Giro d'Italia Giro d'Italia 2022 route rumors

I see have made a grave mistake and forgotten to make this thread 12 seconds after the previous Giro finished like usual.

So what will be in store? Fauniera rumors falling through? Crostis/Fedaia canceled again? 250km medium mountain stage nerfed after riders strike?

Question is. If Hungary happens (Kekes maybe? Cuz the Hungarian stages are rather lame) then where will they start after the transfer. I guess the easiest one would be to Friuli and with Slovenia now being cycling mad you could try for a similar stunt like this year, for example around Trieste? I believe next year the Padova Uni will have its 800 anniversary and it could host either a TTT after the Hungarian transfer or a flat/hilly stage to Bologna to link the 2nd oldest Italian Uni with the oldest one. I'll need to look if there are other historic and cycling anniversaries next year. It seems 100 years ago there were some treaties in Genoa and Rapallo, which would go nicely with a Ligurian stage(s). Also next year it'll be 100 years of Monza so i guess you can expect the return of Monza - Milano ITT. Also it'll be 100 anniversary of Mussolini gaining power but i doubt it will be commemorated in any fashion.

Otherwise i guess it's looking at what happened in the last 2 years. Liguria seen no action lately so it may have a stage or two. Maybe Mugello with Giogio/Carnevale/Sambuca? Viterbo? I dunno if and when will they try to revive Fauniera. Also with the failure of FEDAIA!!1! there may be an MTF there like in 2008.

It'll be 20 years after he won the rainbow and i wonder if Lucca/Montecatini Terme will be the only reference. Possibly an Arezzo - Montecatini Terme stage as the last stages he won were in both towns?

If Hungary happens, then we're gonna have a rather unusual case of all three GTs starting foreignly.
I know that's not how you usually use "foreignly".
I think you'll find that it'll actually be the first time that the Tour doesn't start foreignly :p

Let's hope they decide not to be a WT race anymore, so they won't have to invite teams, who aren't interested in doing actual racing.

No doubt this stage wouldn't satisfy most of the fans here. Not hard enough. Lacking cobbles, sterrato and crosswinds.
No you don't get it

Wherever you put it in the Giro, the rest of the Giro the isn't hard enough. And there's not enough ITT to balance it.

Also, obviously this stage would be Luke Rowe pace at least until the steep part of the Agnello

This was just an example of possibilities there. 3 of these climbs are more than enough for a queen stage (well paced and about 100 km long)
 
According to our local govenor South Tyrol will get a stage next year (probably a mountain stage).

Cainero really wants the Monte Lussari thing to happen and is pushing for a Tarvisio-Monte Lussari MTT, Kronplatz/Plan de Corones style on an unpaved climb.

There are also rumours about a Prati di Tivo MTF after the one that we had this year in Tirreno-Adriatico, that wouldn't be a bad early MTF.
Also at least 3 towns want to host an ITT.

I really hope they finally bring the Jaufenpass - Penser Joch combo back...

Pretty much what Mayo has already written. The Lussari thing is still kinda hard to believe, but I suppose it would work as an MTT.
It seems the plan A is still to start in Hungary... if that's again not possible they should start from the Marche region.
Perugia still wants the ITT they didnt get this year, Verona wants one (might simply be the final day) and Asti too.
Then watch them make nothing of all those...
 
Will they keep teasing us with the Colle Basset and Fauniera or is there any chance one of those is actually gonna happen some time soon?
I guess a 3 years pause for the Finestre is about as much as I would expect, so I could see that one returning.
Also, after this years Dolomites debacle I'm be hoping they will finally return to the Fedaia next year...
