Giro 2014: Stage 17 Favourites: A battle of tired sprinters?
Wednesday, 28th May, 2014- What sprinters will remain in the race after all the mountains that have now been climbed? Those that have hung in there get another chance of a stage win today. (Slideshow route/profile)
A route today that is constantly descending, something that will be welcomed among the GC favourites.
With some eyes on the Tour and some eyes at the back of the head after all the climbing, it’s hard to know just who form the sprinters will be feeling up for this one. Points are also important as Bouhanni looks to solidify his lead.
It’s hard to look beyond the Frenchman for the win, with Viviani, Swift, Farrar and Nizzolo providing competition.
