The Giro d'Italia organisation has confirmed the rumours that the 2018 edition will have an uphill finish at the Monte Zoncolan.

The race will get to this point in the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia on Saturday, the 18th of May. During the 14th stage of the Italian Grand Tour, the riders will face a climb of 10.1 kilometres, reaching more than 1.200 metres of height.

The Monte Zoncolan was part of the Italian race for the first time in 2003 when home rider Gilberto Simoni took the victory. Four years later, the Giro came back to the ascent and the same rider won again, temporarily giving the climb the nickname of Monte Simoni.

In 2010, the riders climbed this mountain for the third time and Ivan Basso took the victory, in a year where he took his second General Classification win in the Italian race. The next year, the climb to this mountain had a new winner, Igor Anton, who beat Alberto Contador, the eventual winner of that year's edition.

The last time that this mount featured in the Giro was in 2014 when Australian Michael Rogers took the victory on the penultimate stage and Colombian Nairo Quintana secured his overall win.
