2019 Giro d'Italia, Stage 1 to Stage 11

The 2019 Giro d'Italia is the 102nd edition of the Giro d'Italia, one of cycling's Grand Tours. The Giro began in Bologna with an individual time trial on 11 May, and Stage 11 occurred on 22 May with a stage to Novi Ligure. The race will finish in Verona on 2 June.

Stage 1Edit

11 May 2019 - Bologna to Bologna (San Luca), 8 km (5.0 mi) (ITT)[1]

The first rider departed at 16:50 CEST (UTC+02:00). The route started on the Via F. Rizzoli, heading west for the first half of the course. The riders then turned back east for 2 km (1.2 mi), to the timecheck at the Via di San Luca. The course then headed southwest on a 2.1-kilometre-long (1.3 mi) category 3 climb, with a 9.7% average gradient, to the finish line.[2]

The stage was won by Primož Roglič (Team Jumbo–Visma) who therefore became the first wearer of the maglia rosa, the pink jersey identifying the leader of the general classification. Roglič also took the lead in the points classification. Giulio Ciccone (Trek–Segafredo) took the lead in the mountains classification and became the first wearer of the blue jersey, while Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana Qazaqstan Team) finished as the fastest young rider and became the leader of the young rider classification.[3]
