The countdown to the Grande Partenza of the 105th Giro d’Italia, which will start on May 6 from Budapest (Hungary), has begun.
A special Tissot countdown was inaugurated this morning in Hősök tere (Heroes’ Square) in Budapest, in the exact place where the first stage of the 2022 Corsa Rosa will start.
The Grande Partenza of the 105th Giro d’Italia will feature three stages in Hungary. It begins on Friday, May 6 with the Budapest-Visegrád stage (195km). Then, on Saturday May 7, a 9.2 km individual time trial through the heart of Budapest. The last stage in Hungary will take place on Sunday May 8 from Kaposvár to Balatonfüred (201km), on the shores of Balaton Lake and is likely to be one for the sprinters. Both the first and the second stages will start from Heroes’ Square. The riders will then transfer to Italy and, on Monday 9, the Corsa Rosa will observe its first rest day.
