The Giro d'Italia Women is embarking on a new era under the well-established RCS Sport for its first year of a four-year term. With this change comes heightened responsibility, pressure, and expectations for the organisation to fulfil its promise to raise the overall event level and improve on the shortcomings of the previous editions. 

This year, the event is entering its 35th edition, and there is much to celebrate as the longest-running stage race in women's cycling.
