VIDEO: Highlights of stage 21 of 2024 Giro d'Italia as Tim Merlier's third week brings Grand Tour to a thrilling conclusion

The 2024 Giro d'Italia will mostly be remembered for the dominance of Tadej Pogacar in the fight for the Maglia Rosa but there were also a number of standout sprint performances, just as was the case on the final stage in Rome.

After all the traditional procession and celebration of the final stage of a Grand Tour, the racing really began once the riders reached the Rome street circuit. With 9km to go, pre-stage favourite Jonathan Milan was the victim of an ill-timed mechanical, leaving the Maglia Ciclamino right at the back of the convoy of cars. The pace wasn't relenting at the front either, leaving Milan a tough task to get back to the front of the race before the sprint. In the end he managed it but didn't quite have enough gas left in the tank to deny Tim Merlier a third stage win of this Grand Tour.
