Giro 2022 Route stage 12: Parma - Genua

Giro d'Italia 2022Thursday 19 May - Stage 12 on the Giro d'Italia is a race of 186 kilometres long through the middle mountains. After cresting several peaks in the second half of the route the finale is a descent into Genua.

The Giro visited Genua for the last time in 2015. It was a flat stage that culimated in a bunch sprint. Elia Viviani took the flowers.

A bunch sprint is highly unlikely this time. The riders set off from Parma to enter an sheer endless false flat in the first 100 kilometres. Then they reach the highest points of the day, Passo del Bocco, at 957 metres.

The second half of the route is more diverse. After plunging down to the coast, the riders turn northward in Chiavari. They tackle the ascent to Ruta and the Monte Becco before the finale is a 15 kilometres downhill into Genua.
