The 2024 Giro d'Italia, celebrating its 107th edition, is set to begin in Turin on Saturday, May 4 and end in Rome with a circuit stage around the Colosseum on Sunday, May 26.
The route will cover 3,321.2 kilometres and 42,900 metres in vertical elevation across the 21 days of racing.
RCS Sport, organisers of the race, have designed a course that offers the peloton two time trials (of 37.2km and 31km), along with a Strade Bianche-style gravel stage 6 and six mountain top finishes.
Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) celebrated as the overall winner of the 2023 Giro d'Italia; however, he is unlikely to defend his victory, instead focusing fully on the Tour de France.
RCS Sport is hoping that the newly designed and balanced 2024 route will attract many of the sport's biggest names and overall contenders, including Tadej Pogačar.
