Giro d'Italia

This is the page for the Giro d'Italia 2024. The 107th edition starts on May 4th in Northern Italy and finishes on May 28th with a sprint stage in Rome. The organization has opted for a notable light version of the Tour of Italy, with many sprint opportunities, not too many tough climbs, and thus a course where anything can happen.

The Giro d'Italia's opening weekend is shaping up to be quite exciting. Right from the start on day one, we're tackling the Superga and Colle Maddalena climbs, followed by a summit finish in Oropa on day two, a place Tom Dumoulin knows well. The third day features a challenging finale, setting the stage for an intense competition from the get-go.

The following days maintain this high level of challenge. We've got a sprint opportunity in Lucca, then it's off to Tuscany to traverse the famed white roads of the Strade Bianche. Day seven brings a time trial with a tough climb at the end. The Prato di Tivo marks the climax of the eighth stage, leading up to the second sprinters' showdown in Naples.

The first week is truly formidable and, after a rest day, the race takes a slightly more relaxed turn. The early days of the second week will see attackers and sprinters vying for stage victories. The general classification riders take the spotlight again on the fourteenth day with the second time trial of the race. This is followed by an exceptionally challenging mountain stage to Livigno the next day.

As usual, the third week is the most grueling part of the Giro. It kicks off with a mountain stage over the daunting Passo di Stelvio, but there's still a long journey ahead after this mammoth climb. On the seventeenth day, the riders face four significant cols, finishing uphill once again. After a stage that suits sprinters and breakaway specialists, the Giro's fate will likely be sealed on the twentieth day with two ascents of the steep Monte Grappa. Finally, the sprinters will have their day in Rome.
