The Giro d’Italia was founded by the Gazzetta dello Sport in 1909, not only as a major national sporting event, but also as an endless storybook, so “that there might be a song for those yet to be born”, as Homer said.
The 2021 Giro finished on May 30, but many of its stories are still to be told.
Therefore, this year, we are launching the first “Giro d’Italia Awards” as a way to let you help us pick and immortalize the best moments of the Corsa Rosa.
How will this work?
There will be 12 categories, with 4 nominees each, which will be revealed little by little over the next days.
You will be casting your vote on our Instagram profile, and we will be telling the story of each chosen winner.
The categories will be as follows:
- Best rider in a leading role
- Best domestique
- Best team
- Best breakaway
- Best summit finish
- Best sprint
- Best revelation of 2021
- Best attack
- Best teamwork
- Amore Infinito Award
- The most amazing stage
- Best city dressing of all host cities
We will be starting on Tuesday, June 15!
We’ll see you on our Instagram profile to begin this new journey together, the first “Giro d’Italia Awards”, to celebrate an endless love – Amore Infinito – that has been telling countless stories since 1909.
