The 2021 Giro d’Italia rolls out from Turin on Saturday with a 8.6km time trial in Turin but it’s not long before the focus turns to the sprinters in the race, with stage 2 to Novara and perhaps the hillier stage 3 to Canale providing the fastmen of the peloton with the chance of victory and even an opportunity to pull on the race leader's maglia rosa.

As you would expect, the caliber of the sprinters in the Giro d’Italia is relatively high with Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) the fastest rider on paper. The Australian is hoping to win stages in all three Grand Tours this year, and will be hoping to add to his win tally, which stands at just one victory this season.
