Giro Rosa 2021: The Route

Giro Rosa 2021Giro d'Italia Donne is the new name of the Giro Rosa. This Friday, the race begins with a TTT and the race finishes on Sunday 11 July. An uphill ITT and two mountain stages are likely to be decisive in terms of the GC.

The Giro d’Italia Donne opens with a team time trial of 26.7 kilometres. The route runs slightly uphill.

The 2nd stage is a hilly race with a huge finish climb. The Prato Nevoso is 13.9 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 6.9%.

The first part of stage 3 is flat before the riders enter a lumpy zone. The finale flies downhill onto a flat run-in to the finish line.

The GC is likely to receive a make over during stage 4, as it is an alpine ITT for climbing specialists.

On paper, the 5th stage is tailor-made for a sprint finish, while stage 6 is a long and hilly race around Lake Como. The last 45 kilometres are predominantly flat.

A hilly circuit race is on the cards in the 7th stage before it’s back to the sprinters on stage 8.

Probably, the GC will be decided on the ninth day of action. The 9th stage includes one intermediate climb before Monte Matajur serves as finish climb. The last 5.8 kilometres rise at 10.5% to the line.

The 10th stage is a circuit race with four hills. The last one peaks out with 9 kilometres remaining.
