The Giro d'Italia also known as the Giro is an annual multiple-stage bicycle race primarily held in Italy, while also starting in, or passing through, other countries. The first Giro race was organized in 1909 to increase sales of the newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, and the Giro race is still run by a subsidiary of that paper's owner. The Giro race has been held annually since its first edition in 1909.

The Giro is one of professional cycling's three-week-long Grand Tours, and after theTour de France is the second most importantstage race in the world.

We would encourage anyone interested in watching the race to join us in one of the Official Fan Zones, located in:

They are the pink (rosa) the leader's jersey, white (bianca) the young rider's jersey, purple/cyclamen (ciclamino) the points jersey and blue (azzurra) the king of the mountains jersey.

It’s been the leader’s jersey since 1931. A world icon. A page made of pink fabric, where the history of cycling has been written over the past 90 years. It’s the dream of every child who starts riding a bicycle. It’s the dream of every rider taking to the start of the Giro d’Italia every year.

Unsurprisingly, the best climber’s jersey is as blue as the sky. Because when you’re pushing to the KOM and you feel that strength is failing, the blue sky above becomes your guiding light, your aim, the goal that keeps you going and a patch of sky will be the reward.

Maglia Rosa

Awarded to the leader of the points classification, this jersey is usually a sprinters’ thing. It bears the colour of a fall-blooming flower and represents the determination and grit it takes to be at the front every time, at each intermediate sprint, at each bunch sprint, to and through the final stage.

Maglia Rosa

The jersey for the best young rider is white, just like the sum of all colours. It holds all hopes and dreams.It is, at once, a prize and a wish. A blank page for a new, exciting chapter to be written.
