Found this video put together by Gazzetto della Sport via Sporthill.tv with a course fly-by for the upcoming Giro d’Italia.  The event starts in the North of Italy, touches into Austria, Switzerland and France, then finishes outside of Milan for the first time since 1989.  It starts with a 20.5k team time trial and finishes 3395.5k later after crossing six mountain top finishes.

During some pre-ride recon, Lance Armstrong had this to say about the Stage 12 individual time trial: “Giro TT is wicked hard. Never, ever flat and 62 kms. Doubtful for riding the tt bike as well. And the descents…?? Insane..”
