Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) will not let a three-minute time trial loss deter him, promising to "give it everything" as the 2019 Giro d'Italia races towards the mountains.

The race covers its first high-mountain stage on Friday with the summit finish at Lago Serrù. Yates, winner of the 2018 Vuelta a España, will need as much strength as possible to overthrow race favourite Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma).
