12.52 Attack by Rin Tarami and Mori Vancevenant. Matthew Holmes is still with them.

12.27 The bike is in motion! In front of everyone Mathieu van der Poel and we are heading towards kilometer 0 from this stage!

12.22 Here we are, the riders are ready and in a few minutes the first steps will be taken in Italy for this Giro!
12.20 Here is the elevation measurement for the day’s stage. You can see the first stretch of the ascent up to 893 m from the height of the Bucheri junction and then the endless climb to Etna, even if there are never impossible slopes:

12.17 with 22.9 km, the Etna climb will be the second longest route for the entire Giro, behind only Monte Sereno on the challenging but close 7 stage with access to Potenza. Often the volcano hasn’t created huge gaps between the best, but there is room to attack and we can expect a great show.
12.15 Here are some photos from Rahil, where Vincenzo Nibali spoke with many of his supporters:

12.12 When the day arrives, it is likely that Maglia Rosa will also be at stake, who must be undressed by Mathieu Van der Poel. The white shirt on the shoulders of Matteo Sobrero is blue. German Rick Zabel wears the blue jersey while Eritrean Benyam Germay Cyclamen wears it.
12.09 Many men are expected to enter this first mountain stage. From “Owner” Vincenzo Nibali to Giro winner Simon Yates, passing by Richard Carapaz, Roman Bardet and many more.
12.06 After the three galactic days and the day of rest, the first kilometer of this gyro will be covered in the Italian territory of Avola. The road will begin to climb shortly after the start, for a distance of 172 km ending with a 22.9 km ascent to the finish line of the Sapienza Sanctuary, at an altitude of 1,892 meters above sea level.
12.03 First big date for the Ranking Knights. Today is Etna’s long climb day!
12.00 OA Sport friends Good morning and welcome to the live broadcast of the fourth stage of the Giro d’Italia 2022!
Fourth stage show
OA Sport friends, good morning and welcome to the live broadcast of the fourth stage of the Giro d’Italia 2022! After three days in Hungary, the race has finally arrived on Italian soil where the games will immediately become very challenging.
In fact, today’s road, after departing from Avola and a bit of a slight climb at first, will end with the first real hard climb of this edition, Today we go to Etna! To reach the height of 1892 meters from the Sapienza shelter, the contestants will cover a distance of 22.9 kilometers. Slopes are never forbidden but the maximum length makes today’s climb a true marathon.
Inevitably we will see the ranking guys in action, and an extraordinarily difficult first week has already been called into question. The most anticipated runner is probably Vincenzo Nibali, Like every time you run in Sicily. There are several riders out there who look better equipped than a shark, starting with already stage winner Simon Yates, but Messina is sure to leave no stone unturned, considering that Maglia Rosa could also be on the line, which in all probability will be Left by Matthew van der Poel.
It is impossible not to mention Richard Carapaz, as well as Roman Bardet and Bello Bilbao, who would also have a decent quick start on their side, at the end of a climb that often saw climbers arrive together without great results. Gaps. Also watch out for the more refined climbers like Mikel Landa and Miguel Angel Lopez. The break will start at 12.25, we will start OA Sport live at 12.00. Impossible to miss!
