Stage two of the Giro d’Italia would see riders take on a 167km route from Haifa to Tel Aviv; the second stage of three in the race taking place in Israel.

Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) entered the stage holding the overall lead by two seconds over Australian Rohan Dennis (BMC), however made it clear he had no intention of trying to defend the maglia rosa over the opening stages, which would likely culminate in a sprint finish.

The likes of Elia Viviani (Quick-Step), Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Jakub Mareczko (Wilier Triestina) would all be eyeing a potential victory on the first road stage of the race, although they would have to safely navigate twisty and narrow closing kilometres into the city centre of Tel Aviv towards the finish.
