Let us dispel a commonplace: the Giro-E is supposedly an event for pedal assist bicycles. In fact, the Giro-E is an event with pedal assist bicycles. And if it is true that it is an e-bike experience, it is legitimate to define it an (e-) bike Experience, with capital e. How come?
The e-bicycles, or more appropriately, the pedal assist bicycles enable you to live a unique experience riding a bike. Hence, the capital e in Giro-E. This event is not only the only grand tour, that is to say, a stage event with e-bikes worldwide; it especially is the most beautiful, intense, great, exciting experience that an ordinary cyclist can have. Do you want the Stelvio? You just climb it. Do you want the Mortirolo? You just climb it. As you would by yourself, or in hundreds of other occasions. What you cannot do by yourself is to live the impressions, the emotions, the moments typical of a grand tour, because the Giro-E lives is at one with the Giro d’Italia, along the same courses, with the same atmosphere.
Pedaling a stage of the Giro d’Italia: when would an ordinary cyclist do that? The Giro-E participant is pampered by his team (and by the organizer) like Nibali usually is, in the morning he already conquers a slice of eternity at the sign-in, the speaker presents him in all his “grandeur”, and the photograph with the teammates is no less than the one of the World Tour teams.
