Giro 2024 Route stage 1: Turin - Turin

Giro d'Italia 2024Saturday 4 May - The Giro dÍtalia opens with a 136 kilometres long race featuring three climbs. Both start and finish are in Turin.

Or, actually, the start is in one of Turin’s most enchanting suburbs, Venaria Reale. The finish will be in the city centre and the riders tackle three climbs. After roughly 50 kilometres the first KOM points are available on the Berzano di San Pietro and almost 30 kilometres later the Superga throws in 4.9 kilometres of climbing at an average gradient of 9.1%.

The last climb of the day appears after the first passage on the line. The Colle della Maddalena is 6.1 kilometres long and slopes at 7.4%. It’s almost 30 kilometres from the summit to the finish line Turin’s city centre and the first half runs downhill.

It’s the second Grande Partenza in Turin in four years time. In 2021, the pink caravan set off from fourth largest city in Italy with an individual time trial. Filippo Ganna took the first maglia rosa in tha edition ahead of Edoardo Affini and Tobias Foss.

Turin was also included in 2022. The 14th stage was a demanding hilly race with several passages through town before finishing there as well. Simon Yates took the spoils that day. The Superga and Colle della Maddalena were also tackled, but from another side.

The second intermediate sprint comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while the first three riders on the line gain 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
