Giro d'Italia 2016: Stage 1 preview

Stage map and profile

The 2016 Giro starts with a flat time trial. At 9.8km, it’s unlikely to decide the race but it’s still a good opportunity for stealing seconds. Last year’s Tour stage 1, 4km longer than this, saw significant gaps between the leading contenders: Vincenzo Nibali, for example, took 18 seconds from Nairo Quintana.
