Points system for sprints and KoM are radically different this year.
45 points for a stage win up from 40Intermediate sprints now carry 20 points with points down to 15th place and only one intermediate per stage
Only mountaintop finishes will carry double points not last climb of the dayOnly top six get points for HC, 1, 2 and 3 category climbs Only first rider gets points for 4th cat climbs
Sprints is most interesting its going to shake up the breakaway dynamic on flat stages, either people wont' get away or big names will have to go if they want to wear green.

That is pretty savage. Colle delle Finestre on the penultimate day before a last day time trial is pretty savage. route should make for an interesting race and should dissuade anyone from thinking the Giro is good preparation for the tour.
