Preview: Tricky urban stage 2 time trial tests Giro d’Italia contenders

After Friday’s breathless uphill finale, the challenges keep on coming in the 2022 Giro d’Italia with a short, punchy time trial through the streets of Budapest set to test the contenders on Saturday afternoon.

And just like Friday’s stage 1 finish at Visegrad, Saturday’s 9.2-kilometre race has a real sting in the tail. This comes in the shape of a final 1.3-kilometre climb, steepest at the bottom, with a stretch at around 14%, and then dragging steadily upwards at a much less challenging 3.5% to the finish line in Szentháromság square.
