Ineos-Grenadiers' Tao Geoghegan Hart has taken his first grand tour victory at the 15th stage of the Giro d'Italia.

The British rider was part of the leading trio that arrived together to the last kilometre of the demanding mountain finish of the 15th stage of the Italian race. The 25-year-old made his move in the last metres and took the victory of the day, which is not only his first in a grand tour but also his maiden WorldTour win.

"We came to the Giro with a clear plan as Geraint Thomas was in amazing shape," said Geoghegan Hart about the initial plan for the race of Ineos. "It didn’t go as we envisaged, especially because of the nature of his crash in the neutral zone [of stage 3] in Sicily, but we’re trying to make the most of what remains of this incredible year.

"All my teammates have been a great inspiration for me in this Giro. I’m not thinking of the GC. I just know that the big names in this race will try something spectacular in the final week. Everyone knows what a great influence Nico Portal had on the team and for me in particular: everyday we ride, we are remembering him."
