Giro d'Italia logo
The Giro d’Italia is one of professional cycling’s three Grand Tour races, alongside the Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana. The Giro d’Italia is an annual multiple-stage professional cycling race that takes place primarily in Italy in late May and early June in the lead-in to the Tour de France.

The Giro d’Italia was first raced in 1909 and was established by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, and has since been staged on 99 occasions. It is raced across 23 days with 21 stages interspersed with two rest days, and concludes in the northern Italian city of Milan.

Three riders – Alfredo Binda, Fausto Coppi and Eddie Merckx – have tasted success at the Giro d’Italia on a record five occasions. Other notable winners of Italy’s most prestigious cycling race include Miguel Indurain, Marco Pantani and Alberto Contador.

In 2017, the 100th edition of the race, riders will face six sprint stages, eight medium and five highly testing mountains stages as well as two individual time trials. The famous Monza racetrack leading to the Milan Cathedral will be the final stage of the milestone iteration of the tour.
