Iconic photos from the previous 10+ years of the Italian Grand Tour
While Giro d'Italia organiser RSC Sport has provided teasers regarding the 2013 parcours, such as a start on May 4 in Naples and the debut of the Col du Galibier as a summit finish at the conclusion of stage 15, the full corsa rosa will be unveiled on Sunday, September 30 in Milan.
Race director Michele Acquarone and his staff certainly have a taste for the theatric, having recently released a promotional video where the narrator states regarding the Giro: "The past is not forgotten, but is the soul of a myth that has been past on for over 100 years."
With the unveiling of the complete Giro d'Italia route imminent, Cyclingnews has delved into the past to compile a large gallery of photographs from the previous decade of racing, courtesy of AFP.
