Giro d’Italia

The Giro d’Italia (Tour of Italy in English) is a stage cycling race created in 1909 by the newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport. It is considered as the second most important race of the Grand Tours of the UCI World Tour calendar just behind the Tour de France.

Like the Tour de France and its famous yellow jersey, the Giro d’Italia is categorized by its pink jersey which remembers the colors of the Gazzetta dello Sport, its foundator.
