Julian Alaphilippe, this day was made for you. The Frenchman is without a Grand Tour stage win since 2021, when he grabbed the yellow jersey on the opening day of the Tour de France. With four punchy categorised climbs on the menu, Alaphilippe will be among the favourites for victory. So how can you watch Stage 12 of the Giro d’Italia? And when does coverage start on Eurosport and discovery+?

If ever there was a stage that screamed “day for the breakaway”, this is it.

After a gentle start along the Adriatic coast, the race heads inland to tackle a series of ups and downs, with four Cat. 4 climbs dotted about to sap any teams hoping for a bunch finish.

Julian Alaphilippe (Soudal Quick-Step) looks a good shout for victory after hinting at a return to form in the opening week and a bit, while Jhonatan Narvaez (Ineos Grenadiers) will be looking to double up after his near-miss on Stage 9.

Or could it be a day for Kaden Groves, whose Alpecin-Deceuninck team-mates have plugged a heavy tempo on the climbs to weed out his slightly faster rivals? If the race comes back together, the Australian will fancy himself against a reduced group.
