Chris Froome crossed the line in Rome to seal a momentous overall victory at the 2018 Giro d’Italia.
Obviously for any cyclist this is the dream - to have all three leaders jerseys in the space of 10 months. It's an incredible feeling.
“Just taking a step back and putting everything into perspective, just thinking about winning three Grand Tours consecutively - the Tour, the Vuelta and the Giro, it’s just an amazing feeling.
"It was great to be able to soak up the atmosphere here in Rome. The monuments, the crowds - it was a great atmosphere out on the road."
Asked where he realised what he'd achieved, Froome added: "I don't think it's quite sunk in yet. I'm sure it will over the next few days once I've had time to reflect. Obviously for any cyclist this is the dream - to have all three leaders jerseys in the space of 10 months. It's an incredible feeling.
"I've always been a little bit afraid of coming here and really targeting (the Giro) just because of the demands of the race. It's so different to any other race that exists. To be here in this position now and to have won the race - I can't quite believe it myself."
As a final note, Froome dedicated his sixth Grand Tour victory to his pregnant wife Michelle. He explained: "My wife has been at home battling a pregnancy. It's a different toughness altogether to get through that. We're really excited about the new addition to our family, it's going to be coming in August, so I dedicate this victory to her."
