Giro 2022 Route stage 19: Marano Lagunare - Castelmonte

Giro d'Italia 2022Friday 27 May - The 19th stage of the Giro travels in 178 kilometres from Marano Lagunare to the Sanctuary of Castelmonte. After three intermediate climbs the finish lies uphill.

After the start in the fishing village on the Marano Lagoon the riders head north to race flat roads for roughly 80 kilometres. Then they enter a short and sharp climb towards the Villanova Caves and after the descent the Passo di Tanamea appears, which is a 12.1 kilometres test at 4.6%.

Via de Ucja Pass the Giro enters Slovenia and after descending to Idrsko the Kolovrat presents the hardest climb of the day. The 10.3 kilometres ascent averages 9.2%. The opener is especially daunting, as the first 4.5 kilometres of the actual climb virtuall all go up at double digits. With 4 kilometres to climb 1 kilometre at 12% is another challenging part.

The Giro flies back to Italy on descent and after 10 kilometres on the flat the finish climb begins in Cividale del Friuli. The ascent to the Sanctuary of Castelmonte is 7.1 kilometres long and rises at 7.8%, although that average is biased by flat sections and even a short downhill. The last 2 kilometres feature several sections at double digits.

    Kolovrat actually means spinning wheel.

    As a Slovene, I would just play a little with the name of the hardest climb on this stage – Kolovrat… “Kolo” in Slovene means “Cycle” or “Bike”. “Vrat” is a “neck” or something above the shoulders… You can translate also as “”hold your bike for its neck”… So the steepness of this “hill” (almost 1000 m altitude) is something that will force the riders to push their bikes with their “shoulders” (handlebars) upwards :-))

    One more serious thing, when we have fun observing an supporting the riders… Just again in Slovenia, over the border of the stage finish at Santuario de Castelmonte, the most difficult ecological and health pollution far around (in Anhovo) is happening for decades. A cement factory is burning the huge amounts of “non-dangerous” waste from north Italy and Friuli… And people are dying for lung cancers… The capital is holding these people literary for their necks… And this happens together with our uncritical support of the professional sport masters… So, I propose that the priests there and cyclists and organizers give a mass for all these people (with Eurosport and RAI reports, too). I am sure, many cycling funs will attend, too…

    Regards, Milan
