STAGE 1: Apeldoorn – Apeldoorn 9.8 km ITT

Stage start: 13.45 CET, 6 May




Technical Overview:
The 99th Giro opens with an individual prologue (it is not formally a prologue though, being over 8 km) just under 10 km long. It is completely flat and it features a few long straights, where the specialists will be able to exploit their power. The only slightly technical part is in the middle, between 6 and 3 km to go. The final 2 km feature two pretty serious bends that are virtually the only chance for riders to **** up.




What to expect:
It's a prologue for pure specialists. Gaps could be significant between them and pure climbers. The winner will make it under 11'.

Thank the gods it's not an TTT this year, now if only the vuelta can get rid off that cancer.

In all seriousness when do the mountains start? :p

Dumoulin wins it.

Cancellara to win the stage, a random Sputnik to finish in the top 5, probably Vorobyev or Ovechkin.
 
1Cancellara, 2Dumoulin, van Emden and Vorobyev 3-4, Küng still missing something after his mononucleosis. But maybe he will be in shape in right time like Alaphilippe. Not sure that this course suits Jungels perfectly, don't think he will end in top-3

I will pick Tom Dumoulin, because he is at home, but it should be very close with Cancellara
And for 3rd place, my joker is Alexandre Geniez ;)
