Technical Overview:
Another chance for the sprinters, and this time it is the easiest one. It is also the last clear chance for them, so they better take it. Nothing else to add, besides that there is a tricky left turn at 400m to go.

Image

What to expect:
Bunch sprint. Maybe the last one.

Welcome to the best stage in this Giro!
Gaviria ftw, although there is predicted massive rain in the finale...

The annual completely flat Po Valley stage. This one's is a bit hilly for my liking.

Rain? I'd forgotten that was even a thing. I guess that will add a little flavour to this stage.

Joe Dombrowski FTW.

The weather in this Giro has been unusually good compared to recent editions.

Pinot to out-sprint Greipel :D !

This one is the winner of the meh stage contest...bad...

I hope Gavendish wins it. He's a great story in this Giro, finally delivering the goodies at the highest level. Good for him.

Yawn...

2 good things about today's stage - it's only 167 km long and the weather forecast is for thunderstorms. If it's wet, it could be a day for the breakaway.

This one has a Bouhanni written all over it.



That is, someone to take out the bunch with a crazy move inside 400 m.

Hope not though.

I wonder if Lotto shouldn't just send someone in the break so they don't have to work.
If it rains, Greipel is even more at a disadvantage anyway.

Obvious Gav win is obvious today. Could potentially get interesting with the weather and the wind, but I won't hold my breath.
