Pro racing will return to Sicily this year, with the new Giro di Sicilia launching earlier than expected and taking an early April slot in the UCI calendar. A new four-day race in Sicily had been widely reported in local media outlets since the turn of the year , but, given the time constraints, it was widely expected to be a project for the season. The dates clash with the cobbled classics in Belgium, with Dwars door Vlaanderen taking place on April 3 and the Tour of Flanders on April 7. However, the race could attract Grand Tour riders, possibly with an eye on the Giro d'Italia in May, and maybe even Ardennes Classics contenders, with the race finishing two days before the start of the Itzulia Basque Country stage race. The addition of the race marks a return to Sicily after a number of years.

The year-old American now leads the overall by 59 seconds with Saturday's final Queen to Mt. Etna remaining.
