow jersey at the Tour de France in 2019 as he led the GC on the sixth and seven days. Ciccone had also picked up two stage victories at the Giro before yesterday, and also won the 2019 mountains classification at the Italian Grand Tour.
