Crashes expected in dicey Milan super-criterium

Route: Traditionally the Giro's finishing point, the centenary race

Local hero:Acqua & Sapone's Luca Paolini is a good pick for a stage

Procycling's top tip: Surely one for the sprinters, but don't discount a late burst of unparalleled power from Saxo Bank's Fabian Cancellara. The twists and turns towards the finish could favour a lone break.

Savio speaks: Milano is the heart of the Giro, but this year the Giro changes completely. The finishing city moved from Milano to Roma and, rightly so, there had to be a stage in Milano at some point along the route. You will see a great circuit with many people out in Milano on Sunday. Look out for Cavendish and Petacchi.
