Who will win the 2021 Giro d'Italia? CyclingTips predictions

After last year’s Giro d’Italia was delayed until October due to COVID, Italy’s biggest race returns to its regular May timeslot this year for its 104th edition.

Starting in Torino in far north-west Italy on Saturday May 8, the race sweeps down Italy’s eastern coastline, reaching its southernmost point by stage 8. From there the riders will head north again, back towards the Alps for the final week. The race ends as it often does, in Milan, in the shadows of the spectacular Duomo di Milano.

The team discusses contenders. Who will show up ready to fight for the pink jersey, and who could surprise us. Plus, Peter Sagan is back, but can he out sprint Caleb Ewan?
