The 2016 Giro d'Italia will be run between the 6th & 29th May this year and is one of cycling's Grand Tour races. This year, the race starts in Apeldoorn, with a 9.8 km (6 mi) individual time trial, and continues onto two other stages hosted by the Netherlands - both between Nijmegen and Arnhem. Then, after a rest day, there will be 18 further stages to reach the finish in Turin. These stages are principally in Italy, although two stages take place partly in France. You can see an overview of this year's route here.
The four wildcard invitations for this year’s race have been announced, with Bardiani-CSF, Southeast-Venezuela, Nippo-Vini Fantini and Gazprom-Rusvelo all getting the golden ticket for the corsa rosa.
