Giro d’Italia 2021: This is what cyclists can expect on the routes

The racing bike professionals aim high. The route at the Giro d’Italia is nothing for all racing drivers. Rather, several mountains and meters in altitude have to be conquered. The drive over the Dolomites should be particularly interesting. It is not without reason that the 16th stage is the queen stage. In one day it goes over the Passo Fedaia, the Passo Pordoi, the Passo Giau and over 212 kilometers to the final destination in Cortina d’Ampezzo. The other routes are tough too. We have summarized where to go in the following overview.

Giro d’Italia 2021 results current

+++ May 9th, 2021: Merlier wins second Giro stage – Ganna stays in pink +++

The Belgian Tim Merlier won the second stage of the 104th Giro d’Italia. The 28-year-old professional cyclist won the mass sprint on Sunday after 179 kilometers from Stupinigi to Novara in front of the two Italians Giacomo Nizzolo and Elia Viviani.

The pink jersey of the overall first is still worn by the Italian world champion Filippo Ganna, who won the opening time trial in Turin on Saturday. The German podium hopeful Emanuel Buchmann lost almost a minute to Ganna and a few seconds to the rivals in the overall standings in the fight against the clock.

On Monday, the sprinters could come back to the train. One mountain of the third and two climbs of the fourth category should be feasible for the fast men on the third section over 190 kilometers from Biella to Canale.

+++ May 8th, 2021: Buchmann starts 104th place in the Giro d’Italia – Ganna wins +++

The German hopeful Emanuel Buchmann started the Giro d’Italia only with a 104th place. The 28-year-old professional cyclist was 55 seconds slower than the Italian winner of the day and world champion Filippo Ganna in the opening time trial over 8.6 kilometers in Turin on Saturday. Buchmann, who is not one of the best time trialists, also lost important seconds compared to the class riders. Second and third place went to the Italian Edoardo Affini (0:10 minutes back) and the Norwegian Tobias Foss (0:13).

Buchmann, who was fourth overall in the Tour de France in 2019, wants to be the first German to get on the podium at the Tour of Italy. The profile suits the climbing specialist. More than 47,000 vertical meters have to be covered on the 3479.9 kilometer route from Turin to Milan.

On Sunday, the sprinters could first come into play. The second section over 179 kilometers from Stupinigi to Novara leads over flat terrain.

Teams and German drivers at the Giro d’Italia

Cyclist applies in advance Egan Bernal as a favorite for overall victory. But only if the Colombian is fit again after his injury. German drivers should also hope for good places. The former fourth in the Tour de France Emanuel Buchmann feels “ready” for the Giro d’Italia, which starts on Saturday, and goes into the three-week tour with great expectations. “The goal is the podium. The competition is strong and therefore it will be difficult to achieve this goal, but I think it is possible,” said the professional cyclist of the German press agency.

Buchmann took fourth place on the tour in 2019. Last year he went to the Tour of France after a serious fall and did not get above 38th overall. He has not yet given up his goal of being on the podium at the Tour. But this year it doesn’t make much sense. “When I saw the track for the first time, I was very disappointed. The Tour is my favorite race, it is and will be that way. But after the decision to go for the Giro, my whole focus was on this goal,” said Buchmann .

Due to the difficult profile, the Giro suits the 28-year-old. In the summer, the driver from the Bora-hansgrohe team wants to go to the Olympic Games. “The route in Tokyo suits me, and the Olympics are definitely a goal. But first comes the Giro,” said Buchmann. “Only then do I start thinking about what is still on the program for 2021.”
