Giro 2019 Route stage 2: Bologna - ???

Sunday, 12 May 2019 - Following the ITT on the Giro's first day of action the race leaves Bologna in the 2nd stage. The destination has yet to be announced, although is has been confirmed that the route will go south.

The Giro-Bologna love affair cooled off in recent years, but with 2019’s Grande Partenza pink vibes are once again in the air in the city of Etruscan Origin. Following the ITT to the Santuario della Madonna di San Luca on the first day of action, the riders now head south.

The last time the Giro moved through Bologna was in 2014. The stage went to an uphill finish in Sestola and Cadel Evans took the win. For the last finish in Bologna we have to go back to 2009. The race started in Campi Bisenzio and a group of fourteen escapees were fighting for the stage honours. Simon Gerrans opened up a gap in the last kilometre of the Colle della Guardia – which is the final climb of this edition’s Grande Partenza stage – to win 12 seconds ahead of Rubens Bertogliati.
