The third and final rest day of the 2018 Giro d’Italia, organised by RCS Sport/La Gazzetta dello Sport and running from 4 to 27 May. There are great expectations for tomorrow’s stage; the 34.2km individual time trial from Trento to Rovereto is a pivotal day in the fight for the Corsa Rosa’s GC.

The first rider to start in tomorrow’s ITT, Giuseppe Fonzi (Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia), will set off at 13:20, while the last rider, the Maglia Rosa Simon Yates (Mitchelton – Scott), will start at 16:30.

The ITT starts and finishes within urban areas. The route is quite bumpy and elaborate, and the central part along the Adige river is mainly straight. Starting in Trento (Piazza del Duomo), the route encounters stretches of stone pavers, followed by roundabouts and traffic islands. The stage travels on wide, well paved and mostly straight streets (with just a few bends); the roadway only narrows at points while crossing urban areas.
Before the second time keeping point, there is a short climb followed by a short descent and a technical bend, leading back onto straight roads all the way to the finish. Final kilometres: the route rolls past the Adige river and reaches Rovereto. The roads are narrower here, and a number of 90-degree bends lead into wider avenues, heading for the finish. The home straight (570 m) is on 6.5-m wide asphalt road.
