The "Giro d'Italia" cycling race starts!

Giro, Italian Dolomites
Italian AlpsCycling fever just can't get any better than this year's centennial edition of Giro d'Italia!! Starting from Venice Lido on the 9th May, it finishes in Rome on the 31st May covering 21 stages of 3.395 kilometres, some of them in Austria and Switzerland. This year the Giro will also pass through the Dolomite Mountains! For 3 days, the 12th, 13th and 14th of May the cyclists will have to climb the hard uphill in San Martino di Castrozza and Alpe di Siusi, arriving at the Austrian Tirol.

Even though the great Lance Armstrong is back, the favourite this year is the Italian Ivan Basso, but our support goes to Damiano Cunego, the "Little Prince" from Cerro Veronese who won the Giro in 2004 when he was only 22...and especially because he has never been involved in any doping cases!

Attending a live mountain cycling stage is a unique experience, you really understand how hard and spectacular this sport is.

And if you want to emulate these great champions, we recommend the Sella Ronda Bike Day, on the 12th of July, cycling up and down the amazing Sella Mountain range.

Enjoy sport and nature!
Ciao ciao
