It's the day before the Giro starts and there is still no thread up for stage 1 I'm not gonna make all of them guys c'mon...Stage 1: Torino – Torino 8.6 km ITT
Saturday, May 8th, 14.00 CEST
The 2021 Giro d'Italia starts with a short individual time trial, as it often did lately. This year the Grande Partenza is in Turin, like just 10 years ago (but that time it was a team TT). The stage starts in front of the Royal Palace and goes mostly along the Po river, crossing it after the intermediate sprint, which comes at km 3.8. The crossing is pretty much the only technical part of the route, as all the rest is made of long and straight roads. A time trial for pure specialists, but being this short it will not make huge gaps.
What to expect:
Small differences between the GC guys and a heavyweight to wear pink. Maybe one from the region…
La Mole Antonelliana, Torino
