The Giro d’Italia 2022 marks its 105th year, and for the first time, the Grande Partenza kick-off starts from Eastern Europe. After moving swiftly through Hungary, riders will continue their 3,410-kilometre journey beneath the shadow of Sicily’s Mount Etna, where they’ll endeavour to sprint through hills, mountains and valleys up the spine of the Italian peninsula before reaching the finish line in Verona.
