After the sprinters battled through the wind and rain on stage 12 of the Giro d’Italia, the fast men will be hoping for a more straightforward bunch sprint on stage 13.

The race runs 180km from Ferrara to Nervesa della Battaglia, with much of the day being pan-flat albeit with a fourth-category climb that is crested with 20km to the finish.

While a late climb thwarted the chances of many sprinters on Thursday’s stage to Imola, today’s late climb is further from the finish and has gentler gradients that mean we should still see a bunch sprint.

The likes of Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) and Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe), who have two wins each already in this Giro, will fancy their chances at holding on up the climb to contest a valuable and rare sprint finish in the race.

Anyone who misses out here will have a little while to wait until the next bunch sprint, which shouldn’t come until stage 17, or maybe even until the final stage to Rome on Sunday week.

The Giro d’Italia 2018 concludes on May 27 in Rome.
