After the first five stages of the Giro d’Italia were clearly either sprint stages or a summit finish, stage six presents a slightly less predictable test.

The early stages see a couple of early climbs before the peloton should settle into its rhythm along the coast, leading into a lumpy and potentially unpredictable final 40km as the race makes its way up the toe of the boot of Italy.

This lumpy ending could give the opportunity for a break to go clear, but if it all stays together then the uphill finish to Terme Luigiane, with a final two kilometres that includes gradients of up to 10 per cent, should be enough to put of the sprinters.

However there shouldn’t be any threats to the pink jersey of Bob Jungels, who looked assured on the summit finish to Mount Etna, and has a strong Quick-Step Floors team to keep him out of trouble.
