Giro d’Italia 2023 Stage 19: How to watch, TV and live stream, profile as Geraint Thomas bids to hold off Primoz Roglic


A doozy in the Dolomites. Roughly 5400m of elevation and three peaks above 2000m promise to sap any remaining strength from our brave bunch.

All eyes will be on the intriguing battle for the general classification as Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) attempts to stave off the incessant pressure from the ever-ominous Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) with glory very much in sight for the Welshman.

Five categorised climbs are stitched together with little time to catch a breath. The Passo di Campolongo is immediately followed by the Passo Valparola before the “Holy Stairs” of the Dolomites: the Passo Giau, the Passo Tre Croci and a final slog to Tre Cime di Lavaredo.
