João Almeida and Ben Swift win Challenge of the Stars

Giro d’Italia revelation João Almeida (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) and Ben Swift (Ineos Grenadiers) have come out on top in the Challenge of the Stars. The online event, organized by Giro d’Italia organisers, RCS Sport, saw riders grouped together in groups of climbers or sprinters before competing head-to-head on the Bkool online platform.

Created by Giro d’Italia organiser RCS Sport, and first held during the spring COVID-19 lockdown in May, the head-to-head knockout format includes two races: one for climbers on the slopes of the virtual Stelvio and one for the sprinters on the virtual roads of the Tuscan countryside.
