Giuseppe Rivolta has a long history with the Giro d'Italia Donne, having organized the event for 18 years before PMG Sport/Starlight took over management of the event in 2021. 

Rivolta praised PMG Sport/Starlight for the improvements to the event in three years, but he also welcomed the news that RCS Sport would take over from 2024 through 2027, saying that it will help the race "stand on its own two feet."
