Giro d’Italia 2007 standings: results (general classification)

The 2007 Giro d’Italia was the 90th edition of the prestigious Italian cycling race. It took place from May 12 to June 3, 2007, covering a total distance of around 3,526.3 kilometers (2,190 miles) over 21 stages.

Di Luca secured the pink jersey (maglia rosa) by demonstrating consistent performance throughout the race, including stage wins and strong finishes in the mountain stages.
  3. Controversy: The 2007 Giro was not without controversy. Italian cyclist Alessandro Petacchi tested positive for doping. He tested positive for excessive salbutamol levels during the 2007 Giro d’Italia, leading to a doping controversy. Despite his medical exemption for asthma, his urine sample exceeded the allowed limit. The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) suspended him for a year, ruling he failed to exercise “utmost caution”. His results were stripped, and he was fired from Team Milram.
  4. Other Standout Performances: Besides Danilo Di Luca’s overall victory, other cyclists delivered remarkable performances throughout the race. Notably, Andy Schleck, a Luxembourger rider, made a strong impression in his debut Giro d’Italia, finishing second overall.

The 2007 Giro d’Italia provided thrilling racing action and showcased the endurance, skill, and determination of professional cyclists competing in one of the most prestigious events in the cycling calendar.
