Giro d'Italia (st. 1)

Portuguese specialist 29″ off dominating Filippo Ganna (IGD) -first Maglia Rosa- in Torino as Movistar Team gets through day one with no setbacks; Soler within main favourites’ times.

Filippo Ganna (IGD) won Saturday’s inaugural TT of the 2021 Giro d’Italia, ahead of Jumbo-Visma’s Edoardo Affini (2nd) and Tobias Foss (3rd), over an 8.6km course in Torino that resembled a prologue and was dominated by the specialists.

Marc Soler finished 41″ behind the World Champion, ahead of likley GC rivals like Landa (TBV), Hindley or Bardet (DSM) and with a similar time to the likes of Nibali (TFS) or Bennett (TJV). Almeida and Evenepoel (DQT) were the quickest among the GC contenders (4 and 6″ behind Ganna), whereas Yates (BEX) and Bernal (IGD) lost 25 and 26″ each.
