The first real test of the 88th Giro d'Italia is Sunday's 45km individual time trial from Lamporecchio-Firenze. The chrono heads east along the Arno River valley towards Firenze, then climbs up amid the vinyards and olive trees of Monte Albano, gaining 300m. in 6km. Over the top, there's a fast, wide open 10km descent to Poggio a Caiano and then a straight shot back to Firenze and the finish on Viale Lincoln.
