Giro Rosa 2017 Team Presentations

This year’s Giro Rosa seems to have snuck up on us fast. It felt like no sooner had we recharged our batteries from the OVO Women’s Tour that it was time to pack our bags for Italy. The Giro Rosa team presentations were held in the grounds of the Basilica in Aquileia, although by the time the presentations got underway you couldn’t see much of the historical buildings as they were shrouded in darkness. Things run on their own time at the Giro Rosa, so when the event is due to start at 21:00 and it’s 21:45 and there’s no sign of any teams taking to the stage there’s no point getting frustrated by it, just go with the flow and the little quirks of the race become part of it’s charm.

Now it’s time for the racing to get underway, first up a team time trial from Aquileia to Grado. More on that this evening!

Have you checked out our Kickstarter campaign? We want to publish a book celebrating the women’s road cycling season. You can find out more here.

As you’ve made it this far you’ll definitely enjoy our women’s cycling photo book, but we need your help to make it happen. You can find out more and support the book on Kickstarter. We have a bunch of cool rewards including a copy of the book with your name in, a book and a wall calendar or even a photo shoot with us. But don’t wait too long, if we don’t hit the target by 22nd July then the book won’t happen.
