The Giro d’Italia route has been unveiled.
The Giro d’Italia will start from Sardinia and return to the Italian peninsula after two stages in Sicily. The final stage will see the peloton arrive in Milan for the 76th time, on 28 May. This year’s race features many stages in the south of the country, creating a journey through an Italy that is yet to be discovered by the Giro.
The Corsa Rosa will pay tribute to many former champions (Bartali, Coppi, Pantani, to name just a few) and places that have shaped the history of the country, and will maintain a special focus on the spirit of solidarity.
The race will include six sprint stages, eight stages of medium difficulty climbing, five highly testing climbing stages and two individual time trials (for a total of 67.2km) including the stage that will close the 100th Giro, from the famous Monza racetrack to the Milan Cathedral. The iconic Stelvio Pass is the 2017 Cima Coppi.
