Details of our 2019 Trip
Our GIRO KOM Challenge provides the perfect mix of LIVE race-viewing and challenging and rewarding rides on the legendary routes and climbs of the GIRO in the Italian Alps & Dolomites.
The Giro Organisers have designed an exciting route this year with a climb-intensive last 10 days. They’ve also been quite creative with the inclusion of many lesser-known but really spectacular climbs such as the Colle del Nivolet, Colle San Carlo and Passo Manghen.
Our trip focuses on these last 10 days and is almost as climb-intensive as the Giro itself. Join us and you’ll ride the actual routes of several key stages and you’ll conquer an impressive list of the best climbs that Italy has to offer. Colle del Nivolet, Colle San Carlo, Passo Manghen all feature in our challenging ride program as well as the Passo Mortirolo, Passo Gavia, Passo Ghisallo, Passo Sella, Passo Pordoi and the Passo San Pellegrino, and of course the Passo Stelvio (weather-permitting).
