Radda in Chianti to Greve in Chianti
Sunday, May 15
40.4-kilometer individual time trial
The first crucial stage in the 2016 Giro is this time trial, taking in a relentless sequence of climbs and descents among the Consorzio del Chianti Classico vineyards. The riders will face a tough, rolling course on large roads. This is a day for the time trial specialists and those like Tom Dumoulin, who will need to put time into GC rivals who are better climbers.
