"A TT the final stage of a Grand Tour is not enjoyable, never has been, never will be. Unless you win it, then it’s a euphoric day, that’s what happened to me on the final stage into Milan in the 2011 Giro. We started in some nondescript industrial estate that day, the 2017 Giro sees a much more iconic start, the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. Built in 1922 it was the third purpose-built motor racing circuit in the world. We pay homage to this by creating a design of the Monza start line, arguably more important to the vast majority of the peloton on the last day than the finish line, because simply still being in the race on that last day of a GT is a massive achievement in itself. The only familiarity between the stage in 2011 and the final TT stage in the 2017 Giro d'Italia was that they both finished in Piazza Duomo, and that they were both Stage 21."
