Giro d’Italia Virtual hosted by BKOOL, the second round begins


The Giro d’Italia Virtual, organised by RCS Sport and BKOOL, is an indoor cycling project that offers cycling fans the opportunity to experience the magic of the Corsa Rosa across multiple stages, from home, riding their own bike , with a smart trainer or a power meter.
Riders are able to enter a virtual challenge at any time, through a digital platform, in which 3D simulation and real video merge to reach the maximum real experience in each stage.

The 3 rounds of the Giro d'Italia Virtual hosted by BKOOL
