Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) is heading into the Giro d’Italia buoyed by his form this year – including a show of climbing power on the Poggio at Milan-San Remo – and as a result the sprinter will be looking to hold on longer when the road ascends to capatilize on more opportunities to turn his sprint speed into stage victories.

Ewan has already won three stages at the Giro d’Italia, two in 2019 and one in 2017, and this year the race marks the start of his effort to take a stage victory at all three Grand Tours in 2021. The 26-year-old has only had one win so far this year, stage 7 of the UAE Tour, though even when off the top step has delivered some impressive performances, most notably at Milan-San Remo.
