The Giro d’Italia’s opening stages will be held in Italy in 2023, returning home after last year’s trip to Hungary, organisers announced on Wednesday.
Next year’s edition of the ‘Grande Partenza’ will be an 18.4-kilometre individual time trial along Italy’s Adriatic coast between Fossacesia Marina and Ortona, in the central Abruzzo region.
The second stage will stay in the region, a 204km run from Teramo to San Salvo which features relatively gentle climbs and will favour sprinters.
Riders will return to Abruzzo for the seventh stage which will host the first summit finish of next year’s Giro, at Campo Imperatore in the Gran Sasso d’Italia massif.
The route of the 2023 Giro will be unveiled next month in Milan.
Last year’s Giro was won by Jai Hindley, the first Australian ever to win the race.
