The Giro d’Italia: it’s about beauty, style, resilience and suffering. There will be bunch sprints, punchy time trials, cruel mountains and lots of very cool Italian cycle-styling. The 2022 race starts this Friday in Budapest. As ever, we expect a dramatic and hard-fought race and, joining host OJ Borg, is the cycling correspondent to The Guardian, Jeremy Whittle, and author, journalist and podcaster, Pete Cossins.
OJ, Jeremy and Pete run their eyes over the route of the Corsa Rosa, identify the favorites and the potential upstarts, and choose the key stages from what looks a very dramatic and grueling route. And they chat through Italian cycling’s spell in the World Tour doldrums, the appeal of time trialling to the Tik Tok generation and discuss ways to make the “race of truth” more appealing to a younger audience.
