Otto I. Eovaldi

The Giro d’Italia organisers announced the 2021 route this week, revealing a course bookended by two time trials – one only 9km, the other 29.4km – but with six mountain finishes, seven other mountainous days of racing, and a total of almost 47,000 meters of vertical gain.

The route also includes a tough stage to Montalcino that takes in the white gravel roads made famous by Strade Bianche, a massive stage 16 with three high-altitude climbs, and an arduous third week of racing that ratchets up the pressure, culminating in another tough mountain finish on stage 20.
