#INGIRO: THE HAT TRICK OF STELVIO

Welcome to the stage of the truth. Maybe we won’t found today who will win this Giro but surely we will know who will be excluded from the struggle for success.  Until today it seems to be a fight between three riders: Quintana, the one who started this Giro as favorite for the final victory, Dumoulin, the one who is so strong that he didn’t even expect to be, and the last one, the champion, Vincenzo Nibali, the one who in the third week of 2016 Giro managed to bring home the success when it seemed to be already lost.  The length of this stage is a feared ones, 254 […]

#INGIRO: EL TRIPLETE DEL STELVIO

La etapa de la verdad. No vamos a saber quien va a ganar esta carrera al final del día. Sin embargo, seguramente sabemos quién será excluido de la lucha por el éxito que hoy parece ser un discurso a 3: Quintana, inmediatamente dado por favorido y todavía hoy en busca de la victoria, la sorpresa Dumoulin, tan fuerte que incluso él no se lo esperaba, y el campeón, Vincenzo Nibali, que en la 3ª semana en el giro 2016 supo llevar a casa el éxito final cuando parecía un discurso cerrado. La longitud, 254 km, es de las dificiles, así como los más de 5.000 metros de desnivel.  El Mortirolo […]

#INGIRO: IL TRIPLETE DELLO STELVIO

La tappa della verità. Non sapremo chi vincerà questo giro al termine della giornata. Sicuramente però sapremo chi sarà escluso dalla lotta per il successo che ad oggi sembra essere un discorso a 3: Quintana, da subito dato per favorito e ancora oggi in cerca del colpo risolutore, la sorpresa Dumoulin, tanto forte che nemmeno lui se lo aspettava, e il campione, Vincenzo Nibali, uno che nella 3^ settimana nel Giro 2016 seppe portare a casa il successo finale quando sembrava un discorso chiuso. La lunghezza, 254 km, è di quelle potenti, così come gli oltre 5.000 metri di dislivello. Il Mortirolo da Monno è semplice, la discesa da Grosio […]

VALDENGO BERGAMO

Comienza desde Valdengo (Biella) ya ciudad donde empezo el Giro en 2014. Los primeros 150 kilómetros son totalmente planos con los obstáculos usuales del camino (rotatorias, divisor del tráfico, etc) en casi todos los centros de ciudad.

Después de Selvino sigue una descendida entremezclada con las curvas de la horquilla y 9 kilómetros de acercamiento a Bergamo Alta y entonces a la línea de final. Últimos kilómetros a través de […]

A FINISH LINE LIKE THE GIRO OF LOMBARDIA

This stage will start from Valdengo (Biella), starting point of the Giro even in 2014. The first 150 km are completely flat with the usual city center pitfalls (roundabouts, traffic divider etc).  This could be a pitfall stage thanks to the last kilometers, with the climbs of Miragolo San Salvatore (new climb for the Giro) and Selvino (last GPM here were in 1995 and saw the success of Tony Rominger). Leaving Selvino the roads follows a long descent with bends and then the last 9 kilometers approaching finish line. Last kilometers pass through Bergamo Alta, climbing to Porta Garibaldi and then, after 200m in cobbled area, to Largo Aperto. Cycling fans […]

#INGIRO STAGE BETWEEN LEGENDS: FROM COPPI TO PANTANI

This stage of the Giro will start from Castellania, the city where is born Fausto Coppi and finish at Oropa Sanctuary, location famous for many beautiful stages. The most beautiful one is perhaps the come back of Marco Pantani in 1999 which start the climb in last position after the famous chain brake.

Another historical race in Oropa saw the success of Latvian Piotr Ugrumov, one of the very few who could leave behind Miguel Indurain. This stage is very short and is clearly made by […]

#INGIRO ETAPA DE LAS LEYENDAS: COPPI Y PANTANI

CASTELLANIA-OROPA: Aquí tocamos la leyenda. Salida desde Castellania, ciudad de Fausto Coppi, y se llega al Santuario de Oropa, una ciudad famosa por sus emocionantes carreras de ciclismo. El más hermoso es quizás el regreso mágico de Marco Pantani en el 1999, que tomó el ascenso casi en la última posición para el famoso salto de la cadena. Pantani  fue capaz de superar el grupo y también al francés Laurent Jalabert, último en rendirse. Oropa también recuerda el éxito del letón Piotre Ugrumov, uno de los pocos capaces de superar a Miguel Indurain. En detalle la etapa es muy corta claramente dividida en dos partes: 120 kilómetros absolutamente rápidos y planos […]
