Having already unveiled a series of stages from the Corsa Rosa, here is the grand finale of the Giro d’Italia – an individual time trial finishing in Verona, inside the Verona Arena. This announcement completes the unveiling of the 105th Giro route, with 7 stages for sprinters, 6 hilly stages, 6 high mountain stages and 2 individual time trials. 3410.3 kilometers will be covered, with 51.000 meters of elevation. The Grande Partenza from Hungary on 6 May will be the fourteenth to take place from abroad. Verona will host the final stage of the Corsa Rosa for the fifth time. Verona and its magnificent Roman amphitheatre – the Arena – will host the grand finale of the Corsa Rosa. It will be the fifth time that the Giro ends in Verona, after the editions of 1981, 1984, 2010 and 2019: all individual time trials that crowned the successes in the GC of Battaglin, Moser, Basso and Carapaz.
The UCI ITT World Champion Filippo Ganna said: “The 2021 Giro d’Italia started in pink for me in Turin and finished in pink for the team with Egan Bernal: it would be nice to repeat that again next year. Whoever can take the lead of the GC after Budapest ITT will wear the Maglia Rosa for a few days. Then the final time trial with the arrival at the Verona Arena will be spectacular and decisive for crowning the winner. It will be a very interesting Giro”.
