Giro 2022 Route stage 20: Belluno - Passo Fedaia
Saturday 28 May - The Giro's last mountain stage presents 168 kilometres with a total elevation gain of 4,490 metres. The riders are to conquer the Passo di San Pellegrino and Passo Pordoi before finishing at the Passo Fedaia. The last 5.4 kilometres go up at more than 11%.
The first 65 kilometres are not a reliable indicator of what’s in store – on the contrary, it’s the calm before the storm. Then the action gets going and the riders tackle San Pellegrino Pass. The 18.5 kilometres climb with a average gradient of 6.2% is ideally suited to stretch the legs.
The route descends onto a prolonged false flat that kicks up at the foot of the next test. The Pordoi Pass is similar to the previous climb, albeit shorter and somewhat steeper. The 11.8 kilometres ascent at 6.8% rises to an elevation of 2,239 metres, making it the Cima Coppi, or highest point of the entire Giro.
The Pordoi descent happens in two. The route evens out halfway before shortly kicking up – 2 kilometres at 5% – and continuing on descent to Savinèr di Laste at the foot of the finish climb.
The Fedaia Pass – or, Marmolada – totals 14 kilometres and averages 7.6%. The second half is the most trying part. After moving through Malga Ciapela the road climbs straight up the mountain at roughly 12% for almost 3 kilometres, while the rest of the route is almost as challenging with ramps hovering around 10%.
Another interesting read: favourites to win the race to the Passo Fedaia.
