Intro

PTP season is well underway and a mix of Giro hopefuls and form-searchers are heading to Italy.
Starting with a 12km ITT in Camaiore, this puncheur-friendly route crosses the Apennines and finishes in San Benedetto del Tronto. The race features only one real climbing challenge; stage 5's summit finish to Sarnano Sassotetto (13km @ 7+%). But will that be enough to decide the GC?

    Thomas isn't riding.
    That's annoying, he was on the startsheet when I put down my choice.
    No chance he can win GC now :D

    I'll go for Adam Yates in that case.

    Cav for Stage 2.
