Points and prizes

In addition to enjoying the opportunity to ride on the same routes as professional cyclists, participants will benefit from the chance to earn points on each stage they ride. By registering for a round, participants will receive their first point. From then on, each completed stage adds another point (+1) and, for completing the round, participants will receive two points (+2). The final round, Grande Arrivo, in addition to awarding double points, takes into account the points obtained in any of the Grande Partenza rounds.

Points accumulated from the event will give participants the chance to win official Giro d’Italia jerseys and products, invitations to the Giro d’Italia and other important Italian races, accessories such as shoes, helmets, glasses or cycling clothes… and, of course, subscriptions to both Giro d’Italia Virtual and BKOOL.
