9.8-kilometer individual time trial

Much has been made of the fact that this Giro offers three individual time trials. But the truth is that the 40-kilometer stage 9 TT will likely be the only one where the specialists can make serious time. Stage 15 will be a 10.8-kilometer uphill TT, while stage 1 will be an even shorter, technical run through the city of Apeldoorn. Of course, it will have a pink jersey waiting at the end.T15_MadonnaDC_2_alt
