The second stage of the Giro d’Italia 2017 would see the riders continue their trip around the island of Sardinia, with a 221km stage from Olbia – Tortolì.

The main difficulty of the day would be a long categorised climb that the riders would summit with just under 50km to the finish, potentially giving an opportunity to those in the breakaway or someone who’d fancy their chances from a long way out.

After stage one’s upset with Lukas Pöstlberger (Bora-Hansgrohe) rolling off the front of the sprinters and taking a surprise victory and claimed the maglia rosa, the sprint teams will be desperate to try and usher their fast men over the long climb to Genna Silanna with a hope that they can make it to the finish and take a victory.

Whether or not the sprinters make it to the finish of stage two at the front, they’ll have another opportunity on stage three in Sicily on an almost completely flat 148km stage to Cagliari.
