The virtual race is starting on 15 October
The Giro d’Italia Virtual hosted by BKOOL is an exclusive project with several different phases set to continue until May 2022. The event is suitable for owners of a smart trainer or smart bike and participation is subject to registration at www.girovirtual.com.
How does it work
The Giro d’Italia Virtual hosted by BKOOL is made up of three separate rounds, running from October to May 2022; Grande Partenza – Part 1 (from 15th October to 2nd January), Grande Partenza – Part 2 (from 14th January to 3rd April), and Grande Arrivo (from 6th to 29th May), which takes place simultaneously with the 2022 Giro d’Italia.
The first to be tackled will be the opening stage of the 2021 Grande Partenza, with four routes in total that partially follow the official stages of last May: Stage 1. Torino TISSOT ITT: 8.3 km / 14 m+ // Stage 2. Verbania – Alpe Motta: 8.7 km / 630 m+ // Stage 3. Perugia – Montalcino: 25 km / 540 m+ // Stage 4. Milan TISSOT ITT: 25 km / 13 m+.

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.
