The hell are you waiting for, people?
Eshnar said:STAGE 1: Apeldoorn – Apeldoorn 9.8 km ITT
Stage start: 13.45 CET, 6 May
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'.
