Stage type: Flat

What to expect: The peloton will see the Adriatic coast for the first time on stage 11, a day tailor made for the sprinters. Speeds should get pretty high in the waterfront finale, where the fast finishers will have more than 3 km of straightaway on the run-in to the line.

Fantasy favorites: You know the names by now. Jonathan Milan, Tim Merlier, and Kaden Groves are our favorites to take the stage win, in that order. Phil Bauhaus and Caleb Ewan could also be in the mix. Most of the camera time Fabio Jakobsen has gotten so far at this Giro has come from him being dropped but perhaps he will start to turn things around in the second week; an in-form Jakobsen would certainly be among the favorites here.
