With only 4 stages remaining in the 88th Giro d'Italia, this stage could provide some surprises. After a short ride along the coastline, Stage 17 heads across the small, twisting roads of the Ligurian hinterlands which is perfect terrain for attacking whoever is wearing the Maglia Rosa. After 131km, there is a steep 7km climb up to Madonna del Coletta, then the long, gradual 30km ascent to the mountaintop finish in Limone Piemonte.
