Giro d'Italia

Giro d'Italia

We’re pretty excited to hear this morning that both Tom Dumoulin and Vincenzo Nibali have confirmed – they will both target the win for the 2019 Giro d’Italia in May 2019.

The 2019 Giro d’Italia route is one of the best we’ve seen in recent years, the loop of Italy commences on May 11th in Bologna, the capital of the Emilia Romagna region. The race then snakes it’s way south as far as the Gargano in the Puglia region, it passes through the Ride International Tours spiritual/family hometown “San Marco in Lamis”, for the stage 6 finish in San Giovanni Rotondo.

From the Gargano area or the Spur of Italy, the race then turns back to the north via the east coast.  This edition of the race will also be popular with the teams, as it has the least amount of Km’s transferred between stages we’ve seen for some time – we’re sure the teams will appreciate this simpler logistical format, it’s great for spectators and Italian fans will have more of a chance to see their great race up close.

We are really pleased we only have a couple of places left available on our 2019 Giro d’Italia Tour which starts and finishes in Milan. Without trying to talk ourselves up “too” much 😉 we are pretty excited by our 2019 Giro d’Italia Tour, it’s one of the best Giro Tour itineraries we’ve ever put together, it’s got a great mix of fantastic rides, race viewing and short transfers. Prosecco in hand we’ll also celebrate with the Giro d’Italia winner in style, our Hotel overlooks the magnificent ancient Verona arena where the Giro d’Italia will finish for only the fourth time in history.

It’s very hard to predict a winner of the Dumoulin v’s Nibali stoush at this early stage, both are incredible riders with plenty of experience in Grand Tours, we are very much looking forward to watching the battle unfold on the roads of Italy as we complete our own Giro d’Italia – who’s your pick for the win?
