Giulio Ciccone (Trek-Segafredo) took a solo victory on stage 15 of the Giro d’Italia.

Ciccone kicked away from Santiago Buitrago (Bahrain-Victorious) and Hugh Carthy (EF Education-EasyPost) on the lower slopes of the day’s grinding summit finish to grab the third Giro stage of his career.

Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) and the GC contenders rumbled to the line together, more than seven minutes behind the leaders. After an explosive race Saturday, the battle for pink went on pause Sunday with no significant changes to the top-five overall.

Giro d’Italia stage 14: Simon Yates bounces back with solo stage win as GC standings reshuffle

Simon Yates (BikeExchange-Jayco) won stage 14 of the Giro d’Italia after a well-timed attack with just under 5km to go.

Overnight leader Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo) finally lost his grip on the pink jersey after being dropped by a searing acceleration from Carapaz at around 30km to go.

Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) won stage 13 at the Giro d’Italia on Friday in what was the last chance for the fast finishers in this year’s race.

Démare fended off a messy sprint to win for the third time this Giro. Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious) was second, and Mark Cavendish (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) was third.

Giro d’Italia stage 12: Stefano Oldani sprints from three-up break to score first pro win

Stefano Oldani (Alpecin-Fenix) outsprinted Lorenzo Rota (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert) at the Giro d’Italia for his first pro win Thursday.

Giro d’Italia stage 11: Alberto Dainese delivers Italy’s first stage in tight bunch sprint

Alberto Dainese (Team DSM) won a hotly contested bunch sprint for stage 11 Wednesday at the Giro d’Italia.

Groupama-FDJ took control with one kilometer to go, and it came down to another tight sprint. Dainese won his first grand tour stage and Italy, and Team DSM won its first stage so far in this Giro.

Giro d’Italia stage 10: Biniam Girmay dashes to historic victory in wild finale

Biniam Girmay made history on stage 10 of the Giro d'Italia after claiming the stage from a reduced bunch sprint.

Girmay opened up early and held off a late challenge from Mathieu van der Poel to win the stage, a first by an Eritrean rider and the first by a Black African rider in a grand tour.

Earlier in the stage both Mark Cavendish and Caleb Ewan were dropped on the rolling terrain with less than 30 riders eventually contesting the sprint. Richard Carapaz crashed but came back with a late attack, while Simon Yates and Hugh Carthy both made moves off the front. Van der Poel also attacked inside the final 5km but he was brought back before Girmay took a historic win.

Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo) retained his maglia rosa.

Giro d’Italia: Jai Hindley takes major stage 9 win on Blockhaus as GC takes shape

Jai Hindley (Bora-Hansgrohe) came through an epic stage at the Giro d'Italia to win stage 9 atop Blockhaus. The Australian was dropped twice on the final climb but returned to the front of the race before edging out Romain Bardet and Richard Carapaz to win the stage.

Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo) retained his maglia rosa but Simon Yates (BikeExchange-Jayco) and Wilco Kelderman (Bora-Hansgrohe) both dropped out of contention in the overall standings.

Giro d’Italia stage 8: Thomas De Gendt takes sensational win from the break

Thomas De Gendt claimed the second Giro d'Italia stage of his long and glittering career with a fine win in Naples on stage 8 of the 2022 race. The Belgian was part of a large breakaway but was still in contention when a five-man move went clear in the closing stages of the race.

De Gendt was simply too powerful for his remaining companions and took a comprehensive win in the sprint to ease the pressure on Lott0 Soudal in this year's race.

The race continues on stage 9 with a summit finish at Blockhaus with the race expected to be shaken up dramatically ahead of the second rest day.

Giro d’Italia stage 7: Koen Bouwman wins from remnants of break

Koen Bouwman (Jumbo-Visma) won stage 7 of the 2022 Giro d’Italia from the remnants of the breakaway, distancing Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) and Davide Formolo (UAE Team Emirates) in the closing, steep uphill final meters. Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo) retained his overall lead in the race heading into stage 8. The stage, which starts and finishes in Naples, should come down to a bunch sprint.

Giro d’Italia stage 6: Démare best in showdown with Cavendish, Ewan

Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) was the fastest of the sprinters on stage 6 of the 2022 Giro d’Italia.

While he was nearly boxed in on the barrier at 200m to go, Démare was able to work his way into contention on Caleb Ewan’s (Lotto-Soudal) wheel. Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo) retained his overall lead in the race.

Giro d’Italia: Arnaud Démare wins stage 5 in Messina

Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) took the sprint victory in Messina on stage 5 of the Giro d’Italia, his first win at a grand tour in two years.

Démare was distanced over the day’s main climb, but got back into the peloton after the descent, unlike pre-stage favorites Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) and Mark Cavendish (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl). Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo) kept his overall lead and the maglia rosa for another day.

