Filippo Ganna continues his time trial winning streak
There’s no stopping world time trial champion Filippo Ganna against the clock. The Ineos Grenadiers star bounded to victory Monday, and extended his winning streak in time trials.
Ganna has won eight time trials in a row that he’s started, dating back to the 2020 Italian national time trial championships in August. He then won a time trial at Tirreno-Adriatico before stomping to the world title in Italy.
He backed that up by sweeping all three time trials in last year’s Giro d’Italia. He opened 2021 with wins against the clock at Étoile de Bessèges and Monday at the UAE Tour.
His next scheduled time trial in stage 7 at Tirreno-Adriatico in March. All but two of his 13 career pro victories on the road have come against the clock.
Giro d’Italia reveals course details Wednesday
The route of the 104th edition of the Giro d’Italia, set for May 8-30, will be revealed Wednesday in an event without public in RAI studios in Milano.
Several details are already confirmed. The “big start” will be in Italy’s Piedmont region, with the opening day time trial in Turino. The second stage runs from Stupinigi to Novara and the third from Biella to Canala, also in the Piedmont.
The race already revealed its wildcard invitations, which included Vini Zabù, Bardiani and Eolo-Kometa, the new team backed by Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso. Overlooked were Italian team Androni-Sidermec and Nairo Quintana’s Arkéa-Samsic.
