Giro d'Italia Stage 1: Tortolì-Cagliari

The stage is basically flat, with just mild and gentle undulations throughout the route. The first 90 kilometres are raced on a fast-flow road, passing through a number of well-lit tunnels. After leaving the ss. 125, the route runs across Villasimius (intermediate sprint) and takes in a few short climbs along the coastal road. KOM points are for grabs at Capo Boi. Then comes a perfectly flat stretch of road, leading to the finish (for the fourth time in the history of Giro) in Cagliari. The final 10 kilometres are completely flat. The roads are wide and with a number of roundabouts, but no tricky curves. The home straight is 800 m long, on 8-m wide asphalt road (up to the last 350 m).

Giro d'Italia Stage 4: Cefalù-Etna

The first summit finish awaits the peloton after a medium mountain stage. The route follows the mild undulations of the road for 55 km, and then tackles a long and steady climb up Portella Femmina Morta. A very long and manageable descent then leads to the feed zone and to the intermediate sprint in Bronte. The route hits the foot of Mount Etna and runs across a number of villages, heading towards the finish, all the way to Nicolosi, where the closing climb begins. The final part of the route runs through urban areas, on narrowed and often stone-paved roads. The final climb, on wide and tarmacked road, has an average gradient of approx. 6%, with no punchy bits. The road winds its way along wide hairpins for nearly 20 km. There is a mild counterslope with 500 m to go. The home stretch (200 m, 3% uphill grade) leads to the finish line, on 7-m wide asphalt road.

Hoping for Nibali of course, but he will probably keep it safe for now.
