The last time the Giro d’Italia took in an ITT on the last day was with the Ryder Hesjedal-Joaquim Rodriguez clash in 2012. The Spaniard rolled off the ramp in pink with an advantage of 31 seconds over the Canadian, but he ended up 16 seconds in arrears.
The closing stage of the 2017 Giro d’Italia begins at the Autodrome Nazionale Monza with a 5.8 kilometres round on the Formule 1-circuit. A few sharp turns to test their bike handling and then it’s off to Milan on straight and flat roads.
Milan and the Giro are more or less intertwined and according to tradition the finish is at the Piazza del Duomo, which is dominated by the impressive Milan Cathedral (Duomo). This time no circuit around the church, however, but high speeds to the finish line.
After 29.3 kilometres of agony on a flat route the 2017 Giro d’Italia is history.
