It has all come down to the final day of the Giro d'Italia 2020 to decide who will pull on the pink jersey and lift the never ending trophy at the finish in Milan.

Jai Hindley (Team Sunweb) goes into today in pink, but he is on exactly the same time as Tao Geoghegan-Hart (Ineos Grenadiers) who has shown in the mid race time trial that he is the stronger rider against the clock.

Up to this point the race has been a very entertaining, unpredictable and close affair with Portugal's João Almeida (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) holding pink for 15 days before it was stolen from him by Wilco Kelderman (Team Sunweb) on stage 18, but even the Dutchman wasn't looking strong then.

It came down to stage 20 to set the scene for the final stage, Cernusco Sul Naviglio to Milan, a pan flat 15.7km course that will decide whether it will be a very unexpected British or Australian winner.

The rider who will be out and out favourite to take the stage is the time trial world champion, Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers), who will be hoping that he can take his fourth and his team's seventh stage victory at this year's Giro.

Others to watch will be Victor Campenaerts (NTT Pro Cycling), Josef Černy (CCC Team), Alex Dowsett (Israel Start-Up Nation), Brandon McNulty (UAE Team Emirates), Rohan Dennis (Ineos Grenadiers) and Jonathan Castroviejo (Ineos Grenadiers).

Here are all the start times for stage 21 of the Giro d'Italia 2020, the times are local and British readers will need to subtract an hour...

Hi, I'm one of Cycling Weekly's content writers for the web team responsible for writing stories on racing, tech, updating evergreen pages as well as the weekly email newsletter. Proud Yorkshireman from the UK's answer to Flanders, Calderdale, go check out the cobbled climbs!

I started watching cycling back in 2010, before all the hype around London 2012 and Bradley Wiggins at the Tour de France. In fact, it was Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck's battle in the fog up the Tourmalet on stage 17 of the Tour de France.

It took me a few more years to get into the journalism side of things, but I had a good idea I wanted to get into cycling journalism by the end of year nine at school and started doing voluntary work soon after. This got me a chance to go to the London Six Days, Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain to name a few before eventually joining Eurosport's online team while I was at uni, where I studied journalism. Eurosport gave me the opportunity to work at the world championships in Harrogate back in the awful weather.

After various bar jobs, I managed to get my way into Cycling Weekly in late February of 2020 where I mostly write about racing and everything around that as it's what I specialise in but don't be surprised to see my name on other news stories.

When not writing stories for the site, I don't really switch off my cycling side as I watch every race that is televised as well as being a rider myself and a regular user of the game Pro Cycling Manager. Maybe too regular.

My bike is a well used Specialized Tarmac SL4 when out on my local roads back in West Yorkshire as well as in northern Hampshire with the hills and mountains being my preferred terrain.
