Subscribe to Cyclingnews for our best Giro d'Italia coverage

The Giro d’Italia kicks off the summer of men's Grand Tour racing and Cyclingnews will again provide unrivalled coverage of the Corsa Rosa, capturing all the racing, rider reaction, bike tech and polemics that only an Italian Grand Tour can inspire.

The Giro d’Italia is considered the world’s toughest race in the world’s most beautiful place, and the three weeks of racing offer a daily postcard from the Bel Paese. As always, it will be a cycling, cultural and culinary journey on two wheels.

This year’s Giro d’Italia starts in Venaria Reale, near Turin in the northwest Piedmont region and then heads south via Tuscany, Umbria and Abruzzo to Naples before heading back north along the Adriatic coast and into the mountains. The finish is again in the stunning historic city of Rome.

The 2024 Giro d'Italia will include two time trials (of 40.6km and 31.2km), a Strade Bianche-style gravel day on stage 6, and six mountain-top finishes for a balanced but testing route.

The final week is packed with climbs, with stage 15 finishing at 2,385 metres above Livigno. After the second rest day, the riders climb the Passo dello Stelvio, the highest point in the 2024 Giro d'Italia at 2,758 metres, and so the Cima Coppi of this year's race.

Stephen Farrand, Barry Ryan and Alasdair Fotheringham will be in Italy for Cyclingnews, capturing the daily news and events of each stage. Our global team of journalists will combine to provide full live updates of every stage, with 24-hour coverage of everything that happens in Italy.

Cyclingnews will also produce regular race analysis features and detailed stage previews, while Philippa York and other expert columnists will provide unique insight and context into the racing and help you understand what it all means.

Our tech journalists will also capture the new bikes and equipment used at the Giro d’Italia. We are experts on the #ProTech that the professional teams use, and we’ve broken the news on the latest trends in the peloton, new groupsets and developments in clothing and bike tech.
