PTP2020 - Giro d'Italia - Saturday 3rd October - Sunday 25th October

red.riderred.rider Posts: 484
The Giro d'Italia kicks off with a 15.1km downhill ITT in Sicily and finishes 3 weeks later with a 15.7km flat ITT in Milan. How lumpy it gets in between is down to the Autumn weather gods.

The first rider rolls off the ramp at 13:15 Euro time on Saturday, so GC and Stage 1 picks before then. 12 noon UK time for stages 2-21. Note that some of the longer stages start as early as 09:15, so lots of chance for in-play betting.

The Course
3x ITT, 250+km stages, big snowy mountains, and a volcano. All profiles here.

    Well, you don't win PTP by picking the same as everybody else.
    But you don't win by picking losers either. Tough choice...

    Somebody else might be comfortably out in front tomorrow now. 😉
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.
