2013 Giro d'Italia, Stage 21 Results, Race Finish

Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) has won the 96th Giro d’Italia, the first Sicilian to do so. His Astana team celebrated victory on the road soon after the start of today’s final stage at Riese Pio Decimo. The stage and the Giro overall finished in the city of Brescia, in a bunch sprint won by Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma - QuickStep), who won the first stage, the last stage, and three stages in between, at the 2013 Giro d’Italia.

Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), Maglia Rosa:
"Today has been a day of many emotions. It’s like the final day of the Tour: a long 200km stage, it was spectacular for the crowds along the road, it was inexplicable, incredible, and a great pleasure for me and all of cycling."

"I keep records of my training data, but I’m not very methodical. I don’t count the kilometers: I’m not a maniac about these things. I just try to work well, day after day. And that’s how I rode the Giro: I took it day by day, giving my best, and in the end I have realized my dream."

"I have never stopped being the way I am. I’ve always been like this. I’ve tried to better myself in recent years as a rider, but my character hasn’t changed: I try to be open and courteous to people, even if its hard when you’re racing every day."

Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma – QuickStep), Stage winner and Maglia Rossa:
"I’m addicted to winning, its simple. Since I was a child, in everything I did, it wasn’t enough to be the best I could be, I had to be the best of everyone. Then, when you have a team around you, dedicated to you, you have to give 100%. I’m paid good money and I have to win so, if someone comes along and beats me, I go home and work harder and come back faster."

Carlos Betancur (AG2R La Mondiale), Maglia Bianca:
"Since I started my season in Argentina, it has been a very good year for me. I’ve had some of the best results of my career, and I hope this Maglia Bianca is the start of even better things in the future. Even so, Urán is a rider with a great future, a great climber and fast against the clock, so I think he’ll probably beat me to becoming the first Colombian to win the Giro."

Stefano Pirazzi (Bardiani Valvole CSF Inox), Maglia Azzurra:
"My goal before the Giro was to win the white jersey. Unfortunately I couldn’t, but I‘m proud of winning this Maglia Azzurra, and of wearing it all the way from Florence."

More tomorrow....
