RCS Sport presented the official route of the 2017 Giro d'Italia on October 25 at the luxurious Palazzo del Ghiaccio in Milan.

The 100th edition of the Italian Grand Tour brought together some of the past champions and stage winners: Miguel Indurain, Mario Cipollini, Felice Gimondi, Giuseppe Saronni, Francesco Moser, Ivan Basso, Fabio Aru and defending champion Vincenzo Nibali, among others.

As the crowd entered the venue, they were treated to a display of pink leader's jerseys worn by riders from previous editions of the Giro d'Italia.

The Grande Partenza will set things off in Sardinia on May 5 in Alghero with a lengthy 203km road race to Olbia, and the overall winner will be crowned three weeks later upon its conclusion following a flat 28km time trial to Milan on May 28.
