Riders to watch for the stage today (Italian time):

The first rider off the ramp today is Arkea-Samsic’s Alan Riou. He sets off at 12:40 UK time, so just half an hour from now. 

The jerseys:

Pogačar (UAD) has a commanding lead as we go into the penultimate weekend of the race with +2’40” over Daniel Martínez (BOH) and +2’56” over last year’s runner-up, Geraint Thomas (IGD).

The riders go back against the clock in this year’s race with the second individual time trial of the race. This time, however, there is no climb at the end of the stage for Pogačar (UAD) to blow the opposition away.
