Stage 1 BOLOGNA BOLOGNA (San Luca) ITT – 8.2km 

  • This is a short Individual Time Trial with 6km of flat roads followed by 2km of steep climbing. The route covers wide, largely straight, city streets until the foot of the San Luca climb. It lasts 2.1km and has an average gradient of 9.7% with long sections above 10% and the steepest section at 16% in the final kilometer.
  • We will approach the riders warmup, the start ramp and of course, and the ceremony at the end of the stage. We will see the riders from the first one, until the last one, probably Chris Froome, the defending Giro champion that will try to hold on to his pink jersey

Sunday, May 12th: Giro d’Italia stage 2 "BOLOGNA-FUCECCHIO"

  • Today we can watch the riders at the start in the Pucinni VIP Hospitality zone as they prepare to roll out for stage 2.
  • An expo type village is created at the start of each one of the stages. It is usually here that everyone who is linked in any way to the Giro including sponsors, media and celebrities from the cycling world will show themselves. Also local companies will be keen to show off their wares. Your VIP passes will give you access to one of the Hospitality Areas located close to the stage where the riders will sign on for the days stage.
  • MEET THE RIDERS IN THIS ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE!
  • You will receive a day pass which gives you access to your Hospitality Area with snack/coffee bar service available. After signing in for today's stage, the riders will typically head to the hospitality areas where you will have chance to get up close to them and experience the exciting pre-race atmosphere. If you are into collecting autographs, this is the best place for it!
  • A highlight: your VIP accreditation also gives you access to the riders' start area so you can mingle with the racers and team directors, and other people close to the inner world of pro cycling. Many people really enjoy the start village access due to the fact that you get very close to professional riders and have personal insight into the inner workings of the 2019 Giro d'Italia.
  •  Tonight we will spend our last night at our hotel in Bologna.


Monday , May 13th:   All too soon, our Giro concludes after breakfast.
