Giro d’Italia - The Third Week

May 21 - May 28 2018
Bergamo, Italy

Join us for an unforgettable week (NON -Riders welcome) in Italy following the 2018 Giro d’Italia. Ride parts of the route each day and experience the thrill of getting up close to the pro peleton as they battle for the pink jersey. Our beautifully crafted tour incorporates the very best of Italian hospitality, cuisine and cycling culture. Our head guide and ex -pro Danielle Ratto will ride with you each day and will happily share stories of his time in the pro peleton riding with Sagan and Nibali.

Our no hassel packages allow you to focus on riding and enjoying the Giro d’Italia. Our dedicated team of staff will insure that you all you need to worry about is taking photos and how much ice cream you want to order. We know the best places to take you for coffee and as the only full time cycling tour operator in Italy we rightly are considered experts in Italian cycle tourism.

We offer flexibility to our clients and appreciate that not everyone will want to ride everyday and not everyone will want to ride ‘long’ distance. Our inclusive approach gives everybody the chance to do as much or as little as the wish. We welcome non-riders and those who simply wish to enjoy Italy in all all it’s splendid glory.

This trip is limited to 12 people and we welcome the opportunities to send you more details on request.

About Tour Guide Danielle Ratto

I live in Bergamo and I was born in 1989. I rode for 20 years and I’ve been pro-cyclist since 2010. I was teammate of champions such as CARLOS SASTRE, DENIS MENCHOV, IVAN BASSO, PETER SAGAN, ELIA VIVIANI, VINCENZO NIBALI, JOSÈ COBO ACEBO and many others. I took part in Giro d’Italia, Vuelta de España, the big classics in Belgium, Milano-San Remo and other important races.

When I was younger I was a climber. I won the silver medal at the World Championships in Mexico and two International stage races. Over the years I became more all-ronder with a good high speed for sprints and I specialized more and more as a sprinter support rider (Peter Sagan, Elia Viviani etc.).

I early won my first pro-race in 2010 in Italy, while the following year I was teammate of Denis Menchov and Carlos Sastre. I got several top results: I achieved to win the queen stage of Vuelta de España 2014, where I almost won the Mountain leader jersey too. In 2015 at Tour of Turkey I fought with Mark Cavendish for the point jersey till the last stage, in the end I was second in this classification but I even got a good top ten in the overall classification of the tour. I took part in many editions of big stage races, I travelled all around the World and now I bring a lifetime of experience in cycling.
