Giro 2022 Route stage 4: Avola - Etna

Giro d'Italia 2022Tuesday 10 May - The Giro traverses Sicily on stage 4 to finish on Mount Etna. The 166 kilometres long race starts in Avola and features an elevation gain of 3,580 metres.

The Etna is the most included climb in the recent history of the Giro. After 2017, 2018 and 2020 it will be the fourth time that the riders ascend the active stratovolcano. On all occassions it was a breakaway rider who took the spoils, respectively Jan Polanc (2017), Esteban Chaves (2018) and Jonathan Caicedo (2020).

The Etna approach was different in all three instances though, while this year’s finish climb combines the ones of four and five editions ago. As in 2018, the first part of the climb is from from Ragalna and after moving through Nicolosi ascent continues on the same roads as in 2017. This way, the final toil adds up to 25.4 kilometres and the average gradient sits at 5.6%.
