The Grande Partenza of the 103rd Giro d’Italia is in Budapest. The city never before hosted Grand Tour. The 1st stage will be an ITT of 9.5 kilometres before the race continues with two opportunities for the sprinters.
Reportedly, the Giro will continue with three days on Sicily after the Grande Partenza in Hungary. Also rumoured are a passage over the Gavia and a summit finish at the Zoncolan.
One of the stages on Sicily is supposed to be a 27 kilometres time trial on Mount Etna. The last 8.7 kilometres are said to be unpaved with a finish at an altitude of 2,850 metres.
Already confirmed is a stage start at the Rivolto Air Base to honour the 60th anniversary of the Frecce Tricolori. This aerobatic squad gave air-shows in the the Giro’s of 2009 and 2014.
