Vi hakar på Giro de Italia och cyklar samma etapp som cyklisterna gör idag.
Stage 2: May 9 2010 – Amsterdam – Utrecht 209 km
Tight and technical
With the bunch nervy and lots of road furniture to contend with, this stage of regular twists and turns may not prove as straightforward as the pan-flat profile suggests. Surprisingly, the stage features the first two categorised climbs even though the highest point is only 60 metres above sea level.
The winner of the mountains jersey today will hold it until at least stage five, which will be a big carrot for the Dutch outfits and smaller teams, who’ll be desperate to feature in the podium presentations. Expect frenetic sprints on both climbs, and for things to get even more frantic at the finish.
