After three weeks of racing, the Giro d’Italia comes to a conclusion with a short 115km stage around the monuments of Rome, which should culminate in a big bunch sprint.

While last year’s race finished with a time trial that saw Tom Dumoulin move from fourth to first overall and wrestle the pink jersey of the back of Nairo Quintana, the 2018 edition will finish with a largely ceremonial road stage.

That means that the pink jersey of Chris Froome should not come under threat, with the 33-year-old just needing to stay upright and finish in the bunch if he is to become the first British rider to win the Giro d’Italia.

Although the general classification is all but wrapped up, there is still the small matter of a prestigious stage win that will be hotly contested.

>>> Five talking points from stage 21 of the Giro d’d’italiaa

While the Tour de France finishes each year on the Champs-Élysées in the centre of Paris, this year’s Giro d’Italia is the first time since 2009 that the race will finish in Rome and, incredibly, the first time that it will finish with a road stage in the Italian capital since 1950.

Like the Champs-Élysées stage at the Tour, the route will mainly use roads surfaced with smooth city centre cobbles and will take in numerous famous monuments such as the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, and the Spanish Steps.

If previous sprints in this race is anything to go by, then this should be a battle between Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) and Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) with Viviani looking all but certain to finish in the maglia ciclamino.

The next major race on the calendar is the Critérium du Dauphiné which starts in Valence on June 3.
