Thursday 26 May 2022 – The 18th stage of the Giro will start from Borgo Valsugana and will end in Treviso.
With a distance of 146 km and an altitude difference of 570 m, it will be the last compact group sprint of the Giro 2022.
The stage will start from Borgo Valsugana, will continue towards Grigno and will reach the historic Stairs of Primolano, gateway to the Piave valley. He will then cross the Prosecco production area between Valdobbiadene and Refrontolo and will tackle the last roughness of the route: the short Muro di Ca ‚del Poggio. Finally the Treviso plain, the last circuit before the final sprint.
A unique emotion for all cycling lovers and beyond. The last appearance of Valsugana at the Giro d’Italia dates back to 1 June 2019, when Fausto Masnada was the first to cross the top of Passo Manghen, Cima Coppi 2019.
