The first three stages of next year’s Giro d’Italia, which starts in Hungary on May 9, have been revealed by organisers today.
The 103rd edition will kick off with a 9.5 km individual time-trial in Budapest, followed by a 193km stage to Györ. The third stage will consist of a 197km route from Székesfehérvár to Nagykanizsa.
Stage one (Budapest) 9.5km individual time-trial
The time-trial will be flat during the first part and slightly uphill towards the end.
Stage two (Budapest to Györ) 193km
This stage will be suited to sprinters with a finish on the city boulevards.
Stage three (Székesfehérvár to Nagykanizsa) 197km
The route will be mostly flat with slight, but mild, undulations. It will take riders on flat terrain to approach the finish.
