Stage 3 - Monday, May 12: Catania - Milazzo , 221km

The sprinters will be ready to blast like Muncibeddu for the first time in this year's Corsa Rosa with the 221-kilometre run to Milazzo. After starting in Catania, the riders will ride around the parameter of the active volcano of Mount Etna and then start the final flat 120 kilometres to Milazzo. The race has only visited this seaside city once before, and that was in 1961 when Italy's Nino Defilippis reigned.

Other expected sprint finishes are stages Catanzaro (four), San Vincenzo (nine), Carpi (12), Cittadella (13) and Locarno (18). (GB)
