I’m a huge fan of Giro d’Italia, not so much for the actual competition although that is nice too, but for the scenery and stories told along the race.
There are 21 race days in total in which they cross Italy. It happens in late May - early June each year.
The 2017 edition was the 100th one, it was quite an anniversary. Dutch rider Tom Dumoulin won it, being just 31 seconds faster than the 2nd place. His time was 90h 34’ 54", that is 90 hours 34 minutes and 54 seconds of actual peddling over a total distance of 3.615,4 KM (171,7 KM - each day average)
They started in Sardegna, then went to Sicily, Calabria, Basilicata, Puglia, Molise, Umbria, Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna and then continued up north to the Italian Alps.
