The Grand Tour season kicks off today with the start of the Giro d’Italia. Despite it being the Tour of Italy today’s first stage takes place in Denmark with a fast 8.7km prologue around the streets of Herning. For fans in the UK the race will be televised on British Eurosport with first stage coverage beginning at 2:30pm.
To help get in the mood we’ve watched the great Giro preview video a few times already, it’s well worth a look.
Without Contador competing due to his 2 year ban who will take this years honours?
