Buongiorno!

It doesn't get much better than this, does it? Well, time trials certainly don't. For the first time in the history of this beguiling, brilliant sport of ours, the top two riders enter the final day of a Grand Tour tied on time. That's right, after more than 85 hours and nearly 4000 kilometres of racing, nothing more than fractions of a second separate our two candidates for the overall title, and it comes down to this, a 15.7km TT in Milan.

In the pink corner - thanks to those superior fractions from the previous TTs - is Jai Hindley, the 24-year-old Australian who took the maglia rosa from his own teammate yesterday. In the opposite corner, Tao Geoghegan Hart, the 25-year-old Brit who came here to work for Geraint Thomas but has soared in the mountains in the past week.

They're contemporaries, they're friends, but for these 15.7 kilometres they're fierce rivals. Winner takes all.

Before we get going, now's the time to have a read of our stage preview from our man in Milan, Barry Ryan.
