The route of the 2021 Giro d’Italia will be presented on Wednesday during a live television broadcast in Italy. Organiser RCS Sport is expected to unveil a route that starts and ends with individual time trials, and includes a stage on the Tuscan dirt roads as well as summit finishes on Monte Zoncolan, Campo Felice, and at Alpe di Mera, close to the Swiss border. 

The 104th edition of the corsa rosa will be held between Saturday May 8 and Sunday May 30. RCS Sport have already confirmed the first Grand Tour of the year will start in Turin with a flat nine-kilometre individual time trial around the city that seems perfect for world time trial champion Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers), who won all the time trials at the 2020 Giro.
