2022 Giro-E to take place from 10 to 29 may
The Giro-E is a cycling tourism event included in the calendar of the Italian Cycling Federation (FCI) and organized by the RCS Sport Spa during the Giro d’Italia, following the same route and on the same dates. The event is open to all cycling enthusiasts, amateur cyclists or former professional athletes, so they too can experience the thrill of riding the routes of the Giro d’Italia on the same days as the Corsa Rosa.
The Giro-E runs along the same route as the main cycling event, the only difference being the starting point of the stage. The event consists of 18 stages ranging from 70 to 115 kilometers per day.
The cyclists ride electric road bikes with the help of pedals provided by each team. Participants finish at the same finish line as the Giro d’Italia, under the same finish arc, at least one hour before the planned finish of the central race.
