The organisers of the Giro d'Italia have signed up some of the top names in professional cycling for a 'Giro d'Italia Virtual' this month, with Vuelta a España winner Primoz Roglic, former world champion Lizzie Deignan, European champion Elia Viviani, Italian star Elisa Longo Borghini and Dutch time trial specialist Ellen van Dijk among the participants.

Unlike other virtual events that have taken place since the coronavirus pandemic, the Giro d'Italia Virtual allows riders to compete over each stage on their own time - they must finish and upload their ride within a three-day window for each stage.
