Another stage steeped in history: real history. Having left the Romagna region, the Giro will pay tribute - between the Montello and the Piave - to one of the city-martyrs and symbol of the victory of the Great War, in celebration of the centenary of the war's ending. In the initial part, the Corsa Rosa returns to the Polesine region after an absence of more than thirty years. It is one of the very last opportunities for the pure sprinters. The favourites for final success will have other things to think about.
