Giro 2019 Route stage 21: ITT in Verona
Sunday 2 June - The Giro d'Italia is set to finish with an out-and back ITT of 17 kilometres in Verona. The city’s Roman amphitheatre hosts the finish of the first Grand Tour of 2019, while the route takes in an intermeditate climb of 4.5 kilometres at 4.6%.
The 1984 and 2010 Giro d’Italia finished in similar style with Francesco Moser and Ivan Basso winning the maglia rosa. The ITT on the last day of action takes in an intermediate climb on the Via Torricelle. With its gradients fairly steady the ascent slopes for 4.5 kilometres at 4.6%. The intermediate time check is at the summit – kilometre 9.5 – before a descent along wide roads leads to the finish in the Arena.
Verona is the hometown of Romeo and Juliet.
Including this 17 kilometres of time trialing, the route of the 2019 Giro d’Italia takes in almost 60 kilometres against the clock. Most of it is on lumpy or even mountainous terrain, so climbers are given a chance to limit their losses.
