Giro d'Italia 2020: Route of postponed race revealed

Who is competing?

Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) and Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) will resume their duel after taking a British one-two at Tirreno–Adriatico. Thomas was a shock omission from the Tour de France as Ineos put their faith in defending champion Egan Bernal.
Steven Kruijswijk, third at the Tour de France last summer, will spearhead Team Jumbo-Visma's challenge. Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) and Vincenzo Nibali (Trek–Segafredo) are the other fancied names.

Odds

  • Geraint Thomas 2/1
  • Simon Yates 7/2
  • Steven Kruijswijk 7/2
  • Vincenzo Nibali 5/1
  • Jakob Fuglsang 6/1
  • Rafal Majka 22/1
  • Ivan Ramiro Sosa 25/1
  • Joao Almeida 40/1
  • BAR 50/1
