2022 Giro d’Italia
May 6, 2022 - May 29, 2022
One of professional cycling’s three Grand Tours (along with the Tour de France and Vuelta a España), the 2022 Giro d’Italia (meaning Tour of Italy) is a 3 week long multiple-stage race held every year, primarily in Italy.
The 2021 pink jersey (maglia rosa), given to the General Clarification winner of the Giro d’Italia, was won by Colombia’s Egan Bernal of the Ineos Grenadiers who finished 1 minute 29 seconds ahead of Italy’s Damiano Caruso.
Where is the 2022 Giro d’Italia?
The Giro is predominantly held in Italy but has been known to pass through neighbouring countries such as San Marino, France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia and the Vatican City State.
The start of the Giro, known as the Grande Partenza takes place in a different town each year. It has become more common for the start of the Giro to be held outside of Italy to increase international international interest in the event.
The 2022 Grande Partenza will take place in Budapest in Hungary, the first time the country has hosted the event and the 14th time it has started outside of Italy. Budapest was due to host the Giro in 2020 but this was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
