It follows the same route as the professional event, the only difference being in the stage start place. The event comprises 18 stages, ranging from 70 to 115 kilometers daily. Each stage is raced in a compact peloton, with the exception of a few sections where all participants will engage in regularity and special trials with their teams, whereas team captains will be competing for sprints at each stage finish.

The event is raced using solely pedal-assisted E-road racing bicycles provided by each team. 

Participants will home in on the same finish line as the Giro d’Italia, under the same finish arch, at least one hour before the scheduled finish of the Pro race.

 The event has a dedicated hospitality area, which all participants can access to attend the Giro d’Italia stage finish.
