The 97th GIRO D’ITALIA 2014
The Start in Belfast & The Crucial Final Stages


The 96th Giro d'Italia which took place in 2013 saw some of the most horrendous weather conditions imaginable. Vicenzo Nibali was the deserved winner and Cadel Evans made a fantastic comeback with his podium place.

We are now already looking forward to the 2014 Giro d'Italia which will start in Ireland. The 97th edition of this iconic cycling race will have its first two stages in and around Belfast. The third stage will be from Armagh to Dublin.

The team presentation of the 2014 Giro will be a public event in the city of Belfast and it will take place on Thursday the 8th of May.

VIP Hospitality Packages are also available for the Start in Ireland.

On the first cycling day, which will be the 9th of May 2014, there will be a spectacular 21.7km team time trial round the city of Belfast with a start in the Titanic quarter, passing by Stormont and a finish at Belfast Town Hall. On the 10th of May 2014 the racing will start again in Belfast's Titanic Quarter, beofre heading to the Irish coast and visiting places such as Bushmills and Giants Causeway, before returning to Belfast. The third day 11th May 2014 will start in Armagh at The Mall and it will finish in Dublin city centre.

There is then a rest day, before the Giro d'Italia resumes in Southern Italy, heading northwards thorugh the centre of the country and then onwards to the north west of the country. Here there will be some important stages and linked to the memory of Marco Pantani, including a stage to Oropa, where Pantani won the pink jersey back in 1999, and a stage to Montecampione, scene of another of Pantani's victories.

As the 2014 Giro d'Italia moves through the final week, there is a stage taking in the Gavia and the Stelvio, which was missed in 2013 due to the snow, and the penultimate stage sees a mountain top finsh at Zoncolan, one of the most feared cycling climbs in the World - if the Giro is not won by this point, it will be on this day. The 2014 Giro d'Italia then finshes the following day in Trieste.

As the second most important stage race in the cycling World, the Giro d'Italia always has a major bearing on who may potentially win the same year's Tour de France and we are very pleased that the 2014 Tour de France will also start in the UK, namely in Yorkshire.
Travel packages to the 2014 Tour de France are also available now.
