The upcoming Giro d’Italia 2023 is expected to be highly competitive, with a diverse field of riders and only one former champion competing. Tao Geoghegan Hart, the 2020 champion, is set to participate, but 2021 winner Egan Bernal and 2022 winner Jai Hindley will not be present.
As a result, the competition appears to be open to a first-time winner if one of the riders can elevate their performance in the season’s first Grand Tour event.

The 106th edition of the Giro d’Italia is set to take place from May 6th to May 28th, 2023. The route was unveiled with a significant increase in time trialing, a departure from recent Grand Tours.
There will be 70.6-time trialing kilometers spread over three stages, including an 18.4km flat time trial on the opening stage, an 18.6km mountain time trial on the penultimate stage, and a lengthy 33.6km ITT in Emilia Romagna at the end of the first week. This makes it the Giro with the most time-trialing kilometers since the 2013 edition.
However, the race will still feature plenty of climbing, with summit finishes in the Apennines, the Alps, and the Dolomites. The race’s final week looks set to provide plenty of fireworks, with challenging mountain stages that will test the riders to their limits.
