The first Ecuadorian to win a Grand Tour

Carapaz donned the pink jersey after the Courmayeur stage, defended it throughout the mountains and even the final TT. The 26-year-old Movistar rider surprised everyone with his flawless performance and deservedly got his name on the spiral trophy.

“It’s something incredible to say now, that I am the winner of a Grand Tour, the Giro d’Italia. When I left my country, they didn’t believe in a boy who was going to the Giro d’Italia. I think they didn’t know about it until day four when I won my first stage. Then it began to resonate more.”

“I can’t imagine how the country is now. I’ve been concentrating on the Giro. I can’t imagine. But there are compatriots who are euphoric, who share my win, who resonate with this. My country must be the same.”

The favourite of the race, Primož Roglič, faded in the last week, but was content with finishing third in the end, behind Carapaz and Vincenzo Nibali.

“I had a lot of problems, and like I said, I didn’t feel great after stage 14 any more,” Roglič admitted. “So at the end, with all the problems I had, it’s just a win to finish on the podium in Verona.”
