Giro 2022 Favourites stage 21: Dumoulin’s final say

Tom Dumoulin rio - Giro 2022 Favourites stage 21:image: Cor VosTime trialists have the final say in a 17.4 kilometres race around Verona. The course features a 4.5 kilometres climb at 4.6% halfway.

Does Tom Dumoulin still have it in him to ride for GC in a Grand Tour? We’ll know when the decisive ITT in Verona begins, but there is a huge question mark hovering above his head before the start of the Giro.

There is no doubt on his time trial skills though. The Dutchman was a silver medalist in Tokio’s Olympic Games of last year. Given the competition, he is the hot favourite to win the Verona ITT. On the other hand, Simon Yates bested the Dutchman in the Budapest ITT on day one. That course was shorter and finished on a punchy climb.
