Hello and welcome to live coverage of the stage one time trial of the 2021 Giro d'Italia, the first Grand Tour of the season!

The first rider is off at 14.00 local time (CEST), or 13.00 if you're in the UK.

You can find the full list of start times here.

The opening time trial is short flat affair, just 8.6km in length and suited to the more powerful time trial riders like world champion Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers), who's the clear favourite to take the opening time trial for a second year in a row

You can see where the big names or your favourite riders start times are by checking out our stage one start times list.

But the first rider who has just set off is Filippo Tagliani of Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec. 

The second rider off in the 104th Giro d'Italia start ramp in Turin is the young Dutch sprinting talent of David Dekker. He was coming to this race as the team's sprinter but he now has to potentially work with Dylan Groenewegen.

One of the pre-stage favourites for the day, Victor Campenaerts or Team Qhubeka-Assos, sets off on his ride. New helmets and kit with a new position for 2021, will it be a winning change?
