Coppa Sabatini 2022 is expected to begin in the middle of September this year. There will be five phases to the competition, all of which will be held in Peccioli, located in the Province of Pisa in the Italian region Tuscany.
The race will only last one day, on Thursday, September 15, and will visit 10 significant locations over a distance of about 198.9 km. This year, the race will feature 19 teams and 132 individual cyclists.
The Coppa Sabatini 2022 is the 70th edition of the event, being a part of the International Union of Cyclists (UCI). This year, it is more focused on classic riders than the Giro Della Toscana, which is better suited to climbers, completes the pair of mid-September events in Tuscany. Despite that, the race is still difficult because it is separated into three sectors and has 20 hills.
The inaugural competition was held in 1952. The Coppa Sabatini is a late-season road race that takes place every year in Italy (Peccioli). From 2005 through 2019, the competition was considered a 1.1 event on the UCI Europe Tour. When it joined the UCI ProSeries in 2020, it was declared to 1.Pro. This year, it will still be in the same rankings.
Defending Champion: Michael Valgren
Michael Valgren won the Coppa Sabatini competition last year. He now competes for the EF Education-EasyPost team. In the prior race, the Dane defeated Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious) at the uphill sprint finish. Valgren has taken part in 20 classic tours and 9 Grand Tours, winning 8 championship trophies in all. On the UCI World Rankings list of the best cyclists, he is ranked number 63.
He also won first place in the Giro Della Toscana race that year. At the age of just 19, he turned pro in 2011 while competing for the Danish continental team Glud & Marstrand-LR. Valgren committed to a two-year deal with the EF Education-Nippo group in November 2020. As a result, he will take part in competitions this year from his promising place on the exact team.
