After a day dedicated to sprinters, the 19th stage of the Giro 2024 could well smile on the adventurers if Tadej Pogacar does not get involved. The mid-mountains will be in the spotlight between Mortegliano and Sappada.

Tadej Pogacar, who is aiming for a Giro-Tour de France double this season, has soon finished with the first part of his objective. With almost eight minutes ahead of Daniel Martinez, the Slovenian can approach the last two difficult stages of the Giro 2024 very calmly before the final arrival in Rome this Sunday.

The route of the 19th stage

Between Mortegliano and Sappada, you will have to travel 157 kilometers. The arrival will take place in a mountain resort located at an altitude of 1250 meters, in the northwest of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, on the border with Veneto. Sappada is surrounded by the Dolomites where the departure town is three quarters of an hour from the beaches of the Adriatic,

The profile of the 19th stage

Once again on this Tour of Italy, the day’s profile can be divided into two parts. The first will be the opportunity to witness the formation of the breakaway before it is undoubtedly explained in the three difficulties listed in the finale. The Passo Duron will be difficult with 4.4km at 9.7% average slope, the summit of which will be located 53 kilometers from the finish. Then, the Sella Valcalda and the Cima Sapada (8.3km at 4.8%) will also be on the program.

The favorites of the 19th stage

On arrival, the Slovenian border will not be far away, which could motivate Tadej Pogacar. Already a winner five times in this Giro, the pink jersey will be the big favorite if he decides to go for stage victory. Otherwise, you will probably have to find a candidate through the breakaway.

On paper, Julian Alaphilippe has one last chance to shine this Friday. The adventurers could be celebrating and the Slovenian Jan Tratnik is also likely to be motivated on such terrain. Jhonatan Narvaez, Pelayo Sanchez and Georg Steinhauser already have one stage on the clock and are still likely to go to the front.

The Giro 2024 is broadcast on the Eurosport 1 channel, who will take the air at 1:10 p.m. for the start of the 19th stage. You will also be able to follow this 19th stage of the Giro live on the RMC Sport website and application. Arrival is expected between 5 p.m. and 5:20 p.m.
