Giro Women 2024: The Route

Giro d'Italia Women 2024The Giro d'Italia Women, previously known as the Giro Rosa, includes eight stages. This Sunday, the race kicks off with an individual time trial in Brescia and finishes the following Sunday with a mountain stage to L'Aquila.

The women’s Giro kicks off with an individual time trial of 15.7 kilometres. Apart from a 900 metres hill at 4.7%, the route is flat.

Stage 2 is tailor-made for the sprinters. The race south of Lake Garda is 110 kilometres long and features 450 metres of climbing.

The 3rd stage is another flat affair until the profile changes dramatically in the finale. The race finishes on a 12.5 kilometres climb with an average gradient of 4.9%. The steepest section at 12% comes 600 metres before the finish line.

The riders tackle 1,500 meters of climbing over a 134 kilometres route in the 4th stage. Almost all climbing is crammed inside the last 55 kilometres. The finish is situated on a punchy climb – 500 metres at 7.8%.

Another sprint finish is expected on the fifth day of the Giro d’Italia Women. The route of stage 5 is gently rolling with no major challenges.

The longest stage is a 159 kilometres journey on hilly terrain. The riders are set to conquer roughly 2,000 metres of climbing over a total of eleven climbs. Interesting finale, featuring a punchy climb and then a final kilometre at 3.4%.

The Queen Stage serves up 3,600 metres of climbing over a 120 kilometres route. The riders face a double ascent of the Blockhaus – first in the run-up to the finale, and then as the finishing climb. The Blockhaus is a 16.5 kilometres ascent averaging 7.9%.

At 117 kilometres, the final stage features 2,500 metres of climbing. Most of the climbing takes place in the first part of the race, but the finale throws in two more punchy hills and an uphill finish.
