Giro d’Italia 2022 – Six key stages

With just over 26 kilometres in total on the 2022 route, the Giro d’Italia has the lowest amount of time trialling since 1962, which at first glance makes the race one which favours the climbers. But perhaps a closer analysis suggests that it’s all-rounders, not out-and-out mountain specialists, who are going to benefit the most from the profile of the this year’s race.

For one thing, the number of consecutive mountain stages is relatively minimal, with the only triptych of days in the Alps and/or Dolomites coming at the end of the second week and start of the third. As such the climbing challenges will be broken by the second rest day, and will be all the easier as a result. Secondly, there are a plethora of hilly stages in the second week and that in turn lends itself to a degree of invention from those willing to test the waters in places beyond the set-piece GC stages.
