Alpecin-Fenix Showcases Special Jersey For Giro d’Italia 2022 Edition

Alpecin-Fenix alongside EF Education-EasyPost and others unveil their new "Special Giro Jersey"

Alpecin Fenix 2022 Giro Jersey

The opening ceremony of Giro d’Italia saw thousands of fans circling at Heroes Plaza in Budapest, this was surely a sight to behold. The three days of opening will be starting from Wednesday onwards, and the event will end on May 29 in Verona. Ending the event on home soil surely seems a good idea for both fans and long-time sponsors.

This will be the 105th edition of Giro d’Italia and a total of 22 teams will be participating in the event. This will certainly be a hard race and that is putting it mildly. Even the presentation hosts of the race have deemed it as the “Toughest race in the most beautiful place”.

As preparations are well underway for the Giro, three teams have unveiled their special jerseys at respective team presentations. Those three teams are Alpecin-Fenix, EF Education-EasyPost and Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux. Another surprising addition was the addition of Vini Zabù logo in Intermarché–Wanty–Gobert Matériaux jersey, Vini Zabù will be the team’s winery partner. The ‘verde comodoro’ color certainly suits Alpecin-Fenix for the Giro, this change from dark blue will be well appreciated.

We told you that this year’s Giro is going to be hard, but how much hard exactly? This year’s course will be covering a total of 3410.3 kilometers, apart from that it will also include 51,000 meters of climbing. Surprisingly enough, there will only be two time trials this year, one in stage 2 in Budapest and the last one in stage 21 in Verona, the total distance of the time trials will be 26.3km.

Last year, Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) took the overall title at the Giro, he shared the podium with Damiano Caruso (Bahrain Victorious) who came second and Simon Yates (Team BikeExchange) who ended up with the third position.

Who will win the overall title at this year’s Giro? Only time will tell but we won’t have to wait long to find out. The Giro officially starts tomorrow!
