Giro d'Italia 2022

The Giro d'Italia or Tour of Italy is an annual multi-stage cycling race that just finished its 104th edition and is gearing up for its 105th edition in 2022. The Giro d'Italia 2022 is expected to take place from Saturday, May 7 to Sunday, May 29, 2022, as per its regular schedule. It is typically held in Italy as the season's opening Grand Tour, while sometimes begging or passing through other countries.

Since its first edition in 1909, the race has increased in prominence and popularity as a result of its length schedule, and the peloton has extended from mostly Italian riders to riders from all over the world. The Giro is one of cycling's renowned three-week-long Grand Tours, alongside the Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana. The Giro generally takes place in May, but it can sometimes extend into early June. It is a UCI World Tour event that runs typically as a 2.UWT event with several teams invited as wild cards.

The Route

While the route alters from year to year, the race format basically remains the same, with at least two-time trials and a passage through the Alps, including the Dolomites. Like the other Grand Tours, the contemporary editions of the Giro d'Italia usually consist of 21 stages spread out over 23 or 24 days, with two or three rest days in between.

The steep and challenging climbs make the Giro d'Italia one of the popular races for the riders. Each event includes a few stages with several complex climbs with high austerity. For example, the event typically passes through the mountains in the Alps and includes some of the most difficult climbs in the Dolomites. The Passo dello Stelvio, Passo Pordoi, and Passo di Gavia are three of the most renowned mountains utilized in the Giro.

A time trial is occasionally utilized as the penultimate or final stage, and a mountain time trial stage has been included in some editions. In modern Giros, the first stage is frequently a short trial, known as a prologue, to determine who will wear pink on an opening day. The riders ride the course in an unusual setup, racing in ten groups of thirteen and without having their time tallied against their overall time.

A few riders from each team compete for the overall victory, but there are three other contests that attract cyclists from all disciplines including points, mountains, and a classification for young riders with general classification ambitions. The general classification is the oldest of the four classifications. Each of the classifications has its own jersey worn by the leader. If a rider wins more than one classification, he wears the most prestigious classification's jersey, such as the pink jersey. The cyclist in second place in the competition wears the abandoned jersey.
