Giro 2022 Route stage 2: Budapest - Györ

Giro d'Italia 2022Saturday 7 May - The 2nd stage of the 2022 Giro d'Italia is likely to travel from Budapest to Györ. The second Hungarian leg of 2022's first Grand Tour is likely to see a sprint finish. The route amounts to 193 kilometres.

The hardest climb of the day comes early. At kilometre 20 the riders crest the Svábvár in the Carpathian Mountains, which is an ascent of roughly 3 kilometer at 7%, mainly of interest for riders who are eyeing the first KOM jersey. Another picturesque climb leads around the halfway point to Gorba-tető, but – again – this is nothing special is terms of gradients. The last uphill leads to the Abbey of Pannonhalma, which is short and sharp climb before the last 25 kilometres are perfect to arrange the first Grand Tour bunch of 2020 sprint in Györ.

In last year’s Giro, Caleb Ewan won two sprint stages before he pulled out on stage 8. Two years ago, Arnaud Démare was in a class of his own. The Frenchman stormed to four sprint victories.
