Giro d'Italia 2020, stage 21: Cernusco sul Naviglio – Milano 15.7 km ITT

Lads, it's D day.

Can Rohan Dennis ride everyon outside the time limit? I think it's gonna be close.

Stage 21: Cernusco sul Naviglio – Milano 15.7 km ITT
Sunday, October 25th, 13:20 CEST





Technical Overview:
The last stage is again a short ITT, but unlike last year’s this one is pan flat, on long straights that will hugely favour specialists and cause some significant gaps. There is not much to talk about the route here. The stage starts in the outskirts of Milan and the only checkpoint will be at km 10.3, two thirds of the way and already in the city, which is a bit weird. The finish will be in front of the famous Duomo.



What to expect:
The last chance for everyone. Good gaps can still be made so the riders will have to give it their all. And then, finally, the podium and the trophy.


Duomo di Milano
 
Ganna hat trick

Feeling good for Tao but riders can conjure up insane TT's when it's all on the line and they're in the form of their life, so not going to write off Jai.

Wilco surely can't do 1'30 unless someone has a mare.

Almeida should nick 4th off Bilbao

Bilbao's odds of retaining his GC position are much better than Hindley's though, he's a solid time-trialist himself.
 
He is, but last TT Almeida put 1'20 into him in 30k. I think Almeida looked fresher today too (Bilbao's legs have to be running on pretty much empty at this point) and even if it's only 16k I think that's enough.
Last TT had some punchy climbs which (theoretically) favours Almeida, and Bilbao obviously is more experienced in dealing with the length of GTs. Agree that Almeida is still the favourite to take 4th on GC though.
