Overview
Our GIRO KOM Challenge provides the perfect mix of LIVE race-viewing and challenging rides on the famous routes and climbs of the GIRO in the Italian Alps.

The Giro Organisers have designed another challenging and spectacular route with a focus on long, tough stages with lots of climbing. They’ve also been quite creative with the inclusion of many lesser-known but really spectacular climbs such as Piancavallo, Mount Etna, Sella Chianzutan, Forcella Valbona and a thrilling finale to Stage 16 with the peloton climbing Monte Ragogna 3 times before the finish in San Daniele del Friuli. Of course the legendary Passo Stelvio will play a huge role in the final outcome.

Our trip focuses on the 4 intensive stages at the beginning of the final week. We’ll witness the Stage Finish on the HC climb to Piancavallo, we’ll be on Monte Ragogna for a unique opportunity to witness the race go by 3 times on the same climb. With the help of our bike partner, Basso Bikes, we have a special day in store for you in Basso’s home town, Bassano del Grappa, where we’ll witness the start of Stage 17 followed by a ride up the legendary Monte Grappa. We’ll round off the trip with a special day of race-viewing on the mot famous of Grand Tour climbs, the Passo Stelvio!
