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 perfect warm-up climb at shallow gradients towards the Villanova Caves and after the descent the Passo di Tanamea appears. Also, far from the hardest climb in the world – 12.1 kilometres at 4.6%.

Via de Ucja Pass the Giro enters Slovenia and after descending to Idrsko the Kolovrat presents the hardest test of the day. The 10.6 kilometres ascent averages 8.7%. The opener is especially daunting, as the first 4.5 kilometres virtually all of 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 Santuary of Castelmonte is 9 kilometres long and rises at 5.4%, although that average is biased by flat sections and even a short downhill. The last 1.5 kilometres feature several sections at double digits.
