EsCiclismo.com · Road Competition · 05/25/2024

The penultimate stage of the 2024 Giro d’Italia will be held today, Saturday, May 25, with a challenging 184-kilometer route between Alpago and Bassano del Grappa. This day promises to be crucial to finish defining the general classification beyond the first place of the Slovenian Tadej Pogacar (UAE Emirates).

The stage will start from Alpago, a town that serves as the gateway to the Belluno Dolomites. From here, cyclists will descend to Vittorio Veneto and face the first difficulty of the day on the Muro di Ca’ del Poggio, a short but steep climb that will lead them to the picturesque Prosecco area.

After crossing the Piave River, the peloton will head to the slopes of Monte Grappa, where they will twice face the challenging climb from Semonzo to Sacrario. This climb winds along 18.1 kilometers with an average slope of 8 percent and sections that reach 14.

Pogacar will leave again dressed in pink. The Slovenian leads the overall standings with a formidable advantage of 7 minutes and 42 seconds over the Colombian Daniel Felipe Martínez (Bora-Hansgrohe) and 8 minutes and 4 seconds over the Welshman Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers).

The start is scheduled for 11:40 a.m. (CEST) from Alpago, and the cyclists are expected to arrive in Bassano del Grappa around 5:15 p.m., concluding a day that promises to be exciting and decisive for the outcome of the Giro de Italy 2024.
