Giro d’Italia 2022, Route Presentation and Favorites Fourteenth Leg: Santena – Turin (147 km)

Step not to be underestimated the number 14 of Giro d’Italia 2022. Even if it will be only 147 kilometers that the group will have to face in the Santena – Turin, in fact, there will be pitfalls during this day, which will give the runners very little breath by proposing a track with five GPM (plus several other short climbs) and about 3000 meters in altitude. A fraction, this, in which surprises could be around the corner and where anything could happen, although obviously a lot will depend on how the men of the classification will choose to interpret the race considering the uphill arrival of the following day. However, the chances of witnessing two races in one are good: the first for the stage victory, with the fugitives as protagonists, the second for the general.

Route Fourteenth Stage Giro d’Italia 2022

It will therefore be Santena, famous for guarding the tomb of Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour, to host the start of this stage, which will propose a flat road only in the first 35 kilometers after the start, along which Chieri will touch and then approach Turin from the north-east. Once in Sambuy, a fraction of the municipality of San Mauro Torinese, the first ascent of the day will be approached, The Pilonetto (6.4 km at 5.4%, max. 12%), one of the slopes of Superga, over the hill which will return towards Chieri before turning again for the Piedmontese capital, where you will enter the final circuit after having climbed the climb which leads to the Remembrance Park. Having already entered the circuit, therefore, the group will descend towards the Lungo Po, but first they will have to face the short stretch of the Parco del Nobile, which will be covered two more times during the stage, the last of which less than six kilometers from the end. .

Shortly thereafter, we will therefore cross the finish line for the first time Turin (located in Corso Moncalieri), a passage that will mark the entry into the second half of the race and the beginning of the first of the two laps of the final circuit of 36.5 kilometers, which 2000 meters later will see the riders also pass through the intermediate sprint located in front of the Monument of Fausto Coppi. At that point, the road will rise again by climbing another side of Superga, Bric del Duca, which apart from the last stretch is the same climb that is usually tackled in the Milan-Turin. 5000 meters long, this climb will offer an average gradient of 8.6% (with peaks at 14%) and could be the scene of several attacks, especially during the second lap.

After a short descent and a slightly undulating stretch, here comes the third GPM of the day, the Colle della Maddalena, a shorter and apparently less demanding climb (3.5 km at 8.1%) than the previous one, but which will actually have gradients that, in the first 1500 meters, will even reach 20%. This harder initial segment, however, will be followed by a short downhill stretch, with the last kilometer then back up to 6.5%. At the top there will therefore be only twelve kilometers to go to the finish, almost all of them downhill (in some points even quite difficult) apart from the aforementioned tear of the Parco del Nobilewhich in the last lap will be over the hill at 4000 meters from the conclusion shortly after passing the second flying finish line.

A short but intense stage will be experienced today by the riders who, altitude in hand, will certainly try to start from afar in large numbers. With five GPMs scheduled, albeit not very rich, the fight to escape even for the points for the blue jersey. We could review ahead Lennard Kämna (BORA-hansgrohe), winner on Etna, as well as Koen Bouwman (Jumbo-Visma), who in turn won in Potenza. We have seen the fittest riders more or less already try to escape, among these they stand out Davide Formolo (UAE Team Emirates), Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) e Mauro Schmid (QuickStep Alpha-Vinyl).

In view of the tougher stages, we could also see the out-of-league climbers try form. The most interesting names are those of Giulio Ciccone (Trek-Segafredo), Santiago Buitrago (Bahrain Victorious), David de la Cruz, Joe Dombrowski (Astana) e Tobias Foss (Jumbo-Visma), but above all that of the great disappointment of the Blockhaus: Simon Yates (BikeExchange-Jayco). The British is holding firm and this could be the stage of the relaunch for him, taking into account that he will have enough space on the part of the big names. Attention then to those who want to try to take advantage of an arrival of this type to improve their ranking, above all Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), but also Wilco Kelderman (BORA-hansgrohe), who, however, must play as a team with his teammates who precede him in the standings, Alejandro Valverde (Movistar), Jan Hirt (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert), Hugh Carthy (EF Education-EasyPost) e Lorenzo Fortunato (EOLO-Kometa).

Then there will be the race within the race, with the big names who will certainly want to put in difficulty Juan Pedro Lopez (Trek-Segafredo) to take off the Maglia Rosa. The most aggressive will be the INEOS Grenadiers led by Richard Carapaz. Together with him they will be ready to attack too Joao Almeida (UAE Team Emirates), Jai Hindley and Emanuel Buchmann (BORA-hansgrohe), Guillaume Martin (Cofidis), Mikel Landa (Bahrain-Victorious) e Domenico Pozzovivo (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert).

Other runners who can be considered dangerous for stage success are Lucas Hamilton (BikeExchange-Jayco), Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), dangerous in any situation, Ivan Sosa (INEOS Grenadiers), Alessandro de Marchi (Israel-Premier Tech), Thomas de Gendt (Lotto Soudal), Antonio Pedrero (Movistar) and the Blue Jersey Diego Rosa (EOLO-Kometa), even if he will probably wait for more important stages with GPM to try again the escape.

Challenging stages that do not include an uphill finish are always treacherous because they are difficult to control. Two Superga climbs are not to be underestimated, and if the race were to explode especially along the first lap, we will see some good ones. Finally, the descent that from Colle della Maddalena leads to Turin city will be further decisive, with the riders who will not be able to afford distractions.
