The main colour of the Giro d’Italia is pink, so it’s not surprising that there are so many girls following it as fans or working at the race. For example, you can see them dancing in the publicity caravan, the colourful parade of official sponsors that precedes the riders every day, distributing giveaways to the spectators waiting along the road for the big cycling show. And, of course, during...

The route climbs up Monte di Ragogna, with gradients consistently over 10 percent for the first 2.5 kilometers and ramps topping out at 16 percent. The steepest stretches on the Avaglio get close to 15...

All the riders who line up at the start of the Giro d’Italia dream of it, but they’re not the only ones. Every bike racer, from an early age, imagines wearing that color when fantasizing about his moment of glory on two wheels. It’s the pink jersey, the symbol of supremacy, worn for three weeks by the rider who at that moment leads the general classification. In the more than hundred-year...

The wake-up. The routine that begins again and repeats itself for three weeks: eating breakfast, getting ready and then heading by bus to the start area. All this and much more happens every morning during the Giro d’Italia — and by now almost every racer goes through the motions without even thinking, before the day really starts and with it the hard effort in the saddle, which will end only...

After I pinched (another!!) nerve back in December and got ill before the national cross championships I did not get selected for the world championships in Valkenburg. With only a few other races in January, I wasn’t sure where to go from there. Even though I wasn’t in good shape I did not feel like ending my season. So together with my partner, I thought up the perfect plan to end the 2017/18...

The white gravel roads of Tuscany and the grueling ups and downs of the route make it sapping next to the northern Classics despite its shorter distance. The one-day race is perhaps one of the most evocative races in world cycling and being relatively new to the calendar has quickly become a fans’ favorite. The 2018 edition had added drama with it.
