The Giro d'Italia is soon to be announcing it's full route for the 2023 edition, but as the date comes closer more details are revealed regarding the race, and an extensive distance in time-trials.
The race will, as has been known for some time, start in the Abruzzo region. The initial day of racing seems to be confirmed, with an 18-kilometer time-trial between Fossacesia and Ortona, Het Laatste Nieuws reported. This year the route feature only just over 26 kilometers of time-trialing, in two separate days with hilly routes which did not allow the specialists to make any difference.
Matej Mohoric defends Fred Wright from Roglic's accusations - "It is very, very clear that Primoz deviated from his line. It's not fair to make a statement like that toward Fred"
2023 will be a different affair however. Profiles are unknown, but besides the opening time-trial, it is said that there will be two more days against the clock and that there will be a total distance between 60 and 70 kilometers when combining all three.
With the long-standing rumours that Remco Evenepoel is set to ride the 2023 Giro, if this amount of time-trialing is included in the race it is surely going to ensure the Belgian will be at the start in Fossacesia.
