Giro d'Italia 2021
The 104th Grande Partenza Giro d'Italia's is going to take place on Saturday, May 8 with an ITT in Turin. On Sunday, the 30th, the race aging finishes with an extreme ITT in Milan. The race will be run on the UCI Worldtour as a 2.UWT event. Despite the fact that it is primarily run in Italy, it often starts in or travels through other countries.
The race was held in 1909 for the first time to raise newspaper revenue for La Gazzetta dello Sport, and it is now managed by a subsidiary of that paper's owner. The race is really a historical competition and reflects the heritage of Italy.
The Giro d'Italia includes twenty-one stages, a prologue (an individual time trial of fewer than eight kilometers, and two or three rest days. It is one of the most prestigious three-week-long Grand Tours, including the Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana. In the Giro d'Italia, three types of stages are practiced: mass-start stages, individual time trials, and team time trials.
The 2021 Giro d'Italia will begin in the Piedmont region of northern Italy. In the first week, stage 1st is a 9-kilometer ITT in Turin, with a world time trial challenge to finish in the same location.
Stage 2 is almost exclusively on flat roads, ensuring a showdown between the first and second-place finishers in Novara. The third stage could see a select group sprint to the finish or a thriving attack. The second half of the road is lumpy, and the final hill is top-knotted after 5 kilometers. The route continues south, with many chances for trackers to shine along the way, including Cattolica, Termoli, and Foligno.
The second week launches with a Strade Bianche-style stage between Perugia and Montalcino on unpaved roads, before returning to Bagno di Romagna. This is followed by a flat race between Ravenna and Verona. Then it's on to the Monte Zoncolan, a 10.1 kilometers monster with 11.9 percent peaks reaching 22 percent.
Stage 14 will be the Zoncolan sprint, served by a bumpy test between Grado and Gorizia before stage 15. On the 16th stage, the riders will return to their origins as they travel through the Passo Pardoi, which reaches a height of 2,239 meters, to a downhill finish in Cortina d'Ampezzo.
For the final and last week of competition, a summit finish at the steep Sega di Ala is on the cards of 11.1 kilometers at 9.6 percent. After a 7.4-kilometer climb at 8.3 percent, the Alpe di Mera will serve as the summit finish for stage 19, while the final steep test will be a race with 4,200 vertical meters and a summit finish at the Alpe Motta. The Giro comes to an end with a time trial in Milan.
