This year marks the 102st edition of the Giro d'Italia and cycling enthusiasts can watch every stage of the competition live.
Giro d’Italia is one of cycling's Grand Tour races, along with the Tour de France and Vuelta a España. The prestigious multiple-stage bicycle race is mainly held in Italy, but often passes through nearby countries as well. The routes change every year. However, the format remains the same, with 21 day-long segments or stages taking place over a 23-day period. Participants get two rest days to recover during the event.
In 2019, the competition started on 11 May with an individual time trial in Bologna. The final race is scheduled to take place on 2 June in Verona.
