Giro Time Trial today is a doozy [PROFILE MAP]

This 60.6 kilometer time trial covers one of the most difficult crono courses in recent memory. The Giro organizers use the word “torment” in their description of its difficulties. The course follows the bumpy Ligurian coastline from Sestri Levante to Riomaggiore. Cut into the side of the cliffs, the road follows the curves of the creased coastline where sheer cliffs drop down to the ocean. The red-roofed seaside towns cling barnacle-like to the steep hillsides terraced with vineyards. Beautiful country, pure and simple.

SHOOT: Di Luca called this course 'a gift to Lance Armstrong'. Shopuld shake up the general classification a lot.
