With the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España, the Giro d’Italia is one of the Grand Tours: the three major European professional cycling stage races. The race has been held annually since its first edition in 1909. The route changes each year, whereas the format of the race stays the same, with at least two time trials, and a passage through the spectacular Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
