Giro d'Italia 2006, overview of the stages

The 89th Giro d'Italia took place from May 6th to 28th, 2006 . The bike race consisted of 21 stages with a total length of 3,506.2 kilometers (actually 3,524.2 kilometers); a total of 22,500 meters of altitude had to be overcome.


The 2006 Giro d'Italia paid at the beginning of the Belgian Walloon from a four-day visit before it on May 11 in Italy with a team time trial went over 38 kilometers. At the end of the first week there were the first larger time gaps at Passo Lanciano in the Apennines . After the second day of rest on May 17th, the second individual time trial over 50 kilometers was held in Pontedera .

On the 17th stage it was planned to cover the last five kilometers up to the Kronplatz ( Plan de Corones ) in South Tyrol over unpaved gravel roads with an incline of up to 24 percent, but this was canceled due to the adverse weather conditions (sometimes snowfall) and the stage ended three miles earlier. Two days later, on the way to the Passo di San Pellegrino, the Passo Fedaia had to be crossed as one of three mighty passes, which is considered to be one of the most difficult climbs in cycling.

The showdown took place on the closing weekend. On Saturday the Passo Gavia , which at 2,618 meters was the roof of the 89th edition, and the twelve kilometer long Mortirolo were passed. The final stage from Ghisallo to Milan followed on Sunday .
