The 2022 Giro d'Italia spans 3,410km (2,114 miles) across 21 stages, including two individual time trials, six mountain stages (four of which end with summit finishes), six "hilly" stages that appear ideal for breakaways, seven days that should end in field sprints, and three rest days.

The race begins in Hungary with three stages, beginning on Friday with a 195km road stage from Budapest to Visegrád, with an uphill finish that should make for an exciting sprint. Stage 2 features the Giro's first individual time trial (ITT) with a 9-kilometer course. A 2km city circuit that visits Pest and Buda on opposite sides of the Danube. Stage 3 is 201 kilometers long and runs from Kaposvár to Balatonfüred, with a flat finish that should produce the race's first pure field sprint. A rest day on Monday allows the race to fly from Hungary to Sicily, where two stages await, including a Stage 4 summit finish on Mount Etna, the first of four mountaintop finishes this year.

At the end of the first week, the race heads north with three tough stages: Stage 7, a lumpy stage with four categorized climbs and nearly 4,500 meters of elevation gain; Stage 8, a short stage with five hilly finishing circuits around Naples; and Stage 9. a high mountain trek through the Apennines culminating in the climb to Blockhaus, one of the Giro's longer and steeper climbs this year The Giro's true contenders should emerge by the summit.

The second week starts along the Adriatic coast and travels north, then west through Emilia-Romagna for Stages 10 and 11. Stage 12 begins in Parma and ends in Genova along the Mediterranean; Stage 13 begins in Sanremo, which is famous for hosting the finish of the season's first one-day Monument, Milano-Sanremo. These stages appear to favor sprinters and breakaway specialists on paper.

The real action should take place on Stages 14 and 15, which will conclude the Giro's second week. Stage 14 takes riders from Santena to Trentino on a short but intense ride that includes two-and-a-half laps of a challenging circuit with five categorized climbs. Stage 15 takes the race into the Western Alps, with two First Category climbs followed by a Second Category climb to the summit finish in Cogne. It is not the most difficult summit finish of the Giro, but there will be time gaps after two weeks of racing. Only a few riders should be in contention to win the race overall at this point.

The Giro always saves its most difficult stages for the final week, and this year is no exception. The week begins with two mountain stages (Stages 16 and 17), which aren't true summit finishes but could be because their finish lines are both less than 10 kilometers downhill from the First Category summits at the end of each stage.

Even with an ITT on Stage 21, the race should come down to Stage 20, a classic Dolomites mountain stage that is easily the hardest in this year's race. This stage, which concludes with a trio of classic summits—the Passo San Pellegrino, the Passo Pordoi (this year's highest climb), and the Passo Fedaia—should blow the race apart and, most likely, determine the Giro's final champion.

And, just in case, Stage 21's 17km individual time trial in Verona will put an end to things for good.

What happened the previous year

Egan Bernal (INEOS Grenadiers) of Colombia won the 2021 Giro d'Italia after capturing the pink jersey on Stage 9 and defending it until the finish in Milan. Bernal's victory, despite wearing the maglia rosa for 13 days, was far from easy. The Colombian, who also won the 2019 Tour de France, had a few difficult days during the Giro's third week. Bernal might not have won his second Grand Tour without the help of his teammates, particularly fifth-place finisher Daniel Martinez.

Damiano Caruso (Bahrain-Victorious) of Italy finished second, and Simon Yates (Team BikeExchange) of the United Kingdom finished third. Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) of Slovakia won the Points Classification, Geoffrey Bouchard (AG2R Citroen Team) of France won the King of the Mountains Classification, and Bernal, 24 at the time, was named the Giro's Best Young Rider. INEOS Grenadiers was the best team in the Giro, with two riders finishing in the top five overall and winning four stages.

Riders to keep an eye on

Three of the last four Tours of Italy have been won by INEOS-Grenadiers (formerly Team Sky), including the last two in a row. However, neither of the previous two winners, Bernal (2021) or Tao Geoghegan Hart (2020), will compete in this year's edition. Instead, the team looks to Ecuador's reigning Olympic road race champion, Richard Carapaz, to lead the way. Carapaz won the Giro in 2019 for Movistar and has since finished second in the Tour of Spain (2020) and third in the Tour de France (2021) for INEOS. He is the overwhelming favorite.

Last year's third-place finisher, Yates (Team BikeExchange-Jayco), who recently took two impressive stage wins at the Vuelta Asturias, and Portugal's Joo Almeida (UAE Team Emirates), who finished sixth in 2020, fourth in 2021, and looks ready to challenge for the overall win, should be his toughest competitors.

Other contenders for the General Classification include Spain's Mikel Landa (Bahrain-Victorious), who always looks the part but falls victim to bad luck or crashes, and France's Romain Bardet (Team DSM), a two-time Tour de France podium finisher who's revitalized his career with the Dutch team. and Tom Dumuolin (Jumbo-Visma) of the Netherlands, who returns to the race he won in 2017 as more of a dark horse than a favorite.

However, there is life after the Giro's GC contenders. Cavendish (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) returns to the Giro for the first time in nine years. We're hoping Cav wins a few stages and earns a spot on his team's Tour de France squad, which means we'll get one more chance to see him attempt to break the Tour record for most stage wins.

Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux), one of the season's biggest revelations, will also make his Grand Tour debut at the Giro. When he won Ghent-Wevelgem in March, he became the first African to win a Belgian classic, and now he wants to win a stage at the Giro. (He's our pick to win Stage 1 and claim the first pink jersey of the race.) )

Speaking of classics, Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) of the Netherlands makes his Giro debut as well. After missing the last two Tours of Flanders due to a back injury, the Dutchman hopes to use the Giro to lay a solid foundation for his goals later in the season. (Not that it was visible.) )

Last but not least, several North Americans are expected to compete in the 2022 Giro, including the USA's Joe Dombrowski (Astana), who won a stage last year (before crashing out the next day), Will Barta (Movistar), who is assisting Alejandro Valverde in his final Giro ride, and Lawson Craddock (Team BikeExchange-Jayco). who is hoping to assist Yates in his quest to finally win it

Alexander Cataford (Israel-Premier Tech) of Canada will also compete in Budapest. The 28-year-old has started two Grand Tours but has yet to complete one, so keep an eye on his progress as the race enters its second and third weeks.
