Giro d’Italia 2016 Route stage 21: Cuneo – Turin

Giro 2016 stage 21Sunday, May 29, 2016 - In 163 kilomtres the riders head from Cuneo to Turin and then the 2016 Giro d'Italia is over. Chances are it will be up to the sprinters.

In 99 out of 100 times a flat closing stage in a Grand Tour boils down to a bunch sprint, but Iljo Keijsse mocked that logic in last year’s 21st stage. In the streets of Milano the Belgium outperformed the chasing pack with his companion Luke Durbridge to best him in a sprint-à-deux. By the way, that stage left from a place we are now arriving: Turin.

We have to go back to 1982 for the last Giro-finish in Turin. Back then Bernard Hinault did not only win the 42 kilometres individual time trial, he also took the overall. But expect the winner of the closing stage of the 2016 Giro d’Italia to be a sprinter.

At the line, time bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 seconds lay waiting, while intermediate sprints come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.
