The 2021 Giro d’Italia race track has been revealed by the organizing company RCS. The Italian Grand Tour begins in Turin with a 9km time trial and ends again three weeks later with an anticlockwise stage. On the final day, riders individually ride a 29.4-kilometer time trial from Senago to Milan.

It was already known that the Giro would stay in the Piedmont region for the first three days. On the way, the memory of, among other things, the death of the Italian poet and writer Dante Alighieri was commemorated this year for 700 years. Stage 13 takes Peloton in his memory from Ravenna, where Alighieri is buried, to Verona.

Rumors that the Italy tour will hit the streets of Strade Bianche this year are true. The eleventh stage (with 2,200 vertical meters) moves from Perugia to Montalcino and has several unpaved divisions in the final stage. One day later, the start will be where you finish Strade Bianche. Siena’s Piazza del Campo is the starting point for a trip to Bagno di Romagna, which is dedicated to former cyclists Alfredo Martini and Gino Bartale.

Zoncolan at Passo Pardoi
The first five-star stage in Giro 2021 will be Monte Zoncolan on May 22. The legendary ascent was the last time on the tour in 2018, when Chris Fromm won. Zoncolan is one of the toughest rises in Europe, due to the gradient averaging over 10%, with peaks well above 20%. This year it will rise from Sotrio.

The highest mountain in version 104 of the Giro d’Italia, also called Sima Kobe, Is Passo Pardoi, with its summit at 2,239 meters above sea level. Pardoi is part of the Dolomite Theater to the Cortina d’Ampezzo on the penultimate weekend. Passo Fedaia and Passo Giau are also included in that mountainous stage.

Slovenia and Switzerland
Incidentally, the Pink Circus also makes two short trips outside the country. Stage 15 from Grado to Gorizia partially crosses the Slovenian territory, but ends on the Italian side of the border. The penultimate stage from Verbania to Valle Spluga / Alp Motta passes largely through Switzerland.

As for the rest, Giro would remain mainly in northern and central Italy. Guardia Sanframundi in Benevento County, last place on Stage 8, is the southerly point on that lap.
