Hello and welcome to our live coverage of stage 14 of the Giro d'Italia, a 34km time trial from Conegliano to Valdobbiandene.

We're just over 20 minutes away from the start, which will see Jonathan Dibben (Lotto Soudal) kick things off.

We'll see a number of strong time trialists head off in the first hour, including two potential stage winners in Victor Campenaerts and Rohan Dennis...

It's a rolling course today as you can see in the stage profile. However, there's a tough section early on as the riders tackle the Muro di Ca' del Poggio – a 1.1km wall at 12.3 per cent with sections reaching up to 19 per cent.

The first riders are off – Jonathan Dibben, ISN's Guy Sagiv and Cofidis man Marco Mathis.

Brändle is off now, as is Deceuninck-QuickStep sprinter Alvaro Hodeg.

Dowsett has just set off now, too. All on TT bikes, of course – the Muro might be steep, but it's not worth the time loss of using a road bike along the 6km of flat roads beforehand.

Brändle is the quickest so far over the top of the Muro. His time of 11:59 is 22 seconds faster than anyone else so far. Hodeg is the slowest at 13:18.

Dowsett is four seconds off his teammate over the top.

Meanwhile, Brändle – who has gone through the second check fastest, too – has passed Vini Zabù men Simone Bevilacqua and Matteo Spreafico, who are drafting one another quite egregiously...

Time for Campenaerts to start his effort now.

A bizarre crash for UAE Team Emirates sprinter Juan Sebastian Molano, who changes hand position heading into a corner and tries to take the apex too close, clipping the barriers on the inside and flying off his bike.

Dowsett just two seconds down at the second check! It'll be a battle to the line between the ISN duo.

Giulio Ciccone (Trek-Segafredo) is out of the race. He's suffering from bronchitis. A big blow for Vincenzo Nibali.

Campenaerts is second over the Muro. He's just one second behind Brändle.

Campenaerts catches his minute man, Mathias Le Turnier.

Dibben is the first man to finish with a time of 47:52.

Brändle fastest at the finish now with a time of 45:23. Now we wait for Dowsett.

Campenaerts is top at the second check now, 10 seconds up on Brändle.

Dowsett just misses out at the finish, six seconds down on his teammate.

Rohan Dennis (Ineos Grenadiers) set off a few minutes ago.

Dennis passes his minute man, Lorenzo Rota, after 5km. Meanwhile, Campenaerts has passed three men during his effort.

Josef Černy has smashed it at the first check. He's at 11:30, 29 seconds up on Brändle. Dennis will be through there soon.

Jan Tratnik (Bahrain McLaren), Mikkel Bjerg (UAE Team Emirates), Chad Haga (Team Sunweb) and Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) all set off in the next 15 minutes.

Dennis 11:08 over the climb. That's the new quickest time there by a further 22 seconds.

58:31 for Molano at the finish. He finished over 13 minutes down after his crash.

Campenaerts eight seconds up at the third checkpoint.

Bjerg sets off. Eight minutes until two-time stage winner Ganna starts.

An update on Ciccone from Trek-Segafredo:

Maglia ciclamino Arnaud Démare goes third fastest at the finish with a time of 47:27, over two minutes down on Brändle.

45:14 for Kamil Gradek at the finish. The Polish champion tops the leaderboard for now.

21:47 for Dennis at the second check. He's blown away Černy by 28 seconds there.

Campenaerts is the new fastest man at the finish. He's the first man under 45 minutes with a time of 44:46.

World champion and double stage winner Filippo Ganna has set off. Another victory for him today?

"You kind of have to treat it as three time trials – get to the climb, do the climb, do a time trial afterwards," says Alex Dowsett about the course.

Bjerg 34 seconds down on Dennis at the top of the climb. It's looking more and more like another intra-Ineos battle here.

Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) is off. He's a strong time trialist and good in the hills so it should be a good day for him.

Ganna is flying up the Muro. He's past minute man Jonathan Caicedo and two-minute man Giovanni Carboni as they head up the steep ramp.

Ganna is just 1.59 seconds up on Dennis at the top of the climb! Phew, it looks like a close one...

A look at Dennis out on the course. Nice backdrop – a massive Italian flag draped over someone's house.

He's faster still at the third checkpoint. 30:37 puts him 36 seconds up on Černy, who comes across the line.

De Gendt is third-fastest over the climb, just 10 seconds down on Ganna. Nice.

Černy won't get to enjoy the hot seat for very long, though. He has crushed it at an average speed of 47.5kph to set a time of 43:06, 50 seconds up on the CCC man.

Ganna is coming up to the second checkpoint.

A thumbs up for Dennis after the finish. Ganna has edged ahead by five seconds at the second check, meanwhile.

Another man down for Ganna – he passes Giovanni Visconti.

44:40 for Tratnik at the finish as he edges ahead of Campenaerts.

Checkpoint 3 for Ganna – he's gone even faster, putting 17.76 seconds into Dennis.

De Gendt third at the first two checkpoints. Ganna heads up the last hill of the day towards the finish line.

Ganna blows past time trial specialist Chad Haga now. The Italian has passed five men on the road now...

Matteo Sobrero beats his NTT teammate Campenaerts by fractions of a second at the finish.

Peter Sagan crosses the line with a decent time of 47:19, 15th place so far.

42:40 for Ganna at the finish! Crushing.

Ganna's teammate Jonathan Castroviejo sets off. Ilnur Zakarin next and then 16 men left to start.

43:51 for Thomas De Gendt at the finish. Third place for him. A very good ride from the Belgian.

A bit of a lull now as we wait for the GC men to start. Tanel Kangert (EF Pro Cycling) is third at the second checkpoint, though.

Castroviejo is 7th over the Muro, 33 seconds down on Ganna.

The last 15 men on GC head off at three-minute intervals. Tao Geoghegan Hart (Ineos Grenadiers) is off now. 11 left to go.

Jakob Fuglsang and Rafał Majka have started their efforts.

44:13 for Kangert at the line, good for fifth fastest so far.

Vincenzo Nibali (Trek-Segafredo) is off. How will he fare today? He should be among the strongest of the GC men.

Pozzovivo off now. He's a good time trialist despite his 1.65m frame and low weight.

McNulty is flying – 21:57 at the second check. He's in third, just 15 seconds slower than Ganna.

Konrad, Hindley and Majka haven't had great rides to the first check. 20th, 23th and 11th up the Muro.

Nibali 35 seconds down on Ganna at the top of the climb He's behind Majka, Masnada, Fuglsang and McNulty up there.

Here's Jakob Fuglsang out on course.
