What to expect:
The route is demanding, but not extremely tough. Chances are that the breakaway will get some leeway and fight for the stage honours.
However should a GC rider feel like testing his rivals on the San Giacomo and we will see a different scenario develop.

Favourites 6th stage 2021 Giro d’Italia(actually it's more like a pin in the startlist)

:*:*:*:*:* .....................................
:*:*:*:* Mikel Nieve, Felix Großschartner
:*:*:* Thomas De Gendt, Gianluca Brambilla, Ruben Guerreiro
:*:* Simon Yates, Daniel Martin, Egan Bernal, Romain Bardet, Bauke Mollema
:* Jefferson Cepeda, Nicolas Roche, Matteo Fabbro, João Almeida, Valerio Conti

I'd tend to say Mollema deserves more than two stars. He mentioned this stage as a target he deliberately lost time for, and also that the team situation may develop more towards riding for Nibali if he stays up with the best over the weekend. So it could basically be one of his last chances to go for it.

For the GC guys, it'll be interesting to see if there's much of a selection. The final climb doesn't look overly hard to me. More like Dan Martin terrain. Maybe even Ulissi?
