About the Giro d’Italia
The Giro d’Italia is back in its traditional slot on the calendar this year and will, as it has done for the best part of the last century, welcome in the start of summer and the much-anticipated Grand Tour season. With a leg-breaking route bookended by two decisive individual time trials and a start list that features the likes of Egan Bernal, Simon Yates, Remco Evenepoel and Vincenzo Nibali we’re guaranteed an action-packed three weeks of racing. Only one can claim the coveted maglia rosa in Milan however, who will get that honour?
