Stage 1 - May 9: Genova - Alba, 143 Km

The Giro's first road stage heads west along the coast, then climbs up into the Ligurian and Langhe hinterlands before the finish in the truffle and wine capital of Alba. This stage is a dangerous one for the Giro favourites because a break could go away early. Stage 1 finishes with four 5km finishing circuits in Alba.


Colle di Cadibona (m. 436) - km. 10.3 - Gradient: 4.1 percent
