What is this race and why should I care about it?

It is the 105th edition of the Giro d’Italia, the first of the three grand tours to take place ahead of the Tour de France and Vuelta a España.

For many aficionados, the Giro is the greatest test a cyclist can face with the stages regularly being longer, higher and, very often, colder than those at the Tour, its better known and slightly older cousin.

When does the Giro d’Italia start?

This year’s Giro d’Italia gets under way with a 195-kilometre road stage from Budapest, Hungary, to Visegrad on Friday May 6, 2022.

How long is this year’s Giro d’Italia?

The opening grand tour of the season comprises 21 stages and will be contested over 3,437.6 kilometres – that’s 2,136 miles in old money – which is an average of 163.7km (101.7 miles) per day. The route also features 50,610 metres (166,043 feet) in altitude gain.

And when does the Giro d’Italia finish?

The Giro d’Italia concludes with the second and final individual time trial of the race on Sunday May 29. The race will end inside the Arena di Verona Festival, where Richard Carapaz sealed his overall victory back in 2019, following a 17.1km test through Verona.

What teams will ride the Giro d’Italia?

As with all WorldTour races, each team from the top-flight of professional cycling receive an invitation and in the case of the Giro d’Italia, all are contracted to race the first grand tour of the season.

In addition to the WorldTeams, Alpecin-Fenix qualified as the No 1 ranked ProTeam from 2021 while Arkéa-Samsic decided against racing despite qualifying as second best last season, allowing race organisers RCS to hand out three wild card entries to Bardiani-CSF-Faizane, Drone Hopper-Androni Giocattoli and Eolo-Kometa.
