Ryder Hesjedal was the racer that made headlines on Sunday, winning the 2012 Giro d'Italia over longtime leader Joaquim Rodriguez thanks to a furious finish in the individual time trial in Milan. Hesjedal erased the 31-second lead that Rodriguez had held for much of the race's final stages, eventually finishing the race in 91:39:02, which bested Rodriguez's 91:39:18 by 16 seconds.
