Galetti Again but with a Challenge

Defending champion Luigi Ganna won his second Giro d'Italia but not without a battle. Second place Giovanni Rossignoli held the early lead but faded under Galetti's consistent stage finishes. Luigi Ganna rode into the finishing City of Rome for his second consecutive Giro victory.
