The first “breaking leg” stage of this Giro version 2022. In Calabria, Friday May 13, the riders of the peloton will have a lot to do and, on arrival, a fit man should raise his arms. Because during the 196 km race between Diamante and Potenza, the riders will have to overcome no less than four difficulties with a first category climb, two second and one third, placed in the final. The arrival will also be difficult because placed in a small bump.

So, honor to the punchers, or to the adventurers? The predictions are open and the decision remains uncertain, although a breakaway has already been at the end of this Giro, during the fourth stage towards Etna. Juan Pedro Lopez, who won his pink jersey there, faces his first real test on this seventh stage and his runner-up, Lennard Kämna, could try to destabilize him. Romain Bardet, tenth in the general classification, can also hope for something. Follow the race live.