Giro d’Italia stage 4: Lennard Kämna fastest up Mount Etna

Lennard Kämna (Bora-Hansgrohe) was the first rider to summit the Sicilian volcano Mount Etna to win stage 4 of the 2022 Giro d’Italia.

After bridging to Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo) from the remains of the breakaway, the two on the front worked together in the final 3km to keep a closing Rein Taaramäe (Intermarché–Wanty–Gobert Matériaux) in the rearview mirror

Giro d'Italia: Stage 3 - Mark Cavendish storms to sprint win

Mark Cavendish (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) made a winning return to the Giro d’Italia with victory in the first bunch sprint of the race. Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix)  retained his grip on the maglia rosa after finishing safely in the main field. The Dutch rider will keep the race lead as the Giro d'Italia heads into its first rest day and heads from Hungary to Italy.

Giro d'Italia: Stage 2 - Simon Yates takes time on his GC rivals with TT win

Simon Yates (BikeExchange-Jayco) blitzed the 9.2km Giro d’Italia time trial Saturday to get his GC challenge rolling in style.

Yates edged out a pink jersey-clad Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) in the blast around Budapest. Van der Poel finished a very close second and did enough to defend his GC lead. Tom Dumoulin (Jumbo-Visma) placed third.

Giro d'Italia:  Mathieu van der Poel delivers on stage 1

Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) claimed the first stage of the 2022 Giro d’Italia ahead of Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux) and Pello Bilbao (Bahrain-Victorious).

With the defending champion Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) recovering from an early-season crash the race for the maglia rosa is wide open in the 2022 Giro d'Italia.

Simon Yates (Team BikeExchange), Tom Dumoulin (Jumbo-Visma), Romain Bardet (Team DSM), and Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) are all set to start the race on May 6. Carapaz will be looking for his second Giro d'Italia crown having won the race with Movistar back in 2019. The 28-year-old will be supported by Richie Porte, who is set to race his final grand tour before retiring at the end of the season. Tom Pidcock is not expected to start the race after initially being included in Ineos' long-team.

Yates, third in 2021, came close to winning the Giro d'Italia in 2018 and wore the maglia rosa for much of the race. He will spearhead BikeExchange's challenge. Two-time winner Vincenzo Nibali will lead the line alongside Miguel Angel Lopez for Astana, in what could be the Italian's final Giro d'Italia appearance.

João Almeida and Davide Formolo form part of a strong-looking UAE Team Emirates squad, while 2017 winner Tom Dumoulin returns to the race with possible aspirations of challenging for the GC. The Dutchman will race alongside Tobias Foss and Sam Oomen.

Damiano Caruso - second last year - is set to miss the Giro d'Italia this year and concentrate on the Tour de France but the Bahrain Victorious team will still hold strength in depth with Pello Bilbao and Mikel Landa set to lead the team's efforts.

Giro d'Italia 2022: The sprinters

Mark Cavendish is the most high profile sprinter on the startlist. The Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl rider has won 15 stages at the Giro d'Italia but his last victory in the race came way back in 2013. He will have a strong leadout at his disposal but he will face stiff competition from a number of rivals in the race.

Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) had an illness hit spring but the Australian will be looking to bounce back at the Giro d'Italia and kick-start his season. Giacomo Nizzolo comes into the Giro d'Italia still looking for his first win of the 2022 season, while Elia Viviani (Ineos Grenadiers), Arnaud Demare (Groupama FDJ), Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates), and Biniam Girmay (Intermarché - Wanty - Gobert Matériaux) are all set to start the race.

Giro d'Italia 2022: Race route

One of the main standout features within the 2022 Giro d’Italia is that the route will feature just 26.3km of time trialing - the lowest number of kilometres against the clock since 1962. The first instalment of time trialing comes on stage 2 with a 9.2km test through the Hungarian capital of Budapest. The final time trial takes place on the final day of the race with a 17.1km race through the streets of Verona.

The race kicks off in Hungary with three stages before a rest day allows the race to return to Italy for its first mountain-top finish atop Mount Etna on stage 4.

The second key summit finish comes on stage 9 with a brutal ascent of the  Blockhaus. The riders will enjoy their second well-earned rest day before a week of hilly stages heading to  Jesi, Genoa, Turin, and Cogne.

As with previous editions of the Giro d'Italia, the third week is the most critical and the race is stacked with summit stages, including back-to-back mountain stages that include the Mortirolo and Santa Cristina on the road to to Aprica on stage 16. The following stage to Lavarone is just as hard with three major ascents.

Stage 19 provides yet another summit finish before the penultimate stage takes on the Passo San Pellegrino, Passo Pordoi, and Passo di Fedaia before the final time trial in Verona.
