Sardinia for Fabio Aru. Sicily for Vincenzo Nibali.The 100th edition of the Giro dItalia will pay homage to the countrys two top riders with a start that will include stages on both of Italys largest islands.Revealed Tuesday in Milan, the May 5-28 race will start with three stages in Sardinia to honor Aru, followed by two legs in Sicily for Nibali.Aru last year became the first Sardinian to wear the Giro leaders pink jersey, when he finished second to Alberto Contador, while Nibali, a Sicilian, won in 2013 and 2016.Aru and Nibali were teammates at Astana the past four years but Nibali recently left to lead the new Bahrain-Merida team, setting up a duel in the Giro.After crossing the Strait of Messina by boat, the race will climb north through Calabria and Puglia and eventually visit all but four of Italys 20 regions.To celebrate the 100th edition we have to celebrate all of Italy, race director Mauro Vegni said.Next years race will also include many of the legendary climbs from the Giros history, including a finish at Oropa in the northwest region of Piedmont, where Marco Pantani won in 1999, and two ascents in a single stage of the high-altitude Stelvio Pass, near the Swiss border.There are two time trials -- a 39.2-kilometer (24-mile) route through the Umbrian winemaking region of Sagrantino in Stage 10 and a 28-kilometer (17.4 mile) concluding leg from Monzas Formula One track to Milans cathedral.With four mountain-top finishes and a total of 67.2 kilometers (42 miles) of time trialing, the route could be more challenging than the recently announced 2017 Tour de France, which has only three mountain-top finishes and 36 kilometers (22 miles) of time trialingStill, Tour winner Chris Froome, 2014 Giro champion Nairo Quintana and two-time Giro winner Alberto Contador have all indicated they plan to focus on the Tour next year.But the time trials could attract rising Dutch rider Tom Dumoulin, who is a specialist at racing against the clock.Here are some aspects of the 2017 race:--VOLCANIC SLOPES:After a rest day to transfer from Sardinia, Stage 4 on May 9 starts in the coastal town of Cefalu and features the races first uphill finish on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna -- where Contador won in 2011.Stage 10 sets up for sprinters with the finish line in Messina, Nibalis birthplace, having started in Pedara on the slopes of Etna.The finish is really tough, and theres little vegetation so it can be windy, Nibali said of the Etna stage. Getting the pink jersey going into my hometown would be great, but lets take it step by step.Organizers had already announced details of the three stages in Sardinia.The Giro will set off from the port town of Alghero on an undulating 203-kilometer (126-mile) route along the islands northern coast to Olbia.Stage two is a hilly 208-kilometer (129-mile) leg from Olbia to Tortoli, which could also end in a sprint, while the final day in Sardinia is a mainly flat 148 kilometers (92 miles) from Tortoli to Cagliari.---IN VINO VERITAS: For the third consecutive year, the Giro will feature a time trial dedicated to one of Italys top winemaking regions.This year its Stage 10 from Foligno to Montefalco through the Umbrian vineyards where the bold, red variety Sagrantino is produced.Nearly 40 kilometers (25 miles) in length, the undulating stage could have a big impact on the overall standings.Along the same lines, a 2015 stage from Barbaresco to Barolo celebrated Piedmonts top wines and a rainy leg this year from Radda to Greve in Chianti traversed the heart of the Tuscan red winemaking region.---HEROES AND LEGENDSItalian cycling icons Gino Bartali, Ercole Baldini, Fausto Coppi, Marco Pantani and others will be remembered with stages in their honor.Stage 11 runs through the Appenine Mountains after beginning in Pont a Ema, where Bartali was born -- directly in front of the museum dedicated to the 1936, `37 and `46 winner.The next days stage starts in Forli, where 1958 champion Baldini was born.Stages 13 and 14 are dedicated to five-time winner Fausto Coppi. The 13th leg ends in Tortona, where the Campionissimo died in 1960 and the next leg starts in Castellania, where Coppi was born in 1919.Stage 14 concludes with a climb to Oropa, where Pantani posted one of his more memorable victories in 1999.---DECISIVE DOLOMITESThe race will likely be decided in the Dolomites Range in the final week.Stage 16 figures to be one of the races toughest challenges. The stage begins with an ascent of the steep and narrow Mortirolo then the Stelvio is climbed both from the Italian and Swiss sides before a final descent into Bormio. At an altitude of 2,758 meters (9,050 feet), the Stelvios peak will represent the races highest point -- traditionally known as the Cima Coppi (Coppi peak).Stage 18 could be even tougher. While only 137 kilometers (85 miles) long, the races showcase stage will take the peloton over four major mountain passes -- Pordoi, Valparola, Gardena and Pinei.The next day features the fourth summit finish at Piancavallo, while the penultimate leg from Pordenone to Asiago includes a difficult climb to Monte Grappa -- the scene of fighting in both world wars.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf Supply NFL Jerseys .

Rugby league star Semi Radradra has two days to justify why he failed to show up to court for a domestic violence hearing or a warrant will be issued for his arrest.An unimpressed magistrate revoked the 24-year-olds bail and ordered an arrest warrant be issued but put on hold until Thursday, following Radradras no-show on Monday.The Eels winger was due to face a one-day hearing at the Parramatta Local Court on domestic violence-related charges, but flew to Fiji last Wednesday citing a medical emergency with his father.Magistrate Tim Keady was not convinced by a doctors letter provided by the defence that said Radradras father suffered from asthma and pulmonary tuberculosis and required further medication.Magistrate Keady said the illness appeared to be long term and nothing in the letter justified Radradras sudden departure.He said the NRL star knew how serious that matter was and the onus was on him to satisfy the court with a satisfactory reason for his absence.If some further information can be obtained which provides the basis for deciding there was a reasonable excuse then that warrant will not be issued, he said.Radradra pleaded not guilty in July to two couunts of common assault and one of assault causing actual bodily harm, all related to domestic violence.ddddddddddddhe charges relate to alleged attacks on his estranged partner, Perina Ting, in December 2014 and May 2015.Prosecutors initially applied to postpone Mondays hearing because two of their witnesses were due to attend a conference in Victoria.Radradras legal team opposed the prosecution application and it was refused last Tuesday - the day before the Parramatta player left the country.The court heard his bail conditions were eased on October 11 to allow overseas travel for work and family commitments but that freedom expired on Monday.Radradras hearing was postponed until February, with the case to return to court later this week.Parramatta chief Bernie Gurr said the NRL club, which had granted Radradra compassionate leave to travel home to be with family, supported the reasonable position of the court.We continue to work with Semis manager to ensure Semi is in compliance with all future court requests, he said in a statement.
