The Giro d'Italia will start in Sardinia with three road stages. RCS Sport revealed details of the opening three stages at a presentation in Milan on Wednesday morning, where Fabio Aru — the first Sardinian to wear the maglia rosa at the Giro — was in attendance. It will be third time in the Giro's history that Sardinia has hosted the start of the race, after , when Philippe Casado won the opening stage, and , when Enrico Gasparotto wore the first maglia rosa after Liquigas won the team time trial in La Maddalena. The Giro's first visit to Sardinia came in , as the race marked the th anniversary of the unification of Italy. The Giro is the th edition of the race, and RCS Sport has planned a route that will visit as many of Italy's regions as possible to celebrate the occasion. In keeping with recent starts outside of the Italian mainland, the opening stage of the Giro will take place on a Friday, which allows for an additional rest day on Monday, May 8 as the Giro caravan transfers to the start of stage 4. The opening stage of the Giro is ostensibly one for the sprinters, even if race director Mauro Vegni warned that it is not a foregone conclusion that one of their number will wear the first pink jersey of the race.
Updated on May 25, by Kathryn Burrington. This May it will come to Sardinia for the first time in ten years. Inspired by the Tour de France, it was originally a clever marketing ploy to promote the newspaper, La Gazzetta dello Sport, and has been held every year ever since, with the exception of the war years. In May the race returns to Sardinia for the fourth time in its history, kicking off in Alghero and ending in Cagliari. It is split into three stages, over three days. The last ascent climbs up to the lovely village of San Pantaleo , before heading back to the coast and an anticipated sprint finish in Olbia.
To celebrate properly this edition, the management has organized a route that will cover many Italian regions. This is the third time that the Giro has started in this astonishing island of Mediterranean Sea and undoubtedly it was a success in the previous editions. All three stages are suitable mainly for sprinters and finisseurs. The first stage of the route will pass through Alghero and the northern roads of the island to Olbia characterized by an endless sequence of ups and downs. The last part of the route culminates in a kilometre climb ideal to finisseurs in a way that they can anticipate the actions of the sprinters who, in turn, will be favorited for the final sprint in Olbia. On the second day of the tour the cyclists will be busy once again in a mountain stage which involves ups and downs through the villages of Orune, Bitti and towards Nuoro downtown with a final sprint.
It will be the third time the island has welcomed the race, the most recent occasion being in , when the Giro started there. Previously, it hosted Stage 4 of the edition, another landmark year as the race marked the th anniversary of the unification of Italy. I hope that this important event will kickstart in Sardinia a competitive cycling movement able to organise many races at all age levels, allowing young riders to grow. Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door.
Saturday, 6 May — Stage 2 in the Giro d'Italia leads over a number of passes in Sardinia's interior. The riders head south on gently climbing roads to arrive in Orune. A drop leads to the foot of the climb to Nuoro, where the front group will battle it out for the KOM points. By then, we are halfway the route of stage 2 in the Giro. Following the descent the roads start to go up again from Lago del Cedrino all the way to Genna Silana, a mountain pass on the east side of Sardinia. From lake to the highest point, the climb totals
