Stage 21 May the 27th 2018 - It may surprise you to know that Rome has only been the Capital of a unified Italy since 1870. Even more surprising is that the Giro has only finished there on 3 previous occassions.
After a hellish final few stages in the mountains the race's remaining riders get to ride around the tourist hotspots of ancient and modern Rome on an 11 lap - lap of honour. We predict a sprint finish but given the nature of the Giro d'Italia who that might consist of is anyone's guess?
This beautiful Rosso Porpora (Red-Purple) jersey is the colour par excellence of the imperial age and the modern day cycling gladiators who do battle on the streets of Rome on the last Sunday in May all deserve to wear it as the 2018 edition of the Giro shows no sign of softening up.
The jersey features a tone on tone abstract image of the race route and selected landmarks, as well as subtle Giro branding.
