Undeniably tough the riders will be tested right up until the final stage time trial in Monza.

It remains to be seen if the route will attract either Froome, Contador or Quintana. RCS have been bold and included the Stelvio, with the likelihood of snow and cold climates in mid May the riders will be sure to be tested to the limit.

The comments made after the presentation of the route of the 2017 Giro dItalia could have been inspired by Froome himself, who posted in a tweet that he loved the route, in leaked information the day before the official presentation.

In the past the three-time Tour de France champion said that his participation in the Italian race would affect his preparations for the French Grand To, but Froome could be suggesting his intentions.
