Damiano Caruso (Bahrain Victorious) has taken the victory of the 20th stage of the Giro d'Italia while Egan Bernal remained in Pink.

The last stage ahead of the closing individual time trial of the Corsa Rosa was 164 kilometres and took the peloton between Verbania and Valle Spluga-Alpe Motta and featured three climbs of the first category. Caruso followed the move of his teammate Pello Bilbao and joined the attack of the DSM team with Romain Bardet on the Passo San Bernardino, the first of the climbs.

Meanwhile, Ineos Grenadiers took the front of the Maglia Rosa group, in which Simon Yates was also part of, to make sure that Egan Bernal could maintain the lead of the General Classification. Caruso went on his own with two kilometres to go and took the victory of the last mountain stage of the 2021 edition of the race.

Bernal crossed the finish line 24 seconds after and goes to the last stage of the race with an advantage of one minute and 59 seconds over the Italian of Bahrain Victorious. Yates crossed the finish line 51 seconds behind the winner of the day and maintains the third position in the overall classification.
