The Giro d’Italia is a three-week cycling odyssey that starts in Hungary before riders venture up the length and breadth of Italy, while also passing through Slovenia. In all, the first Grand Tour of the season spans three countries, 21 stages, 3,445.6 kilometers, and 50,580 meters of climbing. With defending champion Egan Bernal injured, the field is wide open this year and favorites for the pink jersey include former champions Tao Geoghegan Hart, Richard Carapaz, and Tom Dumoulin, as well as British rider Simon Yates.
