Giro 2024 Route stage 21: Rome - Rome

Giro d'Italia 2024Sunday 26 May - The riders leave the city for an outing to Lido di Castel Fusano on the Tyrrhenian Sea. It's 16 kilometres one way and another 16 kilometres back before the Giro enters its finishing circuit.

The finishing circuit is 9.5 kilometres long. It resembles last year’s lap through the eternal city, but it’s not a carbon copy, although its essence is the same – flat.

It’s the third Rome finish in the last seven editions of the Giro d’Italia. In 2018, Sam Bennett outgunned Elia Viviani and Jean-Pierre Drucker in Rome, while Chris Froome also crossed the line celebrating. The four-time Tour de France winner won the Giro of 2018, not knowing that it would be his last ever victory in a cycling contest.

Another iconic rider took the spoils last year. Mark Cavendish sprinted to triumph on the Via dei Fori Imperiali in commanding style, while Primoz Roglic sealed the GC victory.

The second and third intermediate sprint come with time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line.
