2022 Giro-E to take place from 10 to 29 may

16/02/2022

After the inaugural edition in 2018, this year’s Giro-E is the fourth to take place

Participants will conquer the roads of the Corsa Rosa with pedal-assisted bikes across 18 stages that share the same route as the Giro d’Italia.

After the inaugural edition in 2018, this year’s Giro-E is the fourth to take place and will start from Sicily on 10 May, ending in Veneto on 29 May. It’s a pedal-powered ‘Giro d’Italia’ that is built on technology, ecology and sustainable mobility; but above all, the most beautiful cycling experiences in the world.
This year’s edition will be one filled with innovations, which should come as no surprise given the Giro-E’s modern, forward-thinking outlook. Its history runs in parallel with that of its ‘older cousin’, the Giro d’Italia. Exactly a century ago, in 1912, the fourth Giro d’Italia took place, starting from Milan and arriving in Bergamo, spanning just nine stages (the shortest in the history of the race). The 1912 race was the first and only Giro d’Italia ever to be contested by teams. The cyclists of the Giro-E, a century later, will take on twice as many stages and will cover around half as many kilometers: 1,000km in comparison to the 2,443km ridden by their ‘ancestors’. The effort required to achieve this will be much less, however. This is thanks to the electric motors and batteries concealed in the frames of the pedal-assist bikes, named e-road, upon which the Giro-E is contested.
The only stage event in the world reserved for pedal-assisted bicycles, the Giro-E is an e-bike experience that takes place on the same roads of the Giro d’Italia during the Corsa Rosa itself. It offers participants the full Giro experience: race sign-on at the start, the opportunity to wear a leader’s jersey, the prize-giving on the champions’ podium and exclusive hospitality at the finish line. It also offers the extraordinary opportunity to ride alongside cycling legends, champions of sport and business professionals who share a strong passion for cycling. The event is created by RCS Sport, the same organiser of the Giro d’Italia, which for the fourth year welcomes Enel X as title sponsor.
Unlike the Corsa Rosa, the 2022 Giro-E will skip the Grande Partenza in Budapest and will instead start in Sicily, from stage number four of the Giro d’Italia. From that moment on, it will follow the same route, with the exception of the starting cities, which are dedicated to the Giro-E and where, this year, there will be the great novelty of EXPO-E. EXPO-E is a trade fair exploring the topics of micro-mobility, sustainability and respect for the environment that will animate the weekend in Catania, Naples, Turin and Verona. This is a natural extension of an event whose aims include promoting the use of electric bikes in everyday life and consequently reducing fossil fuel consumption and pollution.

“The Giro-E is back, with its greenest edition ever,” says Paolo Bellino, CEO and General Manager of RCS Sport“The big news for 2022 will be EXPO-E, a trade fair created in collaboration with ANCMA and EICMA, which in four major cities will raise public awareness of the issues of sustainable mobility and respect for the environment, which have always been key pillars of the Giro-E. This event, which will accompany the professional riders’ Giro d’Italia, is one of the formats that our company is particularly keen on in order to continue developing the social responsibility projects that the entire RCS group has always supported”.
“Once again this year we are enthusiastically renewing our partnership with Giro-E, the perfect combination of sport and sustainability,” says Augusto Raggi, Head of Enel X Italia“Thanks to the stages planned across various regions, it will be possible to bring the adrenaline of competition throughout the peninsula. It’s a perfect opportunity to show people Enel X’s innovative solutions that respect the environment, enhance the territory and accelerate the country’s energy transition”.
“The Giro-E is an event that is constantly growing and evolving from all points of view,” explains Roberto Salvador, director of the Giro-E“This year the number of participating teams has increased from 10 to 15, and new initiatives have been created, such as EXPO-E but also the Green Village, which will be present at all the Giro-E start lines. These are initiatives that aim to amplify the message of sustainability and the need for a world on a more human scale”.
