Starting on Thursday, June 30, the 33rd edition of the Giro d'Italia Donne 2022 will kick off with a Grand Depart on the island of Sardinia.

The 10-day stage race crosses through five regions of Italy – Sardinia, Emilia-Romagna, Lombardy, Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto – for 1,002.6 kilometres of racing.

The 2022 Giro d'Italia Donne will be broadcast around Europe and the rest of the world, with two hours of live coverage of all 10 stages, and you can find out how to watch the race wherever you are with our handy guide and with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

The 2022 edition will begin on the island of Sardinia for the opening three days, first in Cagliari with a 4.7km individual time trial prologue, the only race against the clock for the event. 

There are two road stages before a rest day on July 3 to transfer to the mainland. 

The peloton will face various terrain that includes major hills in the Apennines, Alpes and Dolomites with three decisive mountainous days on stage 7: Prevalle to Passo Maniva, stage 8: Rovereto to Aldeno, and stage 9: San Michele All'Adige to San Lorenzo Dorsino, before the race concludes in Padova on July 10.

Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar), a two-time winner, thrives on challenging, high-altitude climbs and in time trials, so this Giro Donne suits her skills to a T. Contenders also include Italians Elisa Longo Borghini (Trek-Segafredo) and Marta Cavalli (FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope) and her teammate Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig, along with former podium finisher Amanda Spratt (BikeExchange-Jayco).

Cyclingnews will have coverage of all 10 stages of the Giro d'Italia Donne with race reports, galleries, results, and exclusive features and news.
