Now, isn't this a great race? Well, it will be. For sure. That's why this race gets its thread before its time.
Look at this delicious startlist, and I don't mean that in a disgusting way:
Jonas Vingegaard is the winner of Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali 2021, before Mikkel Frølich Honoré and Nick Schultz. Mikkel Frølich Honoré is the winner of the final stage.
It's not finalized, yet, but there's van Wilder, Brenner, Vandenabeele, Vermaerke, Jorgenson, Vansevenant, Ayuso... and so on. So, a future Tour winner à la Cadel Evans will certainly be seen here!
1 A few hills. Not many.
1 Right, short and pancake-flat, it's a time trial.
2 Pretty hilly.
3 Mountains. For real. Monte Carpegna. Cielo del Pirata! Frontloaded, this stage.
4 There aren't many possibilities to ride in San Marino, so they had to do a few laps of the same. Looks nice, though. A bit like an ECG of a person who gets more excited at one point.
5 Well, this is a very steady ECG.
Yes, I know, I'm not good at stage descriptions. Toby will give you better ones.
Anyway, yes, I'm hyped about a youngster's race and that doesn't happen often!
