Briton has been one of the best climbers at the Giro and is a future GC star
EF Education First’s Hugh Carthy spent a day in the young riders’ white jersey, while a fourth place on stage 15 to Como saw him move up to 14th place on GC.

Just nine minutes separate the top four young riders, all of whom look set to make a further impact on this year’s race.
