Giro 2021 Favourites stage 2: First fast finishers showdown

Caleb Ewan uae - Giro 2021 Favourites stage 2: First fast finishers showdownimage: Cor VosThe 2nd stage is not the flattest of the Giro, but still, it is an ideal opportunity for the sprinters to have it their way.

Who’ll succeed Arnaud Démare? Last year, the Frenchman was by far the fastest finishers on the Giro. He won four stages and took home the maglia ciclamino.

But, to be honest, the world’s best sprinters were not in Italy last year. Caleb Ewan, Sam Bennett and Wout van Aert – all three winning two sprints at the Tour de France – did not take part in the Giro.

Ewan does ride the Giro this season. As he did in 2019, when he took two stages and was the most successful sprinter on the Italian grand tour.

The start list of the Giro is not yet confirmed, so we’ll update this article later.
