Chris Froome Finishes 21st In Giro d’Italia Opener

The first day of the 101st Giro d’Italia came to a close earlier, and it was a dramatic opener to say the least.

The 9.7km individual time trial, in Jerusalem, was won by defending Giro champion Tom Dumoulin in a time of 12 minutes 02 seconds, followed by Belgians Rohan Dennis and Victor Campenaerts in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

However, a bandaged Chris Froome, who was perhaps hindered by his crash in practice, finished 37 seconds back in 21st place.
