After the Giro d’Italia‘s Big Start in Israel, plus a transfer day on Monday, the race hits its homeland on Tuesday with stage four.

Sicily hosts the tough, rolling stage starting in Catania and finishing in Caltagirone 202 kilometres later.

It’s a day with a sting in the tail, featuring a sharp little climb to the line that will spoil the party for the sprinters.

General classification riders will have to be wary on the run-in to the finish, positioning themselves to stay out of trouble and mark any late attacks.

Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) goes into the stage as overall leader, having claimed the coveted maglia rosa after stage two.

The Australian leads defending champion and stage one winner Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) by just one second, with José Gonçalves (Katusha-Alpecin) in third at a more distant 13 seconds.

The 2018 Giro d’Italia continues in Sicily on Wednesday for stage five, a relatively short 152km trip from Agrigento to Santa Ninfa that features a second half peppered with climbs and finishing with an ascent. Coastal winds could also play their part.

Then on Thursday it’s the 2018 Giro’s fist big climbing test, stage six to Mount Etna that should really see the general classification shaken up.

The 2018 Giro d’Italia concludes on Sunday, May 27, in Rome after three weeks of racing.
