Preview: What you need to know about stage 21 of the 2022 Giro d'Italia
Date: Sunday May 29
Distance: 17.4 km (individual time trial)
The Giro ends with an individual time trial in Verona that’s defined by a stepwise climb of around 4.5 km (5% average). That climb peaks a little over halfway through the stage, after which it’s downhill then flat to the finsh line.

Who’s it for: The TT specialists and anyone who still has legs this late in the race.
CyclingTips’ picks: Thomas De Gendt and Matteo Sobrero should both challenge for the stage win. Ben Tulett could take a stage win to soften the team’s blow of losing pink yesterday. Edoardo Affini is also among the favourites but has spent a lot of energy in final week attacks.Read More
