Stage type: Hilly (summit finish)

What to expect: After a rest day, the peloton will have its work cut out for it on a stage 10 with a great chance of GC action. After leaving from historic Pompei, the riders will cover plenty of up and down on an otherwise short stage. The Bocca della Selva climb is a stair-step affair with a particularly steep final 6 km.

Fantasy favorites: The very steep gradients on the final climb really suit Tadej Pogačar (of course), but the stage itself seems like a great day for the attackers, whether from the early move or in a longer-range strike out of the GC group once the day’s first big break has been caught. Michael Storer, Einer Rubio, both Aurelien and Valentin Paret-Peintre, and Juan Pedro LΓ³pez are all worth watching … if UAE does in fact let the rest of the field have some fun.
