Pro riders ride race route and talk tactics

Giro dProfessional rider Dario Cioni (Sky Procycling) and Dan Lloyd (IG Sigma Sport) have taken part in some of the biggest races in cycling and use that knowledge to discuss today’s eleventh stage of the Giro d’Italia. The duo give their thoughts on how they expect things to play out on a stage that looks most likely to end in a bunch sprint, riding the same roads that the riders will slug it out on today, while statistics explain the physiological demands the riders will face under different circumstances.

Cioni and Lloyd are two very experienced riders, having competed in some of the biggest races in the sport, including the Giro d’Italia. The 255 kilometre stage from Assisi to Montecanti Terme is the longest of this year’s Giro. It is a flat, fast stage punctuated just over halfway through by the third category Poggio Alla Croce, and also features other uncategorised ramps which could act as a springboard for those seeking to avoid the predicated bunch sprint. The climb at Vico comes eleven kilometres from the finish and will almost certainly see the puncheurs fire off moves.
