Bradley Wiggins (Sky) considers the Giro d'Italia's time trial on Saturday a 'huge' opportunity to win the race overall. The 54.8-kilometre test closes the first week and balances well with the Alpine climbs to come - perfect for the Tour de France champion.

"It's huge for the overall," Wiggins told Cycling Weekly. "I know a lot of guys have seen it and I know a lot of guys are scared of it, but it's good for me."
