That is the weekend that one of the all-time famous cycling race Giro d´Italia is coming to the most emerald alpine valley. Part of the 19th stage of the Giro d'Italia 2022 will be a challenging ascent to the mountain ridge of Kolovrat, which is considered to be one of the most difficult trials of this year's Giro and a special challenge for cyclists.

Friday, 27 May 2022

The start of the 19th stage is in Marano Lagunare. Cyclists will enter Slovenia at the Uccea border crossing, descend to the village of Žaga, and then continue to the villages of Srpenica and Trnovo, all the way down to the town of Kobarid.
