The new edition of Il Giro di Sicilia promises to be awesome

28/07/2021

Regione Siciliana and RCS Sport have joined forces, and the Giro di Sicilia is now ready to begin again.

It came back home in 2019, after being gone for 42 years. In 2020, the pandemic put it on hold, once more. Regione Siciliana and RCS Sport have joined forces, and the Giro di Sicilia is now ready to begin again. Taking place on a spectacular route, which will be unveiled early in September, and in a perfect time of year, between late September and early October, this new edition promises to be awesome. This is one of the oldest and greatest stage races in Italy. The first edition was held in 1907, two years before the first Giro d’Italia. The event took place 18 times between 1907 and 1977, and victory always went to Italian athletes. Carlo Galetti, who later won the 1910 and 1911 Giro d’Italia, was the first one to conquer it, and the 19‑year‑old Beppe Saronni was the last one, back in 1977, before USA’s Brandon McNulty’s success in 2019.
