Giro 2015: Stage 17 Favourites - A sprinter’s Alpine dream
Being a sprinter, it’s not too often you receive such a windfall. Sandwiched between alpine giants and Alpine stages, stage 17 is a classic example of a sprinter’s dream. Small climb at the start and a doable hill in the finale, that's it as far as climbing is concerned. Gentlemen rockets, ready... set... go! (Slideshow route/profile)
The hill in the finale could be a problem for the likes of Kittel, but he is not in the Giro and fast men like Moreno Hofland, Fabio Felline, Juan José Lobato won’t be bothered by it. Other likely contenders are Elia Viviani, Luka Mezgec, Giacomo Nizzolo, Sacha Modolo and Matteo Pelucchi.
