This is where CHPT3 was created and where its design studio is based. Girona’s...

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 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.
