One-day races and Classics. Known for his time-trialing ability, Dumoulin excelled in climbing and is now seen and viewed by many as a climbing specialist. In , he became the first male Dutch rider to win the Giro d'Italia and later that year, the World individual men's time trial Championships. Based on his recent performances in Grand Tours, Dumoulin is showing himself to be an elite general classification rider. In the Tour de France , he won two stages then finished 2nd to only Chris Froome on the final time trial.
At that point Dumoulin, sitting in a tent by the finish having completed his race 10 minutes earlier, was finally able to overcome his nerves and smile. The die was cast soon after the start on the Monza motor racing circuit, with Dumoulin 31 seconds faster than Quintana at the first time check after 8. That suggested he would take the final pink jersey, but not by a great deal; nine kilometres later, on the outskirts of Milan at Sesto San Giovanni, Quintana was timed one minute slower, his lead lost but by no means conclusively. The maths was simple; they all needed to gain between five and six minutes on Dumoulin. But here it proved impossible.
Tom Dumoulin won the th edition of the Giro d'Italia in sensational style on Sunday to make history as the first Dutch winner of the three-week Italian race.

Tom Dumoulin held out a hand to Nairo Quintana after the two prepared to warm down on the rollers in the podium area immediately after the stage. Although the Colombian shook hands briefly, there was a distinct lack of respect and sportsmanship between the two after they had attacked each other and then refused to work together in the final kilometres of the km stage through the Dolomites to Ortisei. Dumoulin was angry that Quintana and Vincenzo Nibali had formed a pact to try to stop him winning the Giro d'Italia. After chasing them down over the top of the Passo Gardena, he then responded to Quintana's brief attacks on the final Pontives climb near the finish. When Nibali and Quintana refused to help him chase Thibaut Pinot, Domenico Pozzovivo and Ilnur Zakarin, he let them go clear; pulling back precious seconds and allowing them become threats for the podium places. I really hope that riding like this they will lose their podium spot in Milan, that would be really nice, and I would be really happy.
While Quintana moved within 31 seconds of the race summit, Nibali also rose to third place at after a day of drama in the high Alps. With the likes of Nibali, Quintana and Zakarin all raising the tempo while Dumoulin struggled behind, questions were asked whether the riders broke the unwritten rules of cycling by failing to afford the pink jersey the respect it deserved. Billed as the queen stage of the race, the km stage from Rovetta to Bormio featured the fearsome Passo del Mortirolo and an unprecedented dual ascent of the legendary Stelvio. A large break formed after a fast flat opening quarter of the race before Spaniard Luis Leon Sanchez crested the summit of the "easy" side of the Mortirolo to pick up the Cima Scarponi in memory of his late Astana team-mate Michele Scarponi, the Italian veteran who was killed last month after a training accident. It was a showing of fairplay that many felt was not replicated later in the stage. Landa, whose own GC hopes were ended in Stage 9 following the controversial crash involving the police motorcycle at the foot of Blockhaus, was the last man standing from a large break of 26 riders which formed on the Mortirolo.
Instead, their lasting memory of the race will come from stage 16, when Dumoulin had to engage in a frantic chase after pulling off his pink jersey, dropping his shorts, and running down a roadside bank for surely the most famous natural break in the history of sport. Speaking to Dutch broadcaster NPO2 , Dumoulin said that he had been working with doctors to try and work out why he suffered such stomach trouble in Italy, but that they still had not found a reason for his problems. Despite attending the route presentation on Wednesday, Dumoulin is yet to announce whether he will be defending his pink jersey in , or whether he will look to challenge of the Tour de France next season. A strong time triallist, Dumoulin might not like the look of a Tour de France which features only 31km of individual time trialling, although the Giro includes only a little more with 44km of riding against the clock.
