The 2017 edition of the Giro d’Italia will be the 100th edition of one of cycling’s most prestigious events – along with the Tour de France and Vuelta a España, the Giro makes up cycling’s celebrated Grand Tours. Although the event was first staged in 1909 (as a promotional tool for an Italian sports newspaper no less!) and is therefore more than 100 years old, the event was put on hold during the two World Wars.

Traversing some of the most breathtaking scenery Italy (and occasionally some of it’s neighbours), the Giro d’Italia is almost as renowned for it’s stunning backdrop as it is for the thrilling racing it produces! In 2017, the Giro will consist of the following stages:

Although the route of the Giro changes each year, the format is always the same – there’s always a minimum of two time trials and a passage through the mountains of the Alps. Furthermore, like the Tour de France and the Vuelta, the Giro consists of 21 stages over 24 days – the remaining three days being for rest. All stages of the Giro are timed to the finish and after each stage riders’ times are aggregated with their times from previous stages. The rider with the lowest total time is adjudged the leader of the race and gets to wear the Giro’s famed pink jersey. Although the ‘general’ classification (overall) receives the most attention and is the most coveted, there are also classifications for sprinters, climbers, young (under the age of 25) riders and teams.
