Giro d’Italia 2014 Route

giro_italia_largeFull details of the route for the Giro d’Italia 2014 have been unveiled. It will begin on Friday, May 9 in Northern Ireland at the Titanic Belfast visitor centre with a 21.7km Team Time Trial, with the second day (218km) beginning in Belfast and taking in Antrim, Bushmills and the Giant’s Causeway. Day three of the non-Italian action is a 187km cross-border route from Armagh to Dublin in the Republic of Ireland. The day-early start, accepted and ratified by the UCI for 2014, has been introduced to facilitate an extra rest day for the transfer of the race to the Italian in Giovinazzo on May 13. 2014 marks the 11th time that the Giro has started outside of Italy.


Saxo-Tinkoff’s Nicolas Roche, who participated in the presentation launch for the Giro d’Italia 2014, commented on the inclusion of both Northern Ireland and the Republic: ‘I think it’s great. I know that people have been working very hard for many years to get the Giro to the two countries so I think it’s really exciting and it’s a huge achievement for the people involved and for both countries to host this fantastic cycling event. For the cycling fans in both countries, it’s going to be a unique experience…’
