Our epic Giro d’Italia route covers some truly amazing cols including Monte Zoncolan and an incredible finish at the Madonna del Ghisallo chapel, home of the Patron Saint of Cycling, sitting high above Lake Como.
The King of the Mountains Giro pits riders against the biggest and best mountains of the Giro d’Italia, across 780km, 19 cols, 22,000m of elevation gain and six incredible stages, highlighted by the legendary Giau, Pordoi, Campolongo, Zoncolan, Stelvio and Mortirolo (with our very own triple ascent Club des Cingles du Mortirolo), amongst many others.
