With the first rest day over and the riders safely transported islands from Sardinia to Sicily, the Giro d’Italia makes its first foray into the mountains on stage four.

A summit finish up the circa 18km climb of Mount Etna is on the cards for the peloton, and could potentially see the GC contenders make their first moves to try and gain an advantage in the overall battle.

No doubt a breakaway will fancy it’s luck at making it to the finish, with a tough category two climb to come ahead of Mount Etna, that won’t be an easy task.

The race was also likely to see another change in the maglia rosa; the fourth in four days of racing. Sprinter Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step) entered the stage wearing pink, but would more than likely sacrifice himself to aid his teammate Bob Jungels‘ hopes of a high overall placing.

With a flat stage to Messina to follow on stage five, the climbers could be willing to give it all they’ve got with the knowledge they could recover some energy for the mountains ahead on the easier parcours.
