Giro 2020 Favourites stage 21: For pure ITT specialists

Filippo Ganna - Giro 2020 Favourites stage 21: For pure ITT specialistsThe Giro d'Italia serves a flat time trial on the last day of action. The 16.5 kilometres route is tailor made for riders who can push a big gear.

The course is perfect for pure ITT specialists. In his glory days as a time trialist this would have been an easy catch for Tony Martin. The four-time World Champion stepped into the role of a super-domestique when he came to Jumbo-Visma, but why not give it a shot on this fast and flat route?

Victor Campenaerts is another favourite. The two-time European time trial champion has been aiming to win a Grand Tour stage for years.

Filippo Ganna represents the future of time trialing. But also the present. The Italian second in last year’s European time trial championships and third at the Worlds, while he took a commanding ITT victory in the Tirreno-Adraitico last month.
