102ND GIRO D'ITALIA ROUTE

The 102nd edition of the Giro d’Italia will start from Bologna on 11 May and finish in Verona on 2 June. With 3,518.5 km of racing packing in 46,500 meters of total elevation, this edition is one of the hardest courses in recent years.

The Big Start from the Emilia-Romagna capital city and the finish in Verona with its ‘traditional’ arrival in the Arena, are both ITTs. The Cima Coppi (highest mountain of the Giro) will be the Gavia Pass at 2,618 metres above sea level; the Mortirolo will be this edition’s Montagna Pantani; and the Bartali stage will be the Bologna-Fucecchio. Homage will be paid to Fausto Coppi in the centenary of his birth with the finish in Novi Ligure and the Cuneo-Pinerolo stage. The challenging route will once more be well balanced, featuring no fewer than 3 individual time trials and a host of climbs, some making their debuts while other legendary passes remain.
