Example, stage 11 on Thursday. What is "GPM" (hill rating like Cat 1,2...HC?)? and why are they different colours? Also, the R and i?

thanks

Okay, real quick off the top of my head...

GPM stands for "Gran Premio della Montagna" and it is basically the same as King of the Mountain. The climbs are color coded by severity going from white to yellow to red, with green designating climb finishes or the Italian equivalent of HC, being "Catagorie Speciale."

I stands for "Intergiro" and is sprint points.

R stands for "Rifornimento" and is the feeding zone.

Hope that helps, and if I made any mistakes, don't hate me, just correct me.

Great Job Jaco. It matches with what I would have guessed. I only want to add in the Giro unlike the Tour the InterGiro is an entirely seperate competition. I'm not sure if the InterGiro spot gives points for the sprinters jersey, but it for sure gives points to the intergiro competition.

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for.

Now, are there higher point values awarded for the harder 'colour coded' climbs. i.e., are they weighted?

A cut and paste from the daily peloton site:

JERSEYS: The PINK and SKY BLUE JERSEYS are related to time classifications, the GREEN and the CYCLAMEN are for point-based classifications. The "Intergiro" (Intermediate Sprints) provides Time Bonuses for both the Overall and Sky Blue Jersey Standings, and also Points for the relative classification (Cyclamen Jersey).
* PINK JERSEY ("Maglia Rosa") for the Overall Classification;

* GREEN JERSEY ("Maglia Verde") for the Mountain Classification;

* CYCLAMEN JERSEY ("Maglia Ciclamino") for Points Classification;

* SKY BLUE JERSEY ("Maglia Azzurra") for Intermediate Sprints Ranking



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The INTERGIRO CLASSIFICATION works as follows:
LINE STAGES: to all the competitors will be assigned the time obtained by the winner of the Inter-Giro; further on, the six first runners on the result list will gain the following bonuses: 30'' the first, 25'' the second, 20'' the third, 15'' the fourth, 10'' the fifth and 5'' the sixth. The first three riders will also gain bonus time for the Overall Ranking (see details below);

TIME TRIALS: the first six on the result list will be credited with the real time used to cover the distance from the starting point to the passage of the Intergiro; all other competitors will be credited with the time of the seventh.

* There’s also two Teams Classifications, respectively based on TIME and POINTS.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


TIME BONUSES in EACH STAGE (but the ITTs, of course):
STAGE FINISH:
* 1st: 20 seconds;
* 2nd: 12 seconds;
* 3rd: 8 seconds

INTERGIRO (Intermediate Sprints):
* 1st: 6 seconds;
* 2nd: 4 seconds;
* 3rd: 2 seconds



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


POINTS CLASSIFICATION - SCORING SYSTEM:
STAGE RESULT - points (places: 1st to 15th) - : 25 - 20 - 16 - 14 - 12 - 10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1

INTERGIRO - points (places: 1st to 6th): 8 - 6 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1

KOM CLASSIFICATION - SCORING SYSTEM:

CIMA COPPI - points (places: 1st to 6th): 20 - 15 - 10 - 6 - 4 - 2

The "Cima Coppi" is the highest mountain climbed in the Giro

MOUNTAIN TOP FINISH - points (places: 1st to 6th): 15 - 10 - 6 - 4 - 2

1st CATEGORY CLIMB - points (places: 1st to 5th): 10 - 6 - 4 - 2 -1

2nd CATEGORY CLIMB - points (places: 1st to 3rd): 5 - 3 - 1

3rd CATEGORY CLIMB - points (places: 1st to 3rd): 3 - 2 – 1

Probably either Categoria Speciale or Categorie Speciali, but not Categorie Speciale...

And possibly (forgive this spelling - it has been 49 years - but you will probably get the idea): te spaco il muso me!

So is red Cat. 1 or HC? It looks like green GPMs are only finishes. Although there is the green Cima Coppi symbol on the May 22 stage.........
