The Italian Road Championships – or Settimana Tricolore – have been scheduled for June 24 to 29, 2008 with events to be held in and near the city of Bergamo. The locations for the women's and men's time trial and road race events will vary, with the marquee event, the Elite Men's road race, to be held on June 29 in Bergamo.
All time trials will be held in Montichiari (Brescia), while the women's junior and elite races are to be held in Forcola (Sondrio). Albano Sant'Alessandro (Bergamo) will host the junior men, Boltiere (Bergamo) the amateurs, and Palazzago (Bergamo) will host the Under-23 men. The city centre of Bergamo will provide the venue for Giovanni Visconti to defend his 2007 title.
