On paper, the profile of stage three, the final stage of the 2017 Giro d’Italia on the island of Sardinia, would be one for the sprinters.

A flat 148km route to Cagliari with just one category four climb along the way, surely race leader and stage two victor André Greipel would fancy his chances of an eighth career win at the Giro and the prospect of carrying the maglia rosa into the rest day on Monday.

And while the first two days of the Giro d’Italia have been far from the most exciting race of the year, this is the Giro and anything can happen, even on a flat stage.

With the final 10-15km of the route along the coast, the prospect of crosswinds could see this Classic orientated riders try and pull away, while the GC teams would need to be extremely wary to stop their climbers getting caught out if the wind starts to blow in from the sea.
