Riders will then head into the 19th stage tomorrow — a short but undulating mountain stage with a fair amount of climbing, including the Passo di San Boldo.

Below you’ll find all the information you need to follow the latest news and racing.

The 2019 Giro d’Italia

The 102nd edition of the race will cover 21 stages and a monstrous 3,518.5km of riding over 23 days, which includes several summit finishes, three individual time trials, five ‘high difficulty’ stages, and a few flat stages.

This year’s route will be a challenging one, with a good balance between time trials and mountain stages. It’s packed with climbs, some of which are brand new, while others are iconic, such as the Gavia and Mortirolo.
