2010 Giro d'Italia Stages


Damiano Cunego summed up the race as, "A very classic Tour of Italy in the final week that has the difficult, and Legendary, mountain stages." These include: Mortirolo, Zoncolan, Monte Grappa, Plan de Corones and Gavia (Cima Coppi), and others in between! It will be a shattering week.


There will be three time trials (TT) And one team time trial (TTT).


Regarding Stage 11, race director Angelo Zomegnan said, "President Napolitano asked us not to leave the people affected by the earthquake alone so we will go there."


Verona will indeed host the the Giro finish but contrary to rumors will also begin in Verona.
