Giro d’Italia 2022: stages, profiles and route

This Thursday the Giro d’Italia has completed the puzzle into which it has turned the presentation of the route of its 2022 edition. A route of 3,410 kilometers and more than 51,000 meters of positive unevenness with terrain for all runners and with days that could pass to the history of cycling.

Stage 1: Budapest – Visegrad (Friday, May 6)

The Giro d’Italia will start in Budapest after failing to do so in 2020 and will do so with a 195-kilometer day between Budapest and Visegrad in an ideal finish for ambushes with a final climb of 5 kilometers at 5.5%.

Stage 2: Budapest – Budapest (Saturday, May 7)

The second day of the Giro d’Italia will bring us the first day in which the favorites to the general classification could put time for their rivals: a time of 9.2 kilometers starting and finishing in Budapets with a final section that includes ramps of 14% .

Stage 3: Kaposvár – Balatonfüred (Sunday, May 8)

The last day of the Giro in Hungary is presented as the first great opportunity for sprinters with an almost completely flat course of 201 kilometers between Kaposvár and Balatonfüred.

Stage 4: Avola – Etna (Tuesday, May 10)

The Giro will reach Italian soil through Sicily and it will do so with the first great mountain stage of 166 kilometers, starting in Avola and arriving at the always demanding Mount Etna, with the finish line located at Rifugio Sapienza after 14 kilometers of ascent.

Stage 5: Catania – Messina (Wednesday, May 11)

The sprinters will have another chance of victory on a 172-kilometer day between Catania and Messina. The climb to Portella Mandrazzi (second category) is emerging as the great difficulty of the day although it is located 97 kilometers from the finish line.

Stage 6: Palmi – Scalea (Thursday, May 12)

The peloton will make the leap to the Italian Peninsula in a 192-kilometer day between Palmi and Scalea in which the cyclists will skirt the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea for a good part of the day before the more than foreseeable volata for the sprinters in Scalea.

Stage 7: Diamante – Potenza (Friday, May 13)

A demanding day for the squad over a 198-kilometer route on their way to the north of the country. The climbs to Passo Colla (2nd), Monte Sirino (1st), Monte Scuro (2nd) and La Sellata (3rd) guarantee a lot of spectacle in a stage in which the peloton is expected to arrive broken to Potenza

Stage 8: Naples – Naples (Saturday, May 14)

The peloton will face another day with various heights on a 149-kilometer route starting and finishing in Naples, with several laps of a circuit where the five climbs to Monte di Procida could break the race.

Stage 9: Isernia – Blockhaus (Sunday, May 15)

The first week of the Giro will end with the first of the three five-star stages of this edition, as the riders will have to face an unevenness of almost 5,000 meters in 187 kilometers. The climb to Roccaraso (2nd) in the initial section could enliven a day in which Passo Larciano (1st) will be promoted before the final climb to the demanding Blockhaus, which could make significant differences and eliminate several favorites from the general classification.

Stage 10: Pescara – Jesi (Tuesday, May 17)

The second week will start with a day of 194 kilometers in which the cyclists will have a quiet first part before entering the final 100 kilometers full of walls and climbs such as the Crocette di Montecosaro, Recanati and Monsano, the latter 10 kilometers from the Jesi’s goal. The Giro will also pay tribute to Michele Scarponi, as the day will pass through Filottrano, the city where the ill-fated cyclist lived.

Stage 11: Santarcangelo di Romagna – Reggio Emilia (Wednesday, May 18)

The sprinters will once again have a new chance of victory on this practically flat 201-kilometer day in which they will have a positive unevenness of only 480 meters.

Stage 12: Parma – Genoa (Thursday, May 19)

On its way to Northern Italy, the peloton will have to face a demanding test over 186 kilometers towards Genoa. The climb to Passo del Bocco (3rd) after a start without favorable terrain for runners is the anticipation of a demanding final section full of heights and where they are climbed to Chiesa Vecchia (3rd) and, above all, to Monte Becco (2nd) and its subsequent descent could break the race before the finish line in Genoa.

Stage 13: San Remo – Cuneo (Friday, May 20)

Another opportunity for the fast men of the Giro on a route of 157 kilometers. The climb to Colle di Nava (3rd), located more than 100 kilometers from the finish line, should not be a problem for the sprinters to fight for the victory in the volata.

Stage 14: Santena – Torino (Saturday, May 21)

The peloton faces another demanding route of 153 kilometers and almost 3,500 meters of accumulated unevenness on the way to Turin. A first pass through the Colle della Maddalena (3rd) will give way to two laps of a demanding circuit that includes the climb to the demanding Bric del Duca (2nd) and the Colle della Maddalena (3rd) as well as two other non-scoring heights before the Turin goal.

Stage 15: Rivarolo Canavese – Cogne (Sunday, May 22)

The second week of the Giro will close with a 177-kilometer high mountain stage in which, after a favorable start despite several heights, cyclists will have to climb three very demanding passes in the second half of the stage: Pila-Les -Fleurs (1st), Verrogne (1st) and finally the final climb to Cogne, also first class.

Stage 16: Salò – Aprica (Tuesday, May 24)

The last week of the Giro will start with what, predictably, is the queen stage of this edition with the hardness that it accumulates in its 200 kilometers of route. The road will start to climb upwards before the first colossus of the day, the Goletto di Cadino (1st). Its descent will lead to one of the great passes of this Giro, the Passo del Mortirolo (1st), which could break the race even more. As if this were not enough and with the accumulated fatigue in the legs, the cyclists will have to make the demanding climb to Santa Cristina (1st), which they will crown 6 kilometers from the Aprica finish line.

Stage 17: Ponte di Legno – Lavarone (Wednesday, May 25)

With the Mortirolo hangover still on their legs, the cyclists will have to face another demanding day of 165 kilometers that will begin with the non-scoring climb to Passo del Tonale before a very long descent prior to a final section that includes the climb to Giovo (3rd) and a terrifying final 50 kilometers with the climbs to Passo del Vetriolo (1st) and Monte Rovere, the Menador climb, first class, which will crown 8 kilometers from the Lavarone finish line.

Stage 18: Borgo Valsugana – Treviso (Thursday, May 26)

The last chance for sprinters will take place on a 146-kilometer route in which the cyclists will ride for most of the day on favorable terrain except for several heights before the completely flat 40 kilometers before the Treviso volata.

Stage 19: Marano Lagunare – Santuario di Castelmonte (Friday, May 27)

The Giro enters its final stretch and does so with a very demanding day of 178 kilometers. An almost flat first section of the stage will give way to several heights before the climb to Passo di Tanamea (3rd) before the race enters Slovenia to ascend to Kolovrat (1st). As if this were not enough, the runners will have to face the final climb to the finish line of Santuario di Castelmonte, second category.

Stage 20: Belluno – Marmolada / Passo Fedaia (Saturday, May 28)

The last great mountain day of the Giro d’Italia presents a very tough route that makes it worthy of its five stars despite having 167 kilometers. After a relatively quiet start, the peloton will have to face the climb to three colossi of the Dolomites: Passo San Pellegrino (1st), Passo Pordoi, Cima Coppi of this edition with its 2,239 meters and, as a culmination, the final ascent to the Marmolada, the first-rate Passo Fedaia, which could not be climbed in the 2021 edition.

Stage 21: Verona – Verona (Sunday, May 29)

The 2022 Giro d’Italia will end with a 17-kilometer time, starting and finishing in Verona, in which the climb to Torricella Massimiliana could be decisive when it comes to unveiling who will wear the Maglia Rosa as champion on the podium in Verona.
