Starting with 195km from Budapest to Visegrád (uphill finish), a 9.2km Budapest ITT, and a final sprint stage in Hungary before transferring to Sicilly to ride up a volcano. Then a few more bumps on the road to fair Verona for a final 17.4km hilly ITT. This year's Cima Coppi is the Passo Pordoi at 2239m on stage 20.

See Blazing's superb thread for more details and insight.

    Carapaz is the clear favourite but where is the fun in that? So much can go wrong.

    GC: Joao Almeida
    S1: Matthieu Van Der Poel
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Stage 1 Results:
    Shared Ciclamino for the majority of the peloton, but Mad_Malx is in Pink for his "outsider" GC pick of Pello Bilbao (even is his stage 1 pick fell off his bike).

    First rider goes off at 13:00 BST in tomorrow's TT, so picks required before the beeps.
