The 99th edition of the Giro d’Italia has all the ingredients to be another successful edition of the “Fight for Pink”, with a balanced and innovative race route, some classic mountain stages, three important time trials and a eclectic start list that should ensure some entertaining and spectacular racing on each of the 21 stages.
Whoever reaches Turin in the iconic maglia rosa on May 29 will deservedly add their name to the race’s roll of honour and add a Grand Tour victory to their own palmares.
The last time the Giro d’Italia started in the Netherlands, Bradley Wiggins won the time trial and pulled on the pink jersey. Cancellara will be a contender in the opening time trail in Apeldoorn and having Spartacus in pink is a dream scenario that race director Mauro Vegni is hoping will come true.
