Giro-E 2022, what a success!


A boom of participants – 1,500 cyclists across 18 stages

The 2022 edition of the Giro-E has been confirmed as the most spectacular and successful in its young history. The 4th edition of the race saw over 1,500 cyclists, including managers, well-known personalities, influencers, invited journalists, customers of the sponsors of the various teams, captains and many former sports champions participate in the 18 stages.

Cycling giants such as Gianni Bugno, Oscar Freire, Igor Astarloa, Damiano Cunego, Andrea Tafi and Mario Cipollini rode alongside cycling enthusiasts at the Giro-E. Champions from other sports, such as Carlos Checa, Valentina Vezzali, Marco Albarello, Antonio Rossi, Isotta Kostner, Deborah Compagnoni, Massimiliano Rosolino, Giuseppe Gibilisco, Andrea Lo Cicero and Giorgio Di Centa also took part in the event. The Italian Minister of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies Stefano Patuanelli, the CEO of Toyota Motor Italia Luigi Ksawery Luca’, the Director of Enel Group Nicola Lanzetta and the CEO of ENIT Roberta Garibaldi were among others who rode the Giro-E.

With Enel X as its title sponsor, The Giro-E is an event reserved for teams. The race saw 13 teams participate in all 18 stages, yet several Special Teams, only participating in some stages, were included too. Enel X enrolled a second team in Stage 5, with Toyota doing the same in Stage 14, and Trenitalia added a team for the company TPER (Emilia-Romagna Passenger Transport) in Stage 8. The Carglass Special Team rode four stages (9, 10, 11 and 13).

18 stages, totalling 1,026 kilometers in distance, with 24,780 meters of vertical elevation provided plenty of emotions and surprises in this ‘Giro within the Giro’, taking place on the same roads, and in the same days, as the Corsa Rosa. Cycling enthusiasts rode alongside big names of the sport and were challenged by 15% gradient ascents, thanks to their electrically assisted bikes.

EXPO-E, a new way to narrate sustainable mobility to the world.

EXPO-E, the traveling fair about the new horizons of sustainable mobility was also a huge success. Created as a contact point between companies and the public, it provided in-depth talks and product tests. The four stages of the first edition were in Catania, Naples, Turin and Verona.


Paolo Bellino, CEO of RCS Sport: “Territory, tourism, excellence and ‘Made in Italy’. The Giro-E is the ambassador of Italy who travels slow but looks to the future. It is a window on the beauty of our country and on the future of mobility. It’s an event realised thanks to the collaboration of the many partners and institutions that support us as they recognise the values of the Giro as an exceptional tool for international promotion. With the introduction of Expo-E, the Giro-E is completed and becomes the best opportunity for companies to present their products dedicated to sustainable mobility, to a highly engaged public, and for consumers, the opportunity to test them”.

Roberto Salvador, Giro-E Director: “The success of the post-Covid edition demonstrates that the Giro-E is a mature event. This year we had a boom in attendees, long waiting lists, top-notch guests, a record number of teams and unprecedented attention from sponsors and partners. It is an event that is liked by those who participate, but also by the cities that host it, because it is an excellent way to involve the population on the themes of sustainable mobility and respect for the environment. With the introduction of EXPO-E, which debuted in four major cities, the Giro-E is confirmed as the most important event in the e-bike world and one of the strategic events of zero-impact mobility, not only in two wheels”
