They say the Giro d'Italia breeds chaos like no other Grand Tour. In any case, the km leg from Alghero to Olbia, flat save for a trio of fourth-category climbs, was meant to end in a bunch kick and the pink the jersey on the shoulders of one of the peloton's fastmen. And it only got bigger, as Bennett urged his lead-out man to crack on over race radio. As he did so, the riders who everyone had been talking about enacted a somewhat futile sprint for second place, Ewan getting there ahead of Andre Greipel Lotto Soudal and Giacomo Nizzolo Trek-Segafredo — all no doubt bitterly disappointed. It worked out — victory for the team, first professional victory for me, maglia rosa. I think I will need many weeks to take this victory in. It's unbelievable, really.

The 18 WorldTour teams are automatically invited to the Corsa Rosa meaning a total of 22 teams will ride the th edition of the Giro d'Italia. Missing out on a wild card invitation to the Giro d'Italia is a huge blow for Androni Giocattoli and Nippo-Vini Fantini and could affect their long term futures. Head of cycling at RCS Sport Mauro Vegni has often supported Italian cycling despite it loss of importance in recent years but made it clear that the commercial interests of RCS Sport come before any form of patriotism. RCS said the wild card places for the end of season Il Lombardia will be decided "after evaluating all the results of the teams that have requested participation at the race.

Like the other Grand Tours, the modern editions of the Giro d'Italia normally consist of 21 day-long segments stages over a 23 or 24 day period that includes two or three rest days. The rider with the lowest aggregate time is the leader of the general classification and wears the pink jersey. While the general classification gathers the most attention, stages wins are prestigious of themselves, and there are other contests held within the Giro: the points classification , the mountains classification for the climbers, young rider classification for the riders under the age of 25, and the team classification. The idea of the holding a bicycle race that navigated around Italy was first suggested when La Gazzetta dello Sport editor Tullo Morgagni sent a telegram to both the paper's owner, Emilio Costamagna, and cycling editor, Armando Cougnet, stating the need for an Italian tour. Since the organizers lacked the funds, 25, lire ,  needed to hold the race, they consulted Primo Bongrani, an accountant at the bank Cassa di Risparmio and friend of the three organizers. Bongrani proceeded to go around Italy asking for donations to help hold the race. In , there was no individual classification, instead there was only a team classification, which was won by Team Atala.
After a challenging couple of days, Tom Dumoulin laid his hands on the most important maglia rosa of the Giro d'Italia, the final one. Dumoulin put in a superb effort in the final time trial from Monza to Milan, to take second place on the stage and make up more than enough time to climb above Nairo Quintana in the overall standings. Dumoulin beat the Colombian by just 31 seconds with Vincenzo Nibali finishing third overall. An emotional Jos van Emden made it a doubly good day for the Dutch with the stage victory, just ahead of Dumoulin. The Grande Partenza will set things off in Sardinia on May 5 in Alghero with a lengthy km road race to Olbia and overall winner will be crowned three weeks later upon its conclusion following a flat 28km time trial to Milan on May
